Happy Belly is in walking distance from our condo, which is not a good thing for our waistlines! We make sure to get Happy Belly ice cream for dessert at list once a trip. It's delicious!

Quaint place right on 12 just as you arrive on the island. Nice and cold inside, a great break from the beach heat. Good selections of interesting flavors. HUGE single serving size. Friendly service. A hit with the kids.
