The ice cream here was great. We could walk here from our condo. The staff was very friendly. It was nice not having to deal with the crowds down in The Village.

Love this ice cream shop. The ooey gooey brownie and Dutch chocolate are both really good. Hits the spot after any meal on the key!

I tasted several other flavors, but kept coming back to the salted caramel (3 x) !!! Cookies and cream tasted great. Brownie too. And the special - butter pecan - was wonderful with pecans that were fresh and crunchy. Some inside seating, and several benches...More

This old fashioned, family owned coffee and ice cream shop is located in Captain Curt's Village a few hundred yards south of the Stickney point (south bridge). It is beside the bike and kayak rental shop. They are super friendly and have a gourmet coffee bar, 24 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.
