When you approach Great Licks door, you will see cat prints on the wall and floor - if you're lucky you will get to meet Hector. He's the TNR that prefers to hang out here.

After a delicious dinner at the Old Fish Market ( the best dinner we've had here so far) we stopped at Great Licks Ice cream. From a person who doesn't normally eat ice cream due to the high fat and sugar contact, it was worth it!!

Homemade ice cream right here in the Islands. Great place for a quick stop while shopping the galleries or on the way to PineIsland. Quality ice cream and fun service.

Spent a lovely afternoon in the beautiful fishing village of Matlacha. Loved my choice of flavors ~ Raspberry Chocolate Chunk!!! I am watching my sugar intake, so I asked for a "baby cone," which was very adequate. We sat outside and people watched while enjoying our delicious ice cream!!!

Matlacha's signature ice cream shop. Super service, more than the usual choices, outside seating. We had a vanilla cup, coconut cup, and butter pecan. The latter was almost half pecan half ice cream. So good.

Had a good selection of ice cream which I sample and choose the raspberry with chocolate chips. It was rich in flavor and very creamy. Cones or cup the price was well worth the quantity. Will stop and get ice cream while in the area.

Stopped by and just in time, they close around 8ish and I came in about 7:50ish. Service was perfect, I saw the sign for ginger snap ice cream and thought my wife needed to have this. Stopped in, picked up, and was out in about 5 mins. Awesome place for delicious ice cream.

Good stuff! Who doesn't love ice cream? You can't sit outside or walk through the artsy store next door.
