“Salted Caramel...mmmmm”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Love this little shop, always good service and great ice cream. I live a few blocks away, and I always need to peddle a little harder after my visit here.

“Great beach ice cream”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

The ice cream here is sooo good! There are a ton of flavors and options for toppings. It is on the pricey side though so bring your wallet.

“Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream Ever!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We fell in love with Dips at first bite! They feature Working Cow Ice Cream which is yummy but the Peanut Butter Chocolate was amazing with a ribbon of peanut butter wound throughout the chocolate ice cream.
Be advised the shop is very small and at peak times, say 8-9 PM, especially weekends the line will potentially come out the shop and down the steps to the street.
They also feature a warm brownie sundae that received rave reviews from our group.
As with many spots on the island, parking is a premium. You may have to circle the block or park on Gulf Drive and walk back to the shop.

“Great variety”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Great variety of ice cream flavors...even chocolate and vanilla...and delicious, too! Perfect treat for after the beach or just because. The shop is very small and the lines are very long!
