Description: 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.

“Ice Cream on Siesta Key!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

If you stay on Siesta Key, and go to Captain Curt's or Sniki TIki, don't forget to go to the Orange Octopus for some delicious ice cream. I had my pineapple orange ice cream whipped into a milkshake. WOW!

“Fabulous Little Gem”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I just discovered this ice cream parlor on Siesta Key today. What a fantastic place. The ice cream is great, but the hot fudge is to die for! For good old fashioned fattening ice cream, this is the place to go.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

The ice cream was very tasty, the 1 scoop cup is enough even if you usually eat a lot. The staff is very polite and welcoming.
There is plenty of choice for the flavors.
A place not to be missed.

“Great Ice Cream”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Great place to go for ice cream on Siesta Key! I had the Butter Pecan and my wife had the Salted Carmel Ice Cream. Every time we come down to Siesta Key we always have to stop in (at least once).
