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.

This place is really nice to go to because it is in walking distance of most condos and hotels near by. The ice cream/ coffee shop has so many fun flavors to choose from! The service was pleasant and helped us with a smile :) (by the way the cotton candy ice cream is awesome :)

There are three great places for some iced sweets on Siesta Key. This stands alone toward the South side of the key and you cannot go wrong. Great service, huge scoops - you only need one - and very high quality. I had not been here for several years and did not realize they now have indoor seating which is a blessing in this August humidity. Great afternoon snack!!

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!

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.

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.
