Family owned, fresh ice cream, definitely the best around! There's two locations, one in Palm Harbor and one in downtown Dunedin (don't be surprised to find a long line), it's a very popular place. Great milkshakes!

One of our favorite spots to top off a trip to the beach to watch the sunset. Lots of flavors to choose from. Never disappoints.
