We enjoyed the ice cream very much, the staff of young girls were really friendly and helpful with making our selection. I had mint choc chip and loved every bite of it. My husband splurged and got a sundae which was too much for him to finish, he loved it.

Poco Loco closed. The people from "across the Causeway" who supplied its ice cream bought it and re-opened it in March 2015. More flavors, same good ice cream. The espresso machine should be in by April 2015. We still like the place, and recommend stopping in BEFORE you shop at Jerry's so you don't buy too much food. At least... More

The ice cream here is super tasty, rich and fresh. The black cherry didn't taste artificial at all and had real chunks of cherries in it. Don't bother with the bagels and pastries though- they looked so old and as if they were originally just unwrapped from a package. The atmosphere is bland as well, so take your ice cream... More

True homemade ice cream in a beautiful setting. The ice cream is rich, smooth and flavorful. We get ice cream here every year; multiple times while visiting Sanibel. The vanilla peanut butter, brownie batter and key lime pie are a few of my favorites.

We stopped by Poco Loco after dinner one evening to get dessert and were very pleased by their selection of Love Boat ice cream. The young lady who was working that evening was very friendly. We enjoyed our ice cream outside in the court yard and visited with the parrots and cockatoo. It was a nice ending to the evening.

Had ice cream at Pinnochio's which is supposed to be the best on the island (and it was good) but Love Boat ice cream here is absolutely the best. Just a small number of tables but who cares when in heaven eating a couple of their super flavors. This is the best on Sanibel hands down.

The servings are small, but the ice cream is good. I had raspberry cheese cake and lemon custard. Both were tasty. Service was good. Its located by Jerry's and is off the beaten path.

Delicious coffee drinks and kids enjoyed rocky road ice cream and brownie batter. Nice location in the shopping center near Jerry's foods.

We stopped in after riding bikes around the island and really enjoyed the homemade mango sorbet. We were looking for iced green tea and the barista stopped to make this fresh for us with the perfect amount of simple syrup. We really appreciated the personal attention and friendly service.

This ice cream parlor is located in the Jerry's shopping center.It was new so we decided while shopping to try it out. It is also home made and various flavors to choose, but limited. There is nice places inside in the cool to set or outside in the tropical setting of the shopping area. I got blueberry cheesecake. It was... More
