Big Olaf is our sentimental favorite and we have been coming here for years. We love choosing a great ice cream and settling on the porch to enjoy it while people watching. Keep it purple forever!

This place has multiple interesting flavors available, various cones either unadorned or duped in fudge. The pistachio ice cream was amazing, as is the Salted Caramel Pretzel ice cream. If you're in Siesta Key, stop here - you won't be disappointed.

It doesn't matter what time of day, this place is always crowded. The ice cream is really really good. My husband can't wait to finish dinner so he can have his butter pecan double cone. Lot's of flavors as well,
