Found the Lickity Split Cafe by chance and so glad we did. We ordered sandwiches and then we enjoyed their homemade ice cream. The staff was so friendly and no complaints about the food! Recommend!

So I decided to have my lunch here while my car was being fixed across the street. I read where they make their own soups, and today's choices were BEEF CABBAGE SOUP or CHILI. I opted for the Beef cabbage soup and that was good, perhaps not worth the $3.99 for a small cup, but good nonetheless. Then I ordered... More

Love the homemade ice cream, but food great also. Homemade fries, homemade chips, great and cheap burgers. Also, for those of you who love tuna salad or egg salad sandwiches(which are hard to find anymore in restaurants) try here. Good choices in daily specials too. Retro diner experience. Nice servers.

Very good place for sandwiches, soups and salads. Everything very fresh and tasty. Good chili year round, specials every day. Home made potato chips served hot from the cooker. Oh year, be sure to save room for ice cream.

Yummy ! Go hungry. Everything is delicious from homemade soups to ice cream AND strawberry shortcake. Atmosphere is 1950's nostalgia. The service is outstanding. The prices are excellent.

After a hot day at the beach mom & I decided to have ice cream. We stumbled upon a little place called Lickety Split. The homemade ice cream was delicious! Their decor was retro theme. Back in time of drive in's, classic cars & old movies. The staff was super friendly! We went back a few days later for lunch.... More

We make an annual pilgrimage to Englewood, Florida every summer to visit with family and Lickity Split is always a must on our itinerary. The best homemade ice cream anywhere. Reasonably priced, huge variety of homemade ice cream, generous portions, and super friendly staff. YUM!!!
