We have Kilwins where we live, but we only ever go when on vacation elsewhere. Part of our Key West tradition is to go there (often at 11pm), get a ton of delicious fudge and chocolate covered decadences, then pick up a gallon of milk and slowly work through the sugar over our vacation.

This place never lets me down. A quick sugar rush in a waffle cone with a scoop of rum raisin and butter pecan is a must. Can I say delicious.

This was our first time into a Kilwin's Ice Cream parlour. The selection of ice cream and fudge was extensive. My wife and I both chose the Pralines n Cream. Add in one chocolate dipped cone and one waffle cone and we headed out of the store to savour our treats. Outstanding! Fresh, creamy and very flavourful.

Loved the coconut fudge. Best I have ever had! We also got the homemade ice cream. All are delicious (we sampled many). My favorite was the cake batter!! They are very generous with samples - I recommend sampling everything before committing!! So many choices!!

Walking past this place draws you in. The smell of caramel and waffle cones fills the air with heaven. The ice cream to me, however, is a little tasteless, and I've tried more than one flavor.

Our unique ice cream flavors are something we take great pride in, so I'm sorry to hear this. I'm sure there's a flavor on our menu that you'll love, so I'd love the chance to help you find it. Hope to see you soon, Matt Morello, Owner More

My daughter is an ice cream shop freak! We were in Key West and we went to every single ice cream parlor on the island. She says this is the one Dad! Great treats for all tastes.
