The succulent scent of baked sugar cones and coffee hits you when you walk in the door. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, who is incredibly kind of humble. We tasted a variety of ice cream before making our decisions. The ice cream...More

Granddaughters made sure we visited the Orange Octopus EVERY DAY for one more cup of cotton candy ice cream. They both left with tee shirts to remember their time eating ice cream on vacation!

Nice little ice cream shop with some unique flavors and the normal lineup. All five flavors we had were fantastic! Definitely stop by if you're craving something sweet.

Great ice cream shop with a very friendly staff! Parking was very hard to get due to the Xmas season. The crowds are everywhere. The ice cream was yummy and the prices are very reasonable.

Every ice cream flavor I’ve tried is delicious. My favorite though, is a Dutch chocolate/ coffee ice cream shake. I think it’s 5 scoops total (3/2). The best bargain, and a great shake!!

This old fashioned, family owned coffee and ice cream shop is located in Captain Curt's Village a few hundred yards south of the Stickney point (south bridge). It is beside the bike and kayak rental shop. They are super friendly and have a gourmet coffee bar, 24 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.
