Had to have some sweets while roaming around old Key West, and found this place. Didn't get the lady's name behind the counter (a Texas girl) but she was very friendly and helpful. Glad we stopped, try it out.

Kilwins is a must stop in on Duval Street in Key West. A super friendly staff, free tasting and great product make it a well worth it place to visit. Best buy for the money. Cones are not skimpy like some other ice cream places in Key West. The chocolates and fudge are divine! Don't miss it!

My fiance and i headed to Kilwins, after reading excellent reviews online. My fiance ordered ordered a two scoop icecream of vanilla and cheesecake and I ordered one scoop of dulce de leche. We both really enjoyed our icecreams and would defiantly return. Fudge looked amazing too. Highly recommend.

Had seen this dessert place for several day because it was across the street from where our shuttle from Marriott Beachside would pick us up! The last night we went in! I had the peach ice cream & it was great! Our kids had been to a Kilwins in Celebration, FL & they loved it too!

The best ice cream and fudge I have ever tasted. They have pistachio ice cream and my new favorite, key lime pie ice cream. The best thing is that they offer military discount!
