A must have while you are in town. All flavors were delicious. I had the double espresso with chocolate chip and my husband had the coconut. my kids both had the Oreo. All are awesome and so much better than any other waxy ice cream big name shops.

The place is very small with a very few tables inside or out. I had a kids portion of a mocha flavor, my favorite, since I limit my sugar and they did not have any sugar-free flavors. There is a really neat shop adjacent that sells a lot of jewelry and other handcrafted items. There is very limited parking and... More

This is a must stop for our family when we are on Matlacha. A nice assortment of flavors. I enjoyed the toasted coconut and black raspberry. The staff is friendly and helpful in offering suggestions for flavor combinations.

We had ice here. Nothing special. Service was ok, ice was ok. Next door shop was nice. We've had better service and better ice elsewhere.

Last weekend I went to Great Licks Ice Cream. This place has fresh, locally made ice cream which is out of this world. We got little tastes before we all decided and it was sooooo good. The gentleman who served us was incredibly nice (I think his name is Mike), and we all selected different flavours which we all shared... More

This ice cream is so good. Should have more tables to sit at. But most people walk to see the shops. Staff is very quick & the flavor selection is always a challenge, because they ALL are so good

We are happy you enjoyed your ice cream! As you could see our shop is quite small but there are tables inside and outside. (3 in and 5 out). Remember we are a quaint little island and we make the most of our space available ;) More

Not being an ice cream lover I was surprised at the quality and how delicious this ice cream is! Now we can't pass without stopping! Love the key lime and coconut combined. A true island flavor. Enjoy
