The long (but fast moving) line assured us we would find great ice cream inside and we weren't disappointed. Lots of flavors, fillings, and homemade waffle cones.

Fun staff. Good ice cream. Been visiting siesta for over 15 years. Always have to stop by at least once. I'm big on plain chocolate and coffee ice cream. Coffee is good and chocolate is great!

I have always called this place "St. Olaf" instead. Heavenly ice cream, and fun to sit on the porch and watch all the Siesta Key foot and car traffic go by.

This iconic ice cream joint right in the Siesta Key village is worth the wait. Excellent ice cream and sweets. There is often a line so be prepared.

Very crowded so we thought the ice cream would be very good. It was excellent. We had dinner a little earlier than usual and thought we'd stop here for dessert. Excellent ice cream. Excellent quality and quantity.
