This is a cute whimsical ice cream shop. Plenty of seating. Games to play like checkers. They sell Blue Bell ice cream (a Texas favorite). They had me torn between the famous warm brownie sundae and the big fat banana split. I went with the...More

Ice cream was great (Blue Bell), limeade was a little disappointing. This place is crazy colorful indoors, the walls covered with all kinds of things to look at, walls painted all different colors, chairs and tables hand-painted and bedazzled. The decor is a little overwhelming...More

The owner of the beach house we rented said this was the best place to go in Port A for ice cream, so we headed over on Sunday evening. The shop itself is adorable, but the ice cream is simply Blue Bell. And they charge...More

The line was long but it moved quickly. The staff was friendly and there were lots of options (not just ice cream). There was a foosball table for the kids to play while they wait!

Description
After 8 years in Port Aransas I have moved down the main street, Alister, after new owners bought the building I was in. I re-opened in February 2013 . If you want to keep having my Famous Brownie Sundaes, coffee shakes, Key Lime Pie shake, cheesecake, apple pie and the Big Fat Banana Split come to the new 2700 sq. ft. shop. Same bright pink and yellow colors with the decor collected from my travels around the world. If you go looking for me in my old location KNOW that it is not me. There is only one Desserted Island! Smell the brownies!
