Florida made hand-dipped ice cream, sorbet, sherbet, and hard-packed frozen yogurt.
Stumbled across this ice cream shop as just around the corner from our hotel . Fantastic service, great range of ice creams and delicious. Understand why it is rated so well on TripAdvisor. Worth the trip and lovely for an after dinner stop.

Big Water Fish Market opened its doors on 11/11/11 at 11am with owner Scott Dolan at the helm. We are near the south bridge on Siesta Key in the Crescent Beach Shopping Center next to Siesta Spirits liquor store. We are a retail fish market that specializes in fresh, wild, Florida seafood and we also offer a simple but delicious casual dining menu. We were voted "Best Grouper Sandwich" on the island in 2013 and we serve fresh, made-to-order meals until 6:45pm on weekdays and until 6:00pm on Saturdays and it's always BYOB! Come in and try a Seafood Steampot with crab legs, shrimp, clams, mussels, potatoes and corn on the cobb or any of our other great selections. We offer our customers the freshest fish, seafood, and produce available in a clean boutique style market. In addition, we carry a variety of specialty spices, sauces, and products to compliment your seafood. If you ever want something that we don't have in stock, just let us know and we will make some calls. In most cases we can get it to you the next day. Whether you live here or you're visiting beautiful Siesta Key, please visit the Big Water Fish Market for all your FRESH seafood needs!
This restaurant came highly recommended so I thought I’d give it a try. I have a garlic allergy which makes dining out very limiting, but this place takes the cake. Why does pineapple slasa require garlic? Why put Old Bay seasoning in the cucumber-tomato salad? While no one at our table complained about the food, no one raved either.
Like all beach areas, your’re going to wait to get in during season (ours was shorter than average at about 40 mins) but the service was less than speedy (food arrived at least 45 mins after we ordered).

We picked up some donuts for a snack. The fresh, hot donuts were perfect! We tried the donuts with cinnamon and sugar. My son had donuts with chocolate sauce on them. We highly recommend!

Serving Artisan Gelato/Sorbet made fresh daily. Also serving coffee, specialty coffee/espresso drinks and pastries.
I have had gelato in Italy and it was wonderful. So I chose to go to Ciao Gelato, instead of an ice cream shop down the way. It was not as creamy as what is done in Italy. And most of all, NONE of the...MoreOur Gelato is awarded 4 years consecutive best frozen dessert voted by people in the Venice Gondolier Sun magazine ! Authentic Italian traditionally home made .

Olaf's has a large variety of ice cream and gelato flavors on the menu. Use your time in line to choose a flavor to try. The line moved quickly and the coconut ice cream was exceptional. Coconut ice cream tends to be on the dry side, Olaf's was creamy.

It is a market and a deli, with superb home-made food and a cafe serving gourmet sandwiches, fresh pizza, Deli Meat & Cheeses Imported and Domestic and a full line of Italian Groceries. And not to mention our own Homemade Sausage made daily.
Owners are friendly and helpful. Italian desserts (i.e. ricotta cheesecake and sfgiatelle) and coffee are delicious and sandwiches are large. Having moved to Florida from the NY area, this is our place to go for Italian items like cheeses, olives, prosciutto, ravioli, etc. They carry...MoreThank you for the wonderful review.

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.
Love this ice cream shop. The ooey gooey brownie and Dutch chocolate are both really good. Hits the spot after any meal on the key!

Breakfast, Lunch and Brunch in Paradise
After lots of good reviews and recommendations decided to give it a try and will not be back. Average quality food products used, table water tasted like sulfur water. Waste of money and a breakfast out when there are so many other much better places for breakfast.
