Ice cream is yummy during any time of the year, but it’s especially good after spending a hot summer day out on Siesta Key Beach. And luckily for anyone who lives out on Siesta Key or is perhaps thinking about buying a home or condo here, there’s certainly no shortage of options when it comes to where to get a scoop of your favorite flavor.
Big Olaf Creamery
A Siesta Key favorite for more than three decades, Big Olaf Creamery features hand mixed yogurt and ice cream, made from quality ingredients. While you’ll find the original store here, the brand has since expanded to several locations in the Sarasota area.
Ciao Gelato Siesta Key
Ciao Gelato, meanwhile, spoons up homemade Italian ice cream in a variety of flavors. You’ll find a great selection of freshly made sorbet and gelato here, along with some specialty drinks, sure to tempt your taste buds.
Made in Rome Organic Gelato
Made in Rome Organic Gelato, on the other hand, is known for serving up 100% organic gelato. This sweet location is family owned.
Finally, you won’t want to miss out on Orange Octopus. The ice cream shop prides itself on handmade ice cream, made without any additives. Along with ice cream the shop also serves up sorbet, coffee and milkshakes.
