Grab a cold one – an ice cream cone, that is – at The Big Olaf.
This creamery is a must-stop when in Siesta Key, although there are seven locations around Sarasota (and 50 throughout Florida!) if you are wandering … and wondering.
The Siesta Key store is the original, opened in 1982 by local Amish craftsmen, who use only the best ingredients to produce the best product out there.
This place is beloved by locals and vacationers alike, who always make it a stop on their itinerary.
During the summer, plan to wait in line.
However, this will provide an ample amount of time to select your perfect cone and flavor combination from the extensive selection – like a Big Olaf with Rainbow Sprinkles filled with Berry Blast or a Small Chocolate Waffle Cone with Kahlua Krunch.
There’s also fudge (in many flavors) and soft-serve, blended coffee, smoothies and hand-spun milkshakes.
That’s a lot of reasons to visit, and we can’t think of any excuse not to!
