“a Florida tradition since 1982”

Big Olaf Ice Cream was born in 1982, in the sleepy little town of Siesta Village, just a hop and skip from the powdery white sands of Siesta Key Beach. The little shop soon became famous. People came from far and wide for homemade waffle cones piled high with mounds of hand packed Ice Cream all made on location. Dennis Yoder, founder of Big Olaf, was also Chief Ice Cream maker. Using White Mountain Ice Cream Freezers, he carefully designed recipes for traditional flavors like Vanilla and Butter Pecan. Next, he concocted tons of other hits like runaway best seller Kahlua Krunch and Amarretto Almond. Dennis utilized the freshest creams in the country and the highest quality ingredients for every single batch.

Big Olaf's is the ice cream of Siesta (as there aren't really other options). All their ice creams are delicious and homemade. There's a few warnings here, it's not the cheapest ice cream (the beauty of no competition), the last time I were there was cash only, and usually very long lines. It's worth the wait if you make a social event out of it but otherwise I wouldn't bother.
