Right on Siesta Key you’ll find a slew of sweet shops to indulge in. From scientifically-perfected ice cream to delicious candy-topped frozen yogurt, Siesta Key is exactly where you need to be to satisfy that sweet tooth after a few hours on some of Florida’s best beaches.

Below are the 4 places where you can make it happen. Each spot offers something distinctly different in style. Everyone in the family can find the exact kind of sweet treat they want.

Made in Rome Organic Gelato

Location: 5204 Ocean Blvd, Siesta Key, FL 34242

Made in Rome is in the smack-center of Siesta Key Village and it unequivocally offers the most authentic and legitimate Italian gelato on the island- and maybe even the state.

It’s organic, as well, which means no hydrogenated fats, no preservatives, and no dyes or colorants. The spoons are also made of 100% recyclable corn fiber. The cones are also organic and made from vegan waffle batter.

The gelato shop’s Siesta Key Village location is also ideal. The village is a prime location for seeing the many Siesta Key restaurants and boutiques. The village is also right outside your beachside Siesta Key condo rentals.

Made in Rome is open every day from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. You can call the gelato shop at (941) 960-5344 for further details.

SunniBunni Siesta Key

Location: 5202 Ocean Blvd, Siesta Key, FL 34242

You can double dip for your next vacation. SunniBunni is directly next door to Made in Rome Organic Gelato in Siesta Village. Half the family can head left for some authentic gelato while the other half indulges in some lever-fueled frozen yogurt.

Choose from hundreds of different toppings. The spot is also famous for local and farm-fresh fruit smoothies. It’s dubbed the “Ten Minute Spa for Your Tummy” for a reason.

The frozen yogurt stop is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Contact them directly at (941) 349-5555. For good and classic frozen yogurt with a fruit customization bar, you can’t go wrong.

Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream

Location: 219 Avenida Madera, Sarasota, FL 34242

There’s a trend happening now in ice cream that is scientifically-perfected for your satisfaction. It is nitrogen flash-frozen ice cream, and it’s a wonderful treat for visitors. Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream welcomes visitors to a rush of fog and noise from the nitrogen-based freezes happening right on the spot.

Guests select their combination, which includes their base mix, toppings, and the type of milk they want used. The concoction is then flash-frozen with a nitrogen freeze and made to order.

The spot has two locations, one on Siesta Key and another in Sarasota. You can guide a science-minded sweet treat from 12 p.m. to 9p.m. on weekdays and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Any questions about how the process works and how it actually tastes? Call the Sub Zero team (941) 349-4062.

Big Olaf Creamery

Location: 5208 Ocean Blvd, Sarasota, FL 34242

Sweet treat enthusiasts will find the focus-on-the-basics approach at Big Olaf Creamery pleasing. It’s all about ice cream, pure and unique, and there’s plenty of it to go around. The rotating menu offers different seasonal delights.

Choose from some popular bases, such as Black Cherry, Heath, Chocolate Deluge, and Berry Blast. Select a topping (or five) and leave happy. The creamery also offers Italian ice, soft serve, and different variations including banana splits and pecan sundaes.

Call Big Olaf directly at (941) 349-9392 or just stop by Siesta Key Village any day of the week between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m.
