When you’re hankering for frozen treats made with a whole lot of love, get on over to Blue Mountain Creamery. Owned and operated by a local family, this Santa Rosa Beach eatery serves up imaginative creations made with their homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt.

Although their frozen fare gets the most attention, they start each day off right with coffee made any way you’d like it plus donuts and other breakfast favorites. Made either sweet or savory to match your cravings, their Walkin’ Waffles are particularly good.

To even have a chance at getting your preferred breakfast items, you have to show up early ready to stand in the line. At any given time, you can count on at least 30 people in front of you, but it’s well worth sticking around for a taste of what’s on offer. Whether it’s raining, nearly closing time, or the middle of winter, you’ll undoubtedly find a line extending out the front of Blue Mountain Creamery.

To handle all the demand, Blue Mountain Creamery effectively runs two shops out of one building. Their front window handles all the orders for ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbets. Behind the shop, they serve their coffee, donuts, milkshakes, shave ice, and so much more. So, make sure to take a good look at the menu before getting in line or you could end up waiting for the wrong thing.

Fan favorites on the menu at Blue Mountain Creamery include:

Cold Brew
If you want to start your day off right, their Cold Brew has just what it takes. To make it all your own, you can add creamer and your syrup flavorings of choice, including vanilla, hazelnut, lavender, honey, or coconut. If you want to go all out, get the vanilla, caramel, and chocolate flavorings for a candy-bar-inspired drink.

Donuts
Pair your coffee at Blue Mountain Creamery with amazing Donuts to kick your day into overdrive in an instant. They have all the best flavors from Charlie’s Donuts on tap, available as singles or by the dozen. They sell out fast, so you have to get there early to get a taste. But it’s well worth getting up at the break of dawn.

Sundaes
Their ice cream is the true star of the show and getting your favorite flavors as a Sundae only proves to elevate the experience. You’ll want to start by selecting your ice cream flavor, like Cookie Butter, Strawberry Cheesecake, or Salty Banana Foster. Then, add syrup and toppings to your liking to complete your tasty creation.

Concretes
Made using their frozen yogurt, the Concretes let you get decadent mix-ins in every bite. To create this dish, they blend whatever mix-ins you’d like with your selected custard flavor, and then put it in a cup. You get two topping options for the base price, although you could add more for an extra charge.

Want to share your love of Blue Mountain Creamery wherever your travels take you? Just buy your very own branded t-shirt to wear on all your travels. They sell their shirts right at the front counter, making it easy to walk away with all the swag you could want. The drawing of their iconic building on the back of the shirt always serves as a great icebreaker, so you can meet fellow ice cream lovers on every trip.

Insider Tips:
-They only serve coffee until 6 pm, so arrive before then to get your fill.
-Although their website states they’re a cash-only establishment, they do accept debit cards, too. Since the line is so long, it’s best to grab a bit of cash out of the onsite ATM just to be safe.
-If you need to keep it gluten-, sugar-, or dairy-free, just ask what they have available.
-You’re welcome to bring your pup and even get them a little cup of deliciousness all their own.
