In a quaint town like Port St Joe, one of the tastiest ice cream and coffee shops around has a little something to offer! It's not gourmet but it's a window of caffeine-filled love.

In theory, it’s possible to start and end your day at Cape San Blas Coffee and Ice Cream. Stop by for a steaming cup of Community Coffee to enjoy during your morning beach stroll. Then, cap off a day of fun in the sun with a sweet treat in the evening. What the heck — you’re on vacation. Go ahead and cool off with a snow cone in the middle of the day, too! 

While this shop may be small and the name simplistic, Cape San Blas Coffee and Ice Cream hits all the right notes for a beach vacation. It’s got plenty of outdoor seating, an oversized chair that’s perfect for fun photo ops, and dozens of frosty, sweet treats to tempt your taste buds. From floats and sundaes to ice cream cones and milkshakes, you’ll find something that strikes your fancy.

Cape San Blas Coffee and Ice Cream has been around for years. Families who make the annual pilgrimage to the Cape San Blas area always include the quaint ice cream shop in their vacation plans. Is it fancy? Nope. Do they have gourmet ice cream? Also no. But they do have 16 varieties of Edy’s Ice Cream, eight kinds of smoothies, 12 snow cone flavors, and 29 syrups to create the perfect coffee concoction. If you’re looking for a cool treat, this is definitely the place to be.

A few of our menu favorites at Cape San Blas Coffee and Ice Cream included:

Espresso milkshake
Two great flavors pair perfectly in this delicious treat that’s just right for the morning, noon or night. Strong espresso is blended with vanilla ice cream to create this icy treat. They throw in an extra dollop of ice cream, just for good measure. You’ll love the rich taste. The extra jolt of caffeine is an added perk.  

Donut Sundae
What do you get when you plop a scoop of cool, creamy ice cream on top of a Weber’s Little Donut Shop cake donut? A little piece of heaven is what! Weber’s Donuts are famous on St. George Island, and Cape San Blas Coffee and Ice Cream take them to the next level by adding ice cream, caramel topping, nuts, and a cherry on top. Perfection!

Turtle Sundae
Dripping with caramel, chocolate, and Southern pecans, the Turtle Sundae is an ice cream lover’s dream come true. The rich, sweet, yet salty combination conjures memories of the candy of the same name. It’s just a bit colder and comes with a cherry and whipped cream!

Insider Tips:
During peak season, the line can get a little long. Don’t walk away! It moves quickly. You’ll be glad you stuck around.
