Moo La-La Ice Cream and Dessert is a local favorite for sweet treats. Whether you’re looking for an afternoon sweet or an after-dinner treat, there’s something that will satisfy your craving here.

The food menu at Moo La La Ice Cream and Dessert is simple but delicious. There’s hard ice cream that comes in 24 rotating flavors, or you can opt to get a pastry. The ice cream is served in a cone or dish, or as a float or sundae if you want something fancy. A smattering of hot and cold beverages is also available.

The prices here may be a little more than what other ice cream parlors charge, but the atmosphere more than justifies a slightly higher cost. The treats are good, and the cozy setting on the water is absolutely picturesque. Even if you have kids screaming for ice cream,  you can still look out at the water and manage to relax.

If you’re in the area and want a sweet treat, bring the group to Moo La La Ice Cream and Dessert. A premium ice cream parlor in a perfect location, this is ideal for refreshment on a hot afternoon or dessert later in the evening.

A few of our menu favorites at Moo La La Ice Cream and Dessert include:

Dish of Ice Cream
On a hot Florida afternoon, even cold ice cream doesn’t last long before it melts. Get your favorite flavor in a dish, so you can slurp up the melting drips after you finish what does remain solid.

Waffle Cone of Ice Cream
If you want a cone, go for the waffle cone. They’re large, made fresh in-house and possibly even better than the ice cream.

Ice Cream Sundae
What’s better than a scoop or three of ice cream? The same ice cream topped with whipped cream, your favorite topping, and a cherry. There’s a reason why sundaes are so popular.

Fresh Pastry
If you’re lactose intolerant or too cold for ice cream, get one of the pastries instead. They’re all made fresh, and each one is good no matter what the day’s selection includes.

Hot Chocolate
Another alternative to ice cream, a cup of hot chocolate is still sweet but much warmer. You might consider this on off-season evenings when the weather is a little cooler.

Insider Tip:
Closing time here is based on how many people are around. If you’re considering showing up later in the day or evening, call ahead to see whether the parlor will be open. You don’t want to make the drive over only to find out that they’ve shut the door for the day or evening.
