Our family business needs your help.

On September 28, 2022, Hurricane Ian tore through Southwest Florida, decimating homes and businesses across the region. Sanibel’s Best was not spared. Very few structures survived the storm. Transportation to and from the island has been severely limited due to the Sanibel Causeway Bridge being damaged, leaving the island accessible only by boat. Businesses and residents may not be able to start rebuilding for months, and the island could take years to get back to normal.

Sanibel’s Best has no intention of abandoning Sanibel – and we need your help to rebuild. One day, Sanibel will be a paradise again, and Sanibel’s Best Homemade Ice Cream will be proudly serving desserts to everyone who loves the island as much as we do! Read more…

"Nice little shop and patisserie. Service was very quick and they were following all of the current health guidelines which was comforting to see. I had the dolphin tracks. It was very interesting and very good. Definitely got my money's worth. My wife had a build your own ice cream bowl and was pleased as well. Perfect little shop to stop at if you're looking for a frozen sweet treat."

Everything was just how I thought it would be... it was AMAZING!! Nothing short of a masterpiece from this tiny ice cream parlor. Keep up the great work :)"
