Joe’s Eats & Sweets in Bradenton Beach

If the bright & fun colors of the building don’t get your attention, then the tasty treats inside sure will. Joe’s Eats & Sweets is an adorable stop in Bradenton Beach that will have your taste buds happy you stopped by.  Homemade ice cream, sundaes, and fudge is what they specialize in. The selection of ice cream flavors include classics like chocolate, strawberry, and mint chip, but they also have key lime cheesecake, cotton candy and nerds, pineapple coconut, and even almond turtle fudge. And the list goes on!

Sundae options include over 15 different, delicious concoctions. Two of my favorites are the Coffee Lovers Dream, which contains coffee ice cream, of course, topped with coffee syrup, whipped cream (the real stuff), and a cherry. My second favorite Brownie Sundae, mainly because it comes with a homemade walnut brownie.
End your evening out with a stop here after dinner on Bridge Street, or come over after a day at the beach.
