The Hyppo

The Hyppo is a gourmet popsicle shop that makes all of its own products using only fresh, natural ingredients. From fresh basil to ripe mangoes to blazing ghost peppers, you're sure to find flavor combinations here that expand the notion of what an ice pop can be. All pops are gluten free and vegetarian, and about half of our selection is dairy free. We use Florida evaporated cane juice to mildly sweeten the fruits and herbs before their flash-freeze onto a small birch stick. On a hot day in the historic district, this is the pinnacle of flavorful refreshment. Open late.

Saw some folks walking around with different looking popsicles so we checked it out. Oh. My. Gosh. I had the apple and cranberry popsicle with a hint of cinnamon. It was so good I took the time to open up TripAdvisor to review a darn popsicle. Just go here many neat flavors. You will thank me later mmmmmm.

My family and I ate here this evening and it was excellent. I ordered the coconut shrimp with black beans/rice and broccili, my husband had the grilled Mahi mahi with black beans/rice and plantains, and my daughter had the shrimp basket. First of all, my shrimp were super fresh and they were HUGE! They were seasoned to perfection! Our service was wonderful and we had a pretty cool view. I recommend this place to everyone. One more thing, we also had their house margaritas, they were fantastic. Their prices are very reasonable as well!

Reviewed By Dawn R - Naples, Florida

Excellent place and quite popular...get there at opening! Pies were delicious and decadent...I think I gained a couple pounds but worth it! Honey Badger coffee delicious as was the Bad Aussie. Jackaroo pie was different at this location from beach location but each version was great; crusts were amazing. As I asked the guy at the beach location, please open in Naples! Thanks!

Reviewed By Reggie B - Richmond Hill, Georgia

So, after a meal from Uptown Scratch- food truck parked across the street- and Dos- coffee shop paired with UtS as a sit-down- we saw Creme de la Cocoa across the way. The full-length windows display a wedding cake and several women handling delicious looking confections. We HAD to give it a shot...and are we glad we did!

The staff is quite friendly. We ended up ordering the following:
-2 mini Southern Belles (pecan pie, shortbread and vanilla mousse)
-orange amaretto cheesecake
-Florida native (key lime flavored dessert)
-midnight espresso (you can imagine)

It was all fantastic. You should definitely go ahead and plan a meal around these 3 spots, centered so closely it almost seems as if fate brought them together! haha

Stopped by for lunch. I wanted to like it, and the menu was a nice mix of options. The first warning was when the staff announced after our order that the wait for service would be 40 minutes. Really? At a food truck? This just isn't anyone's expectation of this experience. Food was brought to our tables in no less than the full 40 minutes, and was mediocre. Rice and beans was weirdly sweet, and went uneaten. The burger was solid, as was the jerk chicken. But, at this level of expense, I expected better. Overall unimpressed. Just get a sandwich or salad from DOS next door and you'll be better off.

Crave Food Truck

Reviewed By simcookie - Jacksonville, Florida, United States

Stopped here while waiting for our tour of the Distillery. This a great spot for vegetarians/vegan but could use a few more options meat eaters. Lots of options for salads, wraps and rice bowls. Everything was fresh and homemade. Disappointed They were out of the shrimp by the time we stopped by, but I got the chicken instead and it was well seasoned. They have choice of "specials" or you can build you own wrap, salad or bowl a' la' carte. I chose to build my own wrap as a lot of their specials had humus or chickpeas which I personally hate(that's just me) They offer smoothies as well. Prices were reasonable I paid $12 for my wrap and a bottled water and the service was friendly and fast. This a food truck but there is plenty of outdoor covered seating and even a restroom.

Cousteau's Waffle and Milkshake Bar

Reviewed By jwm516 - Atlanta, Georgia

I stop here EVERY time I'm in town and am NEVER disappointed. Their waffles are a meal. Their shakes are amazing as well. You can't go wrong with any of your choices. We had the Belafonte, Waffle Bites, Underpaid Intern with vanilla ice cream, & the Jaguar Shark this trip. The place itself is cozy and I dig their music.
