Welcome to Geppetto’s Beach Foodies! We are self professed foodies who have always loved to eat, cook and entertain family and friends. Food is a second career for both my husband and myself. After leaving our professional and corporate careers, we purchased a quaint little ice cream business on Sanibel Island in 2007, Pinocchio's Original Italian Ice Cream. Together with our daughter Stephanie, our family grew the brand which has evolved into a Sanibel tradition and destination landmark for over 34 years. Check out our website www.pinocchiosicecream.com
We opened a second business next door in 2012 and named it Geppetto's Beach Foodies, A little market and bakery offering gourmet grab and go beach cuisine which is representative of streetfood you may find in metropolitan areas of NYC, Paris, towns in Tuscany, Italy and other food meccas that have been part of our wonderful global travels. Read about some of the recipes and foods we cherish in our blog www.HUNGRYFOODERATI.COM. Geppetto’s Beach Foodies combines our passion for good food with our love of Sanibel and Captiva Island. Our GBF team is excited to offer our unique menu and make your beach excursion or special event a memorable one!
