What a wonderful little find! The owners are a sweet couple who just love what they do! Very hospitable, warm, funny and welcoming. The ice cream was great and they were very generous with our little ones! They have a large fish tank with several types of fish. They feed them at 7pm. Great entertainment for kids (and adults).

Stop in after a long day at the beach. The flavors are excellent, atmosphere super friendly. Admire the large salt water fish tank and the decor of this nice little shop.

Hands down, the best. We tried about 6 flavors. I got the fried ice cream which I thought was really great...until I tried my husband's salted caramel. OMG, I have never had anything like it. And they have cute signs for sell. We got one that said quityerbellyackin. My husband couldnt stop laughing. The Dad and Daughter combo working there... More

There are many ice cream places to visit but this on stands out for its friendly staff. It's run by a father and daughter and the ice cream is great, loads of flavours and toppings to choose from. We took the ice cream to the beach to watch the sunset. The shop also sells a few gifts and chocolates. They... More

I have not had ice cream for a while because I can't eat sugar anymore. I went in this store and they had a Black Cherry sugar free ice cream. I ordered it and didn't think it could taste too good, being sugar free. Boy, was I mistaken. This ice cream made me happy. The taste is so good. I... More

So after a hot day of fishing, shopping and walking the beach we found this place near our beach rental. The gentleman that runs the place is very personable. There's a great checker's game with sand dollars and sea shells. Plenty of varieties of flavors and soft serve also. The people in front of us all got milkshakes because of... More
