We love this cute, convenient shop on our way out of wrightsville/wilmington. We stop every time! Great flavors and they are typically seasonal. Had a great pumpkin pie flavor in October... yumm!

The ice cream was very rich, creamy and tasty. The only negative was the guy behind the counter. He wasn't very attentive and seemed like he wanted to be somewhere else. A smile and at least pretending to appreciate the customers would have earned the place a higher mark.

Ice cream is ok, wasn't a fan of the guy behind the counter, not very helpful at all, and seemed to have no patience with my son, when asking questions. I will not be back to many other places with better service.

I love the ice cream at this location. It is delicious and cheap, but what makes it even sweeter is the owner's "I'd rather be dead" attitude towards ice cream, happiness, and human existence. I love eating my delicious ice cream knowing that he despises his existence making it because he works here open to close EVERYDAY. I live in... More

Best homemade ice cream that I have ever had. The line was back to the door when we got there but it moved super quick! Can't wait to go back! Price was reasonable!

The guy behind the counter had the personality of a snail.....seemed like he was annoyed there were... More

How do you open an ice cream shop and treat your customers like you are a troll. We liked the ice cream but the curmudgeon owner ruins the experience. We took our grandson and he was as cute as he could be and the owner looked like he had been sucking lemons all day instead of making ice cream. The... More

What a delicious spot for ice cream! They have such a wide variety of flavors. Whenever I am in the Mayfaire/beach area, I am sure to stop by. My only complaint is one of the employees is extremely rude. He makes it obvious when he isn't in the mood to make something on the menu. We had asked for a... More

This ice cream is homemade and extremely tasty. We were told that the owner travels to farm outside of town for fresh hormone free milk.

I stopped here because of the very unusual name on the front door. I tasted the homemade ice cream and that did it for me!! This is among the best ice cream I have ever tasted. It is expensive and worth every penny. If ice cream is your thing, this is Mecca. It is sweet and delicious and luscious and... More
