Best ice cream EVER!

The ice cream at this store is beyond AMAZING! My father in law loves to make ice cream at home, so I'm familiar with the process and I've had my share of it. I'm sure even he would be impressed. I had 5 mini scoops and each of them was unique and delicious. There was no way I could choose... read more

Nine of us got icecream and it was ok. Some above average some just average. Unfortunately flavor doesn't come close to Calabash Creamery which we are used to! If you want the best of the beach got to go down to calabash!!

Yes, it is true that the ice cream is incredible. It is also true that the man behind the counter (the only person working there apparently) is dour, expressionless, and curt. I'm not sure if he finds any joy in what he's doing or he's just burnt out because it's just him working. Maybe he hates ice cream. Or the... More

My wife, kidsand I go to Boombalatti's pretty frequently and always love the incredible selection of delicious ice creams. At first we were taken aback by the owner's sour disposition, but now we see it as a challenge to try to get him to lighten up...or smile. Sort of like the countless tourists try to do with the guards at... More

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!
