Yummy! Get the sampler because you will see too many flavors you will want to try. My favorite was cinnamon Carmel oatmeal cookie! A little seating inside and out overall better than any chain brand ice cream out there, worth the short drive if your staying on the beach.

Been going here for years. Visited twice this week and the staff was very friendly. New owners have continued the tradition of great ice cream. Fresh waffle cones, love the key lime. Skip dessert if you have dinner nearby or in Mayfaire and come here. Then go to the bakery in same plaza to pick up breakfast for the morning.

This place is very addictive! All freshly made ice cream fantastic flavors. Now you can see the fresh Ice Cream trend all over the place but i think this place is very special. First the cream used is from Clinton NC so it is local second not only the ice cream is daily made but the flavors are also "homemade"...... More

My husband and I can never agree on ice cream flavors, but always want to split for portion sizes. The sampler gives you 4 small scoops to try. Genius! Ice cream was really good and I thought the girls working there were friendly!

If you can stomach the sour demeanor of the owner/server, then the ice cream at Boombalatti's is worth it. But good luck, after going at different times, on different days, and in different seasons, this guy is Mr. Grinch every time!

Hi, I saw the review you posted yesterday and hope that you haven't had poor service recently. My wife and I purchased the business from the previous owners on June 8th of this year and we have a much different attitude when it comes to our customers. I hope you didn't receive poor service from us yesterday. If you haven't... More

Very good ice cream. Absolutely amazing selection of flavors! Made fresh daily! I found the staff to be very patient and pleasant! They have a wonderful little sampler dish that you can order to enjoy a variety of flavors. Great idea!

I have read some of the reviews that are critical of the owner. There are times that he does not seem particularly pleasant but I have been there enough that I have gotten to know him and he is a very nice person. Regardless… Try the ice cream. Guarantee it will be the best you've ever had! You cannot go... More

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I agree that Kevin, the previous owner, was a great guy but wanted to let you know that he is no longer the owner of the business. My wife and I took over the business on June 8th of this year. I hope you continue to visit the shop!... More
