I have been to Boombalati's several times and I can understand the complaints people had about the previous owner. He was not very personable but I found him always to be nice and maybe just overwhelmed. Fast forward to now. Boombalati's has new owners. They are very nice and appreciative of the... read more

I LOVE Ice cream- so let me tell you-- GO here! The sampler is an ingenious idea-- you can get four small scoops in one bowl (or fresh made waffle cone) and it's the perfect size. I recommend the oatmeal cinnamon cookie ice cream-- I also enjoyed the chocolate pie, banana pie (actually tasted like banana and not fake banana... More

So many awesome and creative flavors! Staff was totally patient getting my family's 8-person order. Everyone from the 2 year old to the grandparents left totally happy!

I stopped in to Boombalatti's on a hot day to get some much needed relief from the heat. The huge selection of flavors to choose from made my decision tough but they will let you taste anything in the freezer. I settled on a simple peanut butter-chocolate milk shake that was delicious. The service was friendly and although it was... More

I really like to try local eating establishments when traveling. We were in the mood for a "little something" but not a full meal after a fully afternoon on the sand bar. Saw the reviews for Boombalatti's and gave it a try. We were not disappointed. LOVE the sampler as I don't know how anyone could just try one flavor!... More

I am hard pressed to say this but the ice cream here may have just dethroned Kilwins as my new addiction. Each unique flavor are worth a night out and combined with the great service it is a must visit.

Kids and adults alike loved the from-scratch, made-daily ice cream. We are sure to visit Boombalatti's at least once on our annual trips to the beach!
