We stopped by here on our walk downtown along the river. They make the waffle cones fresh. The ice cream was delicious. My husband and daughter had the salted caramel, and I had fudgie brownie ice cream. We all loved it. We sampled their fudge as well, and it was really good! We would definitely come back. The employees were... More

We stopped here because of a suggestion from friends. Awesome ice-cream and waffle cones. We didn't try the candy, but it looked amazing.

This is the third Kilwin's that I have been to. The others were in FL and MD. Their ice cream and chocolate has been consistently good! I love the Toasted Coconut Ice Cream. This is a great place to visit on a hot afternoon.

Long line, but worth the wait. The ice cream was delicious. They make their own waffle cones while you wait. But beware. My waffle cone was not properly closed. The crack acted like a chute when the ice cream started to melt and landed all over my shirt. The napkin did little to help. We opted for the two scoops.... More

Can't go to the beach without visiting this little sweet spot! The best place to go for Fudge!! My daughter loves their sugar cones with ice cream too. Loads of choices if your wishes are chocolate covered candies, strawberries or even Carmel dipped apples, yummy!! They've got a pretty good selection for the biggest sweet tooth.

We go here for dessert every time we're in town. The salted caramel is super tasty. The ice cream is on the rich side so it could serve as a meal in itself. Let the waffle cone smell lure you in and ask for samples before you buy!

At first we saw a lot of people outside the store and we thought what kind of a place is this that so many people are waiting for! After waiting in line we saw the amazing variety of ice cream flavours and we couldn't decide which one to order! The waffle cones are fresh and really great. Each of us... More

We loved the chocolate caramel cashew ice cream, fudge brownie ice cream and the chocolate peanut butter fudge. Delicious and in a very cute area of downtown.

Be prepared to wait in long lines during the day time, especially during the summer! However, it is worth the wait. Their ice cream and waffle cones are great! They are located really close to the Riverwalk, so you can grab your ice cream and enjoy the scenic Cape Fear River.
