My grand children celebrated one birthday (seven years old) here by having fun ordering their selections of one cookie, one flavor ice cream and one topping. The child's size was exactly the right portion for them. The server was very friendly, and the food was good.

Why is this build your own cookie concept not popular everywhere? How could anyone not love a freshly baked cookie topped with ice cream and other sundae toppings? A great choice for dessert. The folks running this place are super friendly and nice, and bake their own cookies. A lovely twist on dessert.

Wonderful sized cookie with great ice cream combo. Hot fudge and sprinkles were added. Comes in a take-away plastic so easy transport.

Sweet employees. Patient ladies. This place isn't really comparable to other ice cream shops on the island. It's in a category all it's own. It's worth a visit. Pick a cookie, then pick an ice cream, last pick your topping.

At first glance, you think it's a little pricey for a cookie, but the cookies are fresh and soft, the ice cream and toppings are generous, well worth it compared to a sundae or a dessert elsewhere. The perfect combination when you want something sweet. Modest outdoor seating, plan to take-away on a hot day.

Tried BYOC for the first time after seeing it for years on our annual vacation. Have not been anywhere else since! The cookie / ice cream combination is amazing, there many other options to choose from. The ice cream is delicious!

I think we drove past this place last year. Our mistake! This is a wonderful little food truck. The basic principal is pick a cookie/ pick an ice cream (or two)/ pick a topping (or two), the cookies are soft warm and fresh with big heaping scoops of ice cream and generous toppings. Its not small servings. We went after... More
