We went to Build Your Own Cookie with about 15 people in the afternoon on a Saturday. There was only one person working, and we kept her busy!! You can pick what kind of cookie you want, toppings, and flavor of ice cream. Such a simple concept - but it was the most fun experience of the day! The service... More

I was disappointed this establishment did not offer any gluten free cookie options so we went to the Island Creamery instead. It would not be difficult to offer gluten free cookies or brownies.

We would like to clarify, BYOC does have a gluten free cookie at all times. We offer a Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookie, as well as at least 6 Gluten Free Ice Creams. Not sure how you were informed but if you were mis-informed by any of our Staff, we apologize and also that you had to go to Island... More

We had to stop and try this because I have never seen this before. It was so yummy! I loved the concept and the taste. Cute and creative tables outside with umbrellas too! I couldn't even eat a 3rd of mine and wished I had a way to keep it from melting so I could save it for later. Great... More

I can honestly say this is one of the best desserts I've ever had! The cookies are delicious and warm, the ice cream is tasty, and the options to mix and match are endless. Also, the portion size is huge and cheap! We came back for a second time before we left the island around 10 P.M. and they told... More

Pick a cookie, pick your ice cream and how many scoops and pick a topping or two...it's that simple. It's just a roadside stand; but it's a unique treat. They could have a smoother flow to their operation; but it gets the job done and puts out a nice product. Enjoy!

A great idea and good snack on a hot day. She heats up the cookies before putting the ice cream in between so you get the fresh baked warmth with the cold ice cream in the center.

Saw this place three years ago when I first came, and I've been back every year since! Delicious warm cookies with ice cream and favorite toppings! A MUST for Chincoteague visits
