Great atmosphere, everyone we talked to was really nice. It was cool to stick quarters in the ceiling. It was also cool to see the history of it over the previous restaurants that owned the building. The frozen yogurt itself was average quality. It was on par with every other yogurt place I've had. The toppings looked like they were... More

This is a chance to have the best 'build your own' frozen yogurt with a million yummy toppings and donate to a very worthy cause, Surfing for Autism. The owner, Whitney and her husband, Jesse are adorable and true OBX locals, who believe in giving back to their community. When you go in, look at the ceiling packed with quarters,... More

A local told me that this was the place to go for ice cream/frozen yogurt, so we figured it would be good. They did not lie. The place was awesome. When we entered, the staff pleasantly welcomed us and it was packed! We saw the board the provided the instructions and grabbed our cup and started filling it with our... More

A must visit each trip to the OBX, the Spoon is THE FroYo destination. We stopped by after a great BBQ dinner. Gluten Free, Sorbet and Vegan options available. Something for everyone. You must try the Sea Salt Caramel. I did along with a chocolate Vanilla swirl. My son had a mix of cake batter and white chocolate mousse. The... More

Our daughter has a dairy allergy so we're always a little leery of ice cream stops. But we've stopped here numerous times and have never had a problem. The staff is always helpful and caring. We also love Surfin' Spoon's mission to help others and for that reason we are happy to support this local business.

Lots of choices and toppings. The frozen yogurt is GF but the toppings may be cross contaminated. The worker was very kind to open a fresh bag of toppings for us.

Our family just adores the Surfin Spoon. We went at least four times on vacation in the OBX and every time was great. The staff is super friendly and the toppings are always fresh. I'm a vegan so I'm always on the look out for dairy free options and they usually have two to choose from. My kids love the... More

Great atmosphere, sweet back story, delicious flavors and FRESH TOPPINGS ( y'all know that the " famous" chains have yet to figure that out!). Plan on a few more visits ( and more merch) before vacation is over. Even if FroYo isn't your typical cold treat preference like my hubby, give it try, this place won him over and he's... More
