The family stopped by for a treat and it was indeed a treat! The chocolate mint ice cream was spot on and our youngster in the group slurpped up the cotton candy ice cream. Great job and keep it up!

This place by far exceeded our expectations. When trying to eat healthy ice cream does not fall into that category (however, this place DOES have ice cream and I am sure it's just as delicious. Hubby tried it and said it was!) But the Acai...More

We went here one night after dinner for a late night snack, and even though they were fairly busy, we were served very quickly. Lots of variety in their ice cream, and everyone’s orders tasted great.

I usually stay in Corolla and go to the The Juice Jar. This place is equally as good. Tried two açaí bowls and a smoothie. I’ll be back to try ice cream in summer!
