Visited on a family trip, first time to Wilmington. The ice cream was delicious and so many choices! But the customer service was amazing. We have a daughter with a peanut allergy and they opened a fresh tub to avoid any cross contamination. When an...ice cream shop is willing to keep others safe while enjoying a yummy treat....it’s amazing.More

Fast and friendly service during Covid mess. We each had a 4 mini scoop sampler. Yum yum! Nice treat at the end of a beautiful beach day of sand digging and kite flying.

We received a gift card to try this place. We were shocked they charge $18.00, yes $18.00 for a QUART of ice cream or $36.00 for a half gallon. We’ve NEVER seen this kind of price for home made ice cream ever...any where. It was...good but not great. We want to support local establishments, especially now with COVID, but this is outrageous.More

We take all feedback seriously so I wanted to thank you for checking us out and taking the time to leave a review. I'm bummed that you left unhappy. Our goal is for every one of our customers to leave our shop already looking forward...More

Such delicious ice cream! These people really got their covid-19 system down pat. Only one group allowed inside at a time but the line goes quickly and is worth the wait. My fiancé and I both got the waffle bowls which are super fresh tasting....He got chocolate fudge brownie ice cream with hot fudge and whipped cream on top (whew, he likes chocolate) and I got the caramel swirl sundae with peanuts. The brownies there are extremely rich and fudgy! They also have a cute little sitting area outside.More

Great ice cream and have their act together as far as COVID-19 is concerned. Social distancing and quick service made for a pleasant experience and the ice cream is fantastic.

Amazing 😉 ice cream. Our favorite ice cream is oatmeal cookie 🍪 it’s amazing. All the ice cream is homemade and delicious.

Best ice cream in Wilmington. You can taste that it’s homemade and fresh. We especially appreciate the vegan and gluten free options.

I love stopping by for a small hot fudge sundae. Usually get the sweet cream or chocolate ice cream with extra hot fudge, whip cream and nuts. Service is always exceptional.

Boobalatti has changed ownership, and the quality of the ice cream and service have definitely has taken a downward slide....not worth the calories any more.

I read the reviews and was excited to go to Boombalatti's. I was disappointed. I would have marked the rating at lower only a sweet young lady allowed me to taste several flavors without any charge. Sorry, I couldn't find anything that really checked my...boxes. I finally settled on a coconut....which had no coconut in it by the way! As I said...not the best. Try Baskin-Robbins next time.More
