I highly recommend stopping by this ice cream shop and tasting as many flavors as you can. Everything is natural and homemade. They make the waffle cones in front of you so I don't think you can get any fresher than that! I tried their sampler which allows you to choose 4 different flavors (full ice cream scoops) for under... More

The caramel macchiatto milkshake I had was good, but a little foamy--more air than substance at the end. The teenagers manning the store were less than friendly. I probably spend the time or money to go back.

You walk into this cool store from the 100F humid heat, and instantly are lifted off of the floor by the smell of fresh waffle cones. Then you get to choose what kind of fresh-made ice cream you want in your waffle cone. I enjoyed a carmel macchiato and vanilla double scoop. Don't miss this place.

Get the cinnamon caramel oatmeal cookie! Mmmm. It's different and unique but tastes wonderful. Creamsicle is good too.

While out with my granddaughter and her boyfriend yesterday, we wanted some real ice cream to cool down. We stopped here and it was excellent! I had the strawberry ice cream cone and it was so good! It reminded me of the ice cream I used to eat as a young girl. My granddaughter and her boyfriend both had chocolate... More

This is my favorite place to go when I am in Wilmington. All the ice cream is fresh and made in house. They have so many varieties and creative flavors that change all the time. There is plenty of outdoor seating, and the inside is bright and well-decorated. I recommend this place to anyone I know that is going to... More

This little jewel is well known to Wilmington natives and becoming well known to others as well. They have 20-some flavors of homemade ice cream, great service and even provide little samples if you are not sure what to select. My favorite is the Four-Sampler which is a scoop of four types of ice cream. A special tonight was "cream... More

Boombalatti's is a family owned and operated ice cream store with over 25 unique flavors. The service was incredibly friendly, and they let the little girl I was with taste several flavors. I love that they collaborated with Wilmington Brewing to make a Blair's Breakfast Stout ice cream. It had little espresso chips in it as well, which were delicious.... More
