“yummy coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

They have amazing coffee!!! Better than Starbucks. Their ice cream looked really good too, just wasn't hungry for it then. They had a nice selection of candies, ice cream, and other sweet treats to choose from. Will most definitely stop in for another coffee before I go back to Ohio.

“A must try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in here after doing some walking around timbuck II shopping center. This place is amazing. I had the peanut butter and cookies. It was Oreos with peanut butter. I had never had this combination before and it was great. My wife had a sundae and they fill them up to the gills. I will be going back the next time I am in town.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We visited this store twice - once for chocolates and once for ice cream. The chocolates are outstanding and they have such a variety it's hard to choose which ones to get. I'd suggest the chocolate covered caramels and the chocolate marshmallow caramels....FANTASTIC! The ice cream was very good as well. We were a little shocked at the price, $14 for 2 ice cream sundaes...but felt we got a great deal when they handed the cups over. It was rather large and they even served it with a drink umbrella. I'd suggest the peanutbutter hot fudge sundae and can't wait to go back next year for another.

“Decent Ice Cream at a Premium”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Ice Cream is good. I'd prefer Ben and Jerrys for the prices this place is charging. But, if you are need of some fresh ice cream on OBX, you can give this place a try. There is a DQ across the street if you feel so inclined.

“Excellent Ice Cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is the only real unique ice cream place out in Corolla. Homemade ice cream, tons of flavors to choose from, and lots of other interesting candies and other items. However, it's packed, every night in the summer. The line moves well so don't let that discourage you.. Even when the line is out the door, which happens often, it moves pretty well...but it still makes it a little stressful, so you pretty much go in and out, and grab a bench or something in Tim Buck II to eat your ice cream.

A regular stop for us during our annual OBX week. Good, good ice cream.
