“Early Morning coffee, made to order with a smile.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

The owner makes the coffee. While the shop makes homemade ice cream and chocolates (which smell Devine), the shop opens early for the coffee crowd. But that is just it,, no crowd. We had lattes, they were prepared by the owner who has been running her shop for 10 years. She chatted with us on her love of the area; it made the drinks taste that much sweeter. we will be back.

“Fantastic ice cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

The ice cream was delicious although a little on the pricey side. The only downside to this trip was that there's very little seating, so we all had to eat our ice cream standing up outside while it melted quickly. Very difficult with a young child!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Make sure you visit Bucks! We went twice on our trip. Long line, but it moves quickly. First night we all had the homemade dipped ice cream. Even their plain vanilla was excellent. Second trip, my daughter got their favor blaster which was soft serve ice cream with swirl of flavor around it. Very pretty and tasty too.

“Great banana ice cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Lots of great flavors to choose from. I wasn't in my usually chocolatey-peanut butter mood so I opted for the banana ice cream in a waffle cone. I love anything banana flavored and the ice cream was a great cho

“Outstanding homemade ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

They have awesome ice cream. I highly recommend you stop here if you are down at the OBX. It's a little pricey but well worth the stop and the money. You can get chain ice cream any day. This is fresh homemade ice cream.
