Perfect little place for breakfast on the island! Bacon Egg and Cheese and a Vanilla Latte and off to a day of adventure.

To salvage a poor lunch experience at Delphinas, we went to the ice cream shop next door. I had the pecan caramel ice cream and my friend had the bourbon caramel ice cream. She said hers was tasteless but I thought mine was quite good....More

The family all enjoyed the ice cream and I had a very delicious chocolate chip cookie. We went back in the morning and I got an iced chai and it was good. (Went back a second time and asked them to make it stronger.)

Stopped for ice cream after dinner. Fresh, homemade ice cream from Wilmington. Many different flavors. Happy faces all around. Service was as sweet as the ice cream.

Great chocolate peanut butter ice cream- with wafers chopped up in the batter. Two single scoops- $9- not cheap- but really good!

Tried several flavors (not just me - went with a group!), and they were all tasty. Got mixed reviews about the milkshakes, so maybe stick with the regular scoops. But definitely worth the journey.

Our family went here every day during our BHI trip this summer. The friendly staff makes great drinks in the morning and the excellent ice cream is a great way to finish the day.

Since the Market Cafe no longer offers espresso drinks, and Sandpiper does, we find ourselves riding to the harbor almost daily. Our grandchildren and the hundreds of other visitors loved the Old Baldy Ice Cream so much that it was all gone before our week...More
