“BEST ICE CREAM IN NORTH CAROLINA”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

During our recent visit to Sunset Beach we visited this ice cream shop several times. We found this family owned business to be clean and the employees eager to please. They had a nice variety of flavors to choose from and snowballs too! The homemade waffle cones are awesome, We will surely visit here again next time we are in town.

“Good ice cream”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Small shoppe with standard flavors that you'd find in a grocery store. Cone size varied a lot depending on who scooped them. Competitively priced but there's better ice cream in town.

“A Hometown Ice Cream Shoppe”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Great tasting ice cream, generously overflowing the cone. Many flavors to choose from at a reasonable price. Service is always friendly. We always bring our (10) grandchildren when they are in town.

“There is no such thing as a small scoop of ice cream here.”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

A Calabash staple. Generous portions of great flavors, owner operated, sit on the porch and enjoy your ice cream. A comfortable place to have dessert.
