Had to have a milk shake and this is the spot in Atlantic Beach. Thought it was on the pricey side but the taste and quantity of ice cream made it a real bargain. Plenty of selections for the whole family and quick, friendly service.

Reminds me of Kilwin's in Blowing Rock, NC! The sweet smell just draws you in. We had milkshakes and everyone wanted more. Has won many awards for its ice cream and fudge.

I couldn't believe there were only two options for ice cream at Atlantic beach. This was definitely a great place with awesome ice cream choices, homemade fudge, and nostalgic candies. This is a must!

We always stop here during our trip. I'm a bit of an ice cream snob so I skip the Hershey's ice cream and go for the bulk candy. The fudge looked fresh & delicious and I think we will try it next time.

This place has so many choices that when you see them all arrayed in the cases it can be a bit overwhelming. We learned something from our several visits there over a week-long vacation: There are no bad flavors. Sampling is allowed, so go ahead...More
