Cute little shack with a miniature golf as a added plus! They offer many different toppings and have soft and hand dipped ice cream. There is also a gift shop of sorts - small handmade shell jewelery and picture frames to name a few.

Cute little establishment with friendly, cheerful employees. Delicious sundaes, milkshakes, and ice cream. Cute little gift shop that is reasonably priced. Make sure you try the mini golf!

What can I say? I love sweets and you can't go wrong after a long day on the beach when dinner is still hours ahead. You can also mini golf here, just wear bug spray!!

This place is great! I love the cappuccino chip. It taste like those chocolate covered expresso beans!

It is a family tradition now to have ice cream at least one night any time we vacation on the Outer Banks. The ice cream is made there, and is the best custard ever. There are enough flavors to please pretty much anyone, and it can be served up in cups, cones or various sundaes. What a great place!!

We had custard here a few times on our vacation and it is very good! We golfed once and that was fun, but could use some updating.
