This is great after a hot day on the beach. Fun flavors of Hawaiin shaved ice. Interesting flavor combinations. No indoor seating but picnic tables are available outside.

We wanted something refreshing and decided to try this place. It was a fun place to chill out. There were many flavors to choose from and some had fun names that made it even harder to pick one. There is definitely a flavor for everyone. All four of us enjoyed the flavors we picked. We were there on July 3... More

My kids love this place. I believe they had a snowball every night on our week's vacation in the OBX. Fave flavors--Little Mermaid, Tiger's Blood, Creamsicle, Jolly Rancher. They will mix whatever flavors you want. The shaved ice is good and not packed like a lot of snow cones and they are generous with the syrups. A MUST when visiting... More

We wanted a sweet but nothing too heavy so decided to stop here. It was so good & so many things to pick from! I love all of the different flavors. I got the candy apple flavor & it was delish! My son got the raspberry with the ice cream in the middle & he loved his too!

I live on the Outer Banks and am so excited that we finally have decent snowballs. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, snowballs have always been a summer favorite with my family. Lauren has got it right with great flavors including a Baltimore favorite, egg custard and the marshmallow topping it to die for!!

Service was fast & friendly. We stopped in for a wild cherry and lime shaved ice. We were not disappointed! We have had others and this place definitely offers the best selection & quality. Prices are very reasonable.They offer a selection of ice cream as well. A great way to cool off on a hot day at the OBX!

I love it here! I recently had the pleasure to meet the owner herself. I have been coming to the shop since 2014 and will continue to do so. I love the flavors and I believe Lauren has the best Snow Cones on the island. The service is outstanding and the staff are knowledgeable about their products. I will continue... More
