We stopped here on our last night on AMI and my only regret is that we didn't try it sooner! Delicious ice cream and really friendly folks working.

Super home made ice cream. Salted Carmel to die for! Reasonably priced for Island ice cream. Fun walk from the beach to the shop to get ice cream or a sub at the local subway.
