We stopped here for ice cream and it was great. Loved the birthday cake flavor. The staff could have been a bit friendlier - you could tell the girl working hated her job.

Thank you so much for your review. We do appreciate it. I apologize if you were displeased with the customer service from either Kellie, Jennifer or Kyndal as those where the girls working around the time of your review. They are typically great with customers and as far as I know love working for us. I will speak with each of them and let them know they should be more mindful. Many of our prior reviews mention the great customer service therefore I am a bit surprised you had a bad experience but am glad you brought it to our attention to fix the issue. I am glad you like your ice cream, we do carry ice cream year round! Hope you have a wonderful time at Topsail!

Our family group stopped by on consecutive mornings for the donuts, which are the best in the area. After 9am might be too late.

We bought doughnuts from this location as well as The Fractured Prune. The Daily Grind was cheaper but if you really want some GOOD and FRESH doughnuts buy from The Fractured Prune! We tossed doughnuts from The Daily Grind but never had any to toss from The Fractured Prune.

I was happy when my sister and I stopped here. They have decaf iced coffee already made, chilled, and it is delicious! They also have unsweetened vanilla almond milk which made me really happy! We stop here every year and this year a few times. They also have a large selection of Tazo tea. I Highly recommend. It is at a convenient location, right in the center of surf city.

We stopped here on a hunt for cupcakes for my son's birthday. Unfortunately no cupcakes, but we did discover their out of the world apple fritters. They have donuts, ice cream, and coffee/tea as well but the fritters stand out to me. So much apple!! Yum
