Best coffee ice cream I’ve ever had! Super fresh, staff was friendly and fast. Watermelon and blueberry ice creams were also fantastic. Can tell it’s made with real fruit. Delicious!

Fresh delivered 150 cups of ice cream in the evening after a school banquet event. They delivered on time and brought the ice cream in bags so it stayed very cold for several hours. The ice cream was a HUGE HIT! It was a warm...evening and the student loved the treat. Some had never had Fresh ice cream and many thought it was the best they ever had. They provided a dairy-free option that was greatly appreciated too! Thank you Fresh!More

Fresh is the best! They have excellent homemade ice cream and have some non dairy and sugar free items as well. Best place to go to cool off on our hot summer days or any time of the year!

Ice cream in the summer always hits the spot, and this place has lots to choose — a lot of flavors, milkshakes, sundaes, etc. The service is great — friendly staff and service with a smile — they accommodate food allergies. When we arrived, there...were several people in a queue; so you know it’s going to be good when people are willing to suffer standing in the heat. It’s a happy place — it was lovely to see families together enjoying the summer treat. And every single person had a smile on his/her face after he/she received the ice cream.More

Stopped here after dinner downtown, on our way back to our hotel in the suburbs. This place was a gem to find - outstanding ice cream and big servings. If you are in the area, stop by and try it!

I liked the midnight brownie. No shortage of brownies which is key to a brownie ice cream. My wife had banana pudding and didn’t like it or even finish it. Said it tasted like banana flavoring. It did have some wafers in it but don’t...think any bananasMore

As soon as our plane set down in NC our granddaughter started talking up this ice cream stand. When we finally drove there I was surprised to see the long line of folks waiting to be served. After tasting the ice cream I understood why....This is the best ice cream I have ever tasted, and I've eaten many a cone and dish of homemade. It is a funky little roadside store. Ice cream flavors are posted above the order window and there are so many to select from. Place your order at the window and pick it up at another window around the corner. There are a few tables and chairs to sit on while enjoying your treat. Yummy.More

We stopped here on our way back to the hotel. When we go on vacation/business trips we like to try out homemade ice cream places. This place did not disappoint. We loved the samples we got (chocolate peanut butter cup and birthday cake, both were...delicious and would have been great choices to get). We both really enjoy trying out cookie doughs and mint chocolate chip so we got one of the "flavors of the month" which was super chunk cookie dough (superrrrr yummy) and white mint chip (this one was yummy as well). Overall, I would get all of them again but a definite preference for the cookie dough and peanut butter ones!! I would try out other flavors as well; I don't think we could go wrong with any of them! We will be back next time we are in town. Friendly staff as well!More
