We rode all over Duck with our bikes and then decided to grab coffee and walk along the boardwalk. Sunset Coffee was great. I got a coconut latte and really enjoyed it!

Small sign saying cash only. Seems shady that in 2016 you don't take credit cards. I'm sure they have enough profit to cover the 2-3% transaction fees... or just have a minimum charge. Had to walk 10 minutes down the road with a melting ice cream cone while i left my wife and kids behind to hit an ATM so... More

When we arrived at sunset ice cream the line was frighteningly long, but it moves fast and the ice cream is worth it! Cash only, and available flavored are posted on a chalkboard you'll see while in line. Be ready w your order and help keep it moving quickly. Well worth the wait.

Place is always packed by worth the wait. Ice cream flavors a have their own menu long chalk board with light surrounding, which can be confusing to customers as they are looking at the menu over the window. Hard working scoopers who work great under tourist and local summer season.

Stopped here for a quick after dinner dessert. The single scoop hard serve ice cream flavors are great. The Charlie Brown milkshake was awesome. A great place to stop for a frozen treat.

Long lines, rude workers and average ice cream. The sunset view and the other shops made this trip (which we specifically made for Sunset & Ice cream) worth it. However, the actual ice cream shop was nothing special.

Had ice cream that was very average... not "homemade" and not the best. Not sure of the brand. Nice view over the water. It was very crowded (3:00) when we were there.

Recommendation from a friend, so I had to go. They have a great variety of flavors. I tried the Blueberry Pie single scoop cone. It was DIVINE!!! It is in a great location with an amazing view. Get your ice cream and enjoy the sunset!! :-D
