We visited the Slushy Stand for ice cream one afternoon and it was great! I got my favorite, mint chocolate chip. It was so relaxing to sit in the rocking chairs and enjoy our treats! Looks like they have great coffee and other treats too.

Stopped for ice cream on a hot day. A little expensive. Got a crushed sugar cone by a not too pleasant employee. Then she sold me a bottle of iced tea which was half the size of the bottle on display.

Really felt rushed, wrong order, wait staff was rude and felt like they just wanted to get us out of there. For a place that prides themselves on making "slushies" it was a cup of ice with syrup. Do not recommend, especially if you have...More

There is a wide choice of ice cream. The only disappointing about this visit is they didn't have waffle cones.

Fun spot for a return visit. Outdoor atmosphere is good as customers gather on the porch. My wife and I just had sundaes which were OK this time. Seemed like the price has gone up and the quantity down. Not bad but not over the...More

Fnally found decent coffee in Ocracoke! But the best part was sitting in rocking chairs on a soft May morning, drinking our coffee and talking to local people and other tourists as they came and went. Lovely service, too.

I don't know. We travel with a dog, so bikes are not on our agenda.

Whether looking to rent a bike, cooling off with a frosty slushy or sweet treat, or requiring an espresso drink or robust cup of coffee for your afternoon pick-me-up, The Slushy Stand is the choice for you. We offer adult and kids bikes, bikes with baby seats, tagalongs, adult tandems and adult trikes. A bicycle is a great way to feel the slow pace of island life. When you are finished riding, stop in for 20 flavors of ice cream, milkshakes, sundaes, homemade waffle cones and homemade hot fudge, fresh fruit or syrup slushies, soft serve, scoop yogurt and floats. We have a full espresso menu and our regular brew is a very smooth Cuban. We are open seasonally from 7 am to 10 pm, 7 days a week.
