I love ice cream and I was assuming (which you know what the means) that this creamery made their own ice cream. This is not the case. It is Hersey Ice Cream which was consumable. There was some fudge and chocolates in the display case. You can order food their as well. I did smell a funky odor, but I... More

What a wonderful place. The ice cream selection is varied, the shop is kept so clean you feel comfortable ordering anything and the gentleman the runs the shop is careful to get you your order quickly and with lots of good conversation!

We dropped by for an ice cream one night and the whole thing was a bit surreal. There wasn't a single other person there - which is not, in itself, a big deal - but the whole place just felt deserted (no pun intended). There were two guys behind the counter and one of them encouraged us to be happy... More

If it's ice cream you want, don't miss the Creamery. Locally owned and run, it is a must stop weather you want a sundae, malt, or cone. Every variety of ice cream you could want and pleasantly served! I go every year for a banana split on my birthday and I'm never disappointed! You won't be either!

We stopped here for Ice cream. My kids loved the ice cream clown sundae. They have two tables to eat inside and a few picnic tables outside. It was a very nice treat.

We decided to stop and try this place but would have never even noticed it if it was not for the poor girl in the ice cream costume out front! Very small ... Indoor and outdoor seating. People coming in and out all seemed to be local and know each other. Decent sized servings and good prices! They also had... More

Caramel cheesecake ice cream was very tasty on a hot day. Large portion sizes and the staff were very friendly - excellent customer service. A great stop on any visit to Manteo.
