A helpful reader alerted us to this ice cream stand, which was very useful because it’s not the kind of place we otherwise would have happened upon. It is out on Hwy 98, close to Wake County (5220 Wake Forest Hwy), but definitely worth the trip.
First and foremost, this place is cute. I recommend taking a date here; anyone who doesn’t have a heart of stone would have to fall for the country setting, friendly man in a cheerful little booth, and picnic table area for eating.
To top it off, the ice cream is also delicious. They have chocolate, vanilla, or swirl, and a variety of toppings. We got a small with strawberries, whipped cream and cherries (he gave us two because he guessed we’d be sharing–aw!) for $2.25. As soon as blueberries from the adjacent farm are ripe, they’ll be available as a topping as well.
The stand is only open during the summer, and only in the evening (4 – 9:30pm Sat, weekdays 6:30 – 9:30pm). You can pick your own blueberries as well, starting in late June.
