The Slushy Stand, corporately known as Paradise Found Inc., has existed on the island of Ocracoke since 1974. Originally The Stand was a plywood shack where the start of the day was a matter of lifting the hinged front plywood panel. My first year in The Slushy Stand business was the last year of the shack. Today, we operate out of an air-conditioned building surrounded by a wrap-around porch.  After a little exercise on one of our rental bikes, feel free to indulge in a sweet treat and enjoy our front porch. The Slushy Stand is the perfect place for refreshment and a relaxing spot to indulge your craving for sweets or coffee. Stop in and try one of 21 flavors of ice cream, slushies, milkshakes, floats, cold drinks and smoothies. Try breakfast items like muffins and bagels to go along with the freshly ground regular brew, a very smooth but robust Cuban coffee. Espresso, cappuccino or lattes are additional options. With free WiFi and a morning newspaper, this is a great place to start the day. Relax on the porch rocking chairs and watch the world go by. Bike rentals are available by the hour, day or week.
