Outer Banks Restaurants

Ice Cream, Desserts & Sweets

For all you visitors with a sweet tooth, you're in luck! Shoot, you could have a mouth full of sweet teeth and you’d still be fine! The Outer Banks is a hot spot for a variety of ice cream, dessert and sweet restaurants that will provide a fun and tasty experience for you and your whole family. One of the things we appreciate about the Outer Banks is its plethora of ice cream stops -- locally owned and national chains, all tempting you with soft serve or hand dipped made up into a seeming endless variety of offerings. Several local frozen yogurt shops have also opened over the past few years that have a huge array of toppings to choose from...you pay by the pound. From Corolla all the way down to Ocracoke, there are plenty of chances to fulfill your craving for a sweet treat. There are also shops that do amazing cakes, pies and donuts. Because weddings are so popular on the Outer Banks, we have more bakers than you’d expect for an area this size, and they can make cakes, cookies, cupcakes or special orders for any occasion. Maybe it's the salty air that has the Outer Banks visitors constantly looking for sweet escapes -- the contrast of salty to sweet? Whatever it is, the Outer Banks ice cream, desserts and sweets we specify here will provide you with multiple options to satisfy your cravings.
