Not that the interior is dated; it isn't. Nothing fancy, but a great selection of treats, basic good coffees and a plesant atmosphere. Nice stop to cool down, or for a snack between meals. I wonder how many generations kids had a Summer job dipping ice cream here?

We went there both nights on BI. They have a great selection of ice cream and the staff was very nice. Seems like most of the young employess on BI are from Eastern Europe. They are all very polite and speak very good English.

We were very impressed with the quality of the ice cream, the many Flavors from which to choose, and the very friendly service. It was especially nice that there was a patio to enjoy our late night dessert.

Our taxi driver insisted that we go here for ice cream and we were excited to try it. Unfortunately it was hotter than heck waiting in the long line in the basement with two kids who wanted ice cream badly. The ice cream itself was pretty bland (we had peppermint patty, butter pecan, and cotton candy). The worst part was... More

It's difficult to be impartial to BI Ice Cream - my boys had their first job here selling scoops of ice cream to the tourists! It is the best place on the island though for local spirit and fun with the creamy rich taste of good ice cream. They have a wonderful selection of baked goods too. The lemon bars... More

Nice ice cream, in a convenient walking location. I had the Walking Sundae, and it was huge!! There is a small seating area inside, and some tables with umbrellas outside. The line is long, but don't be discouraged...it moves fast!

We come to BI every year for a Weekend and every night after Dinner we take a walk here for the best IceCream you can find! Their Hot Fudge Sundae is the best on the Island, with the Fudge and Whipped Cream also being freshly homemade!! Long lines move very quickly and the Employees are always terrific!! A must try!
