Good quality Ice Cream. And the service is normally very friendly and quick. It is also right in downtown Wilmington by the Water front.

Kilwin's, located at the emd of market street behind Klienfelds, is an amazing and wonderful place. You can smell the sugar and waffle cones before you even get close to the door. A stunning variety of fudges, candy apples, and other confections are a delight to all your senses. From the decor to the sights, sounds, and smells it is... More

Love that they give you samples of their homemade ice cream. Many flavors to choose from. If you don't mind spending close to $5 for a scoop of ice cream it was great. They have homemade waffle cones if you want. We also had one of their caramel apples which was delicious

We went to Wilmington for a day and stopped in when we walked past. They were busy but took care of everyone with great customer service. We had a cone with cake batter and the turtle cheesecake it was great.

We can see why Kilvin's has been in business so many years! Their homemade waffle cones and ice cream are to die for. We also bought homemade fudge to take home with us. We understand from a friend who had previously visited that we also should have bought the homemade caramel apples. Next time for sure!!!

If you're looking for something sweet, this is the place to be... ice cream and waffle cones, fudge and candy .. the line was out the door but moved quickly because there are plenty of people working, which is a plus!
