We love byoc. Friendly people and delicious dessert. We always stop by when we visit the island. The portions are huge and easily shared.

Highly recommend. We had the fudge cookie with honey roasted peanut butter ice cream covered in hot fudge. It was so decadent and wonderful. I'm ashamed to admit we went back two days in a row.

We loved this place. Went twice while on vacation the week of the pony swim. Everyone kept asking if we preferred the Creamery or Mr. Whippee's, but we preferred this place over both of those!

Build Your Own Cookie is a cool little food truck type vendor with a unique touch. You pick your cookie, your ice cream flavor, and your toppings. I keep it simple and got a cake batter sugar cookie topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream,...More
