Nu-Quality Ice Cream

Serving Northeast North Carolina since the 1950’s!

Hello, and Welcome to Nu-Quality Ice Cream!

Nu-Quality is a family-owned ice cream shop, originating in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. We have had the pleasure of serving Northeast North Carolina for over sixty years, and are excited for our new Southern Shores location on the Outer Banks! With our classic walk-up windows and the “fabulous fifties” music playing outside, we have created a family-friendly atmosphere, that is sure to take you back to the good old days. Oh, and don’t forget the sweet smell of fresh waffle cones being baked every day!
