What we liked: I thought that this place would be just another ice cream stand, but when I tasted the custard, I realized I was wrong, it tasted fabulous. I would definitely move this up into my top 5 sweet treats in Durham. I had the special feature of the day which was a Carolina Concrete of vanilla custard with cherries and chocolate mixed in. I loved it! Everything just tasted homemade and unique. In addition, while they didn't have indoor seating, their patio was fairly toddler friendly. It has a big brick fence almost completely surrounding it so even though there's a parking lot nearby, you can let your toddler have a little running room. They also have a fountain in the middle of the patio which can provide endless entertainment.
I also really liked its location. I've been looking for some place to head after a trip to the Museum of Life and Science. This is only minutes away, and it has a Chick-Fil-A next door for a quick bite before the custard. I think the museum, Chick-Fil-A, and Goodberry's to finish it off sounds like a great outing! Our reader that tipped us off about Goodberry's also mentioned that it can be combined with a trip to the nearby Lowes.
What we would change: The negative is that there's nowhere inside that you can sit, so you would have to take your custard to-go if there was inclement weather. However, they do sell pints for just that purpose.
Website and other important information: The Goodberry's in Durham is located off of N. Roxboro near the intersection with Carver.
