Best homemade ice cream

Took my son there, we both loved it! You get to try a sample before you buy it which I thought was a great idea! Nice treat after a moped ride!

The ice cream here is very good and while being crowed the staff moves fast. But for some reason I couldn't get more then 2 scoops of ice cream. If your store offers many flavors then I feel a customer should be able to order more then 2 scoops at a time. They have nice big sundae glasses but are... More

So good, we went twice. Recommend the cashew caramel crunch and the maple walnut. Very fresh, not too sweet.

With several ice cream shops on the island, the Ice Cream Place is a standout for their good service, outdoor seating area, and of course the best selection of ice cream.

The Ice Cream Place provided us a delicious and refreshing stop mid-day. We had to meet some friends who were departing on the ferry and stopped for ice cream after. The ice cream was delicious and their shady, quiet seating area was a nice respite from the crowds of the town even though it's just a half a block away.... More

Dont be fooled by Aldo's, the place across the street. They try to mis lead you. This place is above exceptional. The only place on Block Island to have dessert.

Picture yourself beachside, in an old movie , circa 1950's-60's. No flashy gimmicks, just good ice cream with a shady place to sit outside and enjoy it. Love the ginger ice cream!

Like the cozy area, they have tables and umbrellas to eat al fresco. Ice cream is ok. Doesn't taste like homemade or artisan. Still a good spot to beat the heat and recharge prior to a ferry ride.
