Very good quality ice cream

I think they said something about Tuesday is delivery day. So if you get there after say, Friday, your selection probably is going to be limited. Otherwise, nice place with nice folks working there. Would definitely go back.

Angelina at Polar Treats makes the best Panini's and Wraps I have ever had. Try the Teriyaki Wrap...yummy! Or build your own Panini...my favorite is Pastrami and Swiss with a bit of butter. Heated up on the Panini grill till the bread is crispy...amazing! Add one of their white chocolate macadamia nut cookies for a sweet treat. They also have... More

Polar treats has wonderful lunch foods...my favorite being the Club Panini. Great staff, great prices and the ice cream is to die for!

Homemade waffle cones and delicious ice creams. For one stop shopping there were cute souvenirs available as well.

We recently ate at Polar Treats for the second time in six years while in port on a cruise ship. Unfortunately, little has changed in six years. The sandwiches and wraps are still very bland and very overpriced, despite an enthusiastic recommendation from a local. My club sandwich on sourdough had zero flavor and the bread tasted more like white... More

This is second time we have visited in 6 months. The coffee, food and ice cream are good. Staff is friendly until you pull out your wifi tablet. They offer free wifi if you purchase food. But the minute you sit down to eat they ask you to step outside if you have your tablet. I can understand the desire... More

We've eaten here several times in the past year. I always order the Thai chicken wrap. My husband usually has the roast beef and chile panini. The portions are good-sized and the ingredients seem fresh. A wrap is about ten bucks, as is a sandwich. It's a 'pay-at-the-counter-get-your-own-drink" sort of place. There are just a couple of tables, but they... More

We stopped her for coffee and ice cream! Both were very good and fresh. We also had the added bonus of free wi-fi! The employees were very kind and met our needs quickly. Nice visit.

We were shocked how this town has gone out of the hands of the local people. Looks like the cruise companies own everything, the businesses are conducted by seasonal people, leaving during winter... This is all about diamonds and tourists stuff, exactly as if you were in the Bahamas ... So we started to look for stores owned by locals... More

The sandwiches were a little pricy, but very large and very tasty -made to order by nice friendly people. Recommended if you're hungry!
