Best Ice Cream and Ambiance in town!

Morton's Moo serves terrific homemade ice cream in a friendly, cozy store. Their coffee drinks and baked goods are delicious, but their ice cream is over-the-top terrific. Nutty Bovine is my favorite, but their ginger, coconut, and dark chocolate are up there, too--and then there's the Bow Chicka... read more

Ok, I don't like ice cream, I LOVE it. I try local ice cream joints wherever I travel and amazingly the best by far of all I have tried (and that's a lot!), is right here in our little town. Fresh ingredients, organic, broad selection of unique flavors and treats. I could go on and on. The staff are absolutely... More

Love this place....locally owned and the best owners and help around! My favorite is the coffee heathbar and it is amazing in their home made waffle cone (with just a hint of cinnamon) Drooling right now! I have won a pint of sorbet on their web page and even got my deck rails when they put new ones on !!!... More

My wife and three kids look forward to Friday-night buffet-style sample nights each month! Although it gets hectic with all of Ellsworth pouring in for some fantastic and creative ice cream, it's absolutely worth it!

We wondered why an ice cream/dessert place was the #1 restaurant on the Trip Advisor list for Ellsworth, and now we know why! Great fresh flavors - and for a chocolaholic like myself, the Fudgian Curmudgeon and the Townie Brownie were tops. Hubby got the Mocha Chip - another over the moon flavor. it's open thursday-saturday for the winter season... More

The fresh made ice cream at Morton's Moo is delicious and will have you coming back for more. This family fun ice cream parlor is #1 in Ellsworth for my kids and I. We will be going there as reward destination for the kids all the time.

Morton's Moo is currently the Number One Restaurant on TripAdvisor for Ellsworth, ME. Without question they serve a variety of delicious, memorable homemade ice creams and ice cream cakes. One of my favorites is the Chocolate Chipotle ice cream.. Our friends rave about the seasonal pumpkin chocolate chip ice cream. It should be noted though, this is an ice cream... More

The owner came out and talked to us and was Very, Very Friendly!!! They had every flavor you could imagine and more. This is a MUST STOP if... More
