Cool Treats!

Incredible homemade ice cream in an eclectic little shop with friendly staff. If you are in town for one of their tastings....don't miss it...it's awesome! All the ice cream you can eat for $6. Oh, and the hot chocolate and ice cream cakes are pretty spectacular too!

Have known the Family for years, the Moo has gotten better and better! Hard to describe as a 'restaurant' - more of an ice cream parlor.

Great home-made icecream! Gluten free and dairy free options available. The dulce de leche icecream is one of my favorites. Locally owned and operated. Our family go to place for desert after a dinner out on the the town.

This is an ice cream parlor ranked high on Trip Advisor and was featured on a PBS special about Maine ice cream stores. I had coffee/heath bar. Tasty but way short of QT’s lobster ice cream in Wiscasset. Maine has LOTS of ice cream spots; this one is slightly off US1/1A. Other desserts were tempting.

Stopped by on our way back from Bar Harbor. They had a nice selection of homemade flavors. There are a few tables inside to eat at but it was such a beautiful summer day that we went outside on the porch which had several tables and chairs. Try the wild Maine blueberry ice cream, it's delicious, so are the other... More

Hubby had blueberry and cherry chip. No complaints here!! Go to Morton's Moo. A little more expensive than the other two in town but worth it!! There are tables inside and outside to enjoy your...

We loved the Nutty Bovine: a perfect mix of chocolate, coconut, choc chips and chopped almonds. It was so good that we went back the next day for a pint. The prices were reasonable and the staff knowledgable. I wish there was one closer to the southern Maine area.

Great homemade ice cream with a few more unusual flavors as well as typical favorites. There's indoor seating or grab a table outside on the porch.
