Best ice cream ever!!

We found this homemade ice cream place a few years ago and since then have never gone anywhere else! Absolutley the BEST coffee ice cream in Maine :) Coffee Oreo is delicious. The staff are always pleasant and the prices are fair too.

Have been to Martel's several times with our family in Saco...very good ice cream and very efficient staff. It can get crowded on a hot summer's day, but the system in Martel's really works. My favorite is the coffee ice cream and other family members love the chocolate chip and the maple walnut...but they have some other very interesting flavors... More

Everyone is an ice cream expert and everyone has their own favorite place, but for us its Martels for many years now because their ice cream is simply the best. We rarely ever eat ice cream back home, just so when we visit Maine we can pig out at Martels The ice cream is creamy and flavorful, and home made,... More

Martel's is one of our favorite ice cream places. They create delicious flavor combinations. The mini golf course out back is pretty fun too!

Have been going to Martel's for many years since discovering their ice cream. Best flavored and always changing special flavors, great price for the size and super service! They use real fruit and you can taste the authentic flavors in addition to great sweets. A don't miss for ice cream!

Staff was helpful and pleasant. The line moved quickly. Prices were comparable to other ice cream places in the area. But the ice cream was soft. Mind you we ordered "hard serve" cones. I had ordered some type of frozen yogurt flavor - but that was the problem - it was so unmemorable I can't remember the name or even... More

The best of the best, Martel ' s ice cream is rich and creamy and the flavors are always creative and delicious. My husband loves the milky way, and my favorite is the fluffernutter.We both love the coconut chip. The owner is friendly and the service is always good.
