Iconic summer tradition

Some of the best homemade ice cream you will ever have. Hardest decision will be what flavor to get as they have so many including all the tried and true traditional ones. Don't let the line scare you away as they have lots of "scoopers "and it really moves fast.

I love ice cream. Can have it every day. This was ok. Expensive and THEY DONT HAVE ANY SPRINKLES! Who doesn't have sprinkles! Geesh! I had only $18 and its cash only. We could only afford 3 single cups and then had $6 left over for a shake. We spent the same amount elsewhere and each got 2 scoops. Kids... More

The perfect place to end a summer night in Cape Cod! Lots of flavors and the brownies are good too! The place is open late and our Bed and Breakfast was very near, so we were able to take a nice walk as we ate the ice cream and enjoyed the full moon.

excellent place for a home made ice cream. lots of flavors -- most of them are the traditional ones you see other places but everything we had was well-made and tasted great. the setting is a old-style classic ice cream parlor....reminded me of an old diner. we went on a thursday night in august and it wasn't crowded at all...

Love this place and everyone we bring here falls in love too. Fresh, homemade ice cream with seasonal flavors (can't get peach before July!) and classics. Their mint chip is a pink peppermint chocilate chip - delicious twist on the usual. Fruit flavored all wonderful because, again, made from fresh fruit not extracts and chemicals. And their hot fudge is... More

Great homemade ice cream. The portions are not huge but that is probably because it is homemade and not cheapo junk. Not a lot of indoor seating. The service was great as I have a nut allergy and they were overly helpful and cautious to use a new scooper on a fresh batch from the back. Went back again during... More

The ice cream is delicious - but it's always crowded. It's also cash only. We usually order pints and a half pint of hot fudge and bring it back to the house and enjoy it there. I've never found another ice cream like their vanilla chai, so delicious!

Small town ice cream place with big flavors. I really wanted a flavor where I couldn't get anywhere else and the cantaloupe ice cream was out of this world. I also got the peach which was good but over powered by the cantaloupe. The texture of the ice cream was very pleasant too. They use fresh ingredients and you really... More

This place is legendary to natives. They think the ice cream is the best on the planet. It is good, but is ain't the best. It's expensive too.

This ice cream shop is a classic. From their malted shakes to their sundaes, you can't go wrong. Only tip, go on a weekday, the weekends are nuts and the lines are long.
