Very tasty icecream

I liked the fact that it was by the shops which was also within walking distance from the Inn and convenient. However, we thought it was extremely pricey,especially for the small size of the sundae and single scoop in a dish; over $14.00 is a way too much.

Excellent little shop with delicious ice cream, the best in Chatham as far as I'm concerned. Prices a little high compared to home, but not high for the Cape. Clean, good choices, sweet little shop.

We went here this week - had a poor greeting and they were not busy at all (we were the only people there). Ice cream pricing was horrendous for children - no children's size so they got huge scoops for $5.50 each ... Ice cream OK but nothing special.

We went here after having a so-so dinner at the nearby Wild Goose Tavern on Main Street. The ice cream definitely made up for our dinner!! It was the most delicious ice cream we have had our whole trip here! We recommend the chocolate chocolate chunk and the oreo!! So delicious, great staff, outdoor tables to eat at. Perfect!!

Every year for five years my family and I have come back for delicious ice cream. They have a wide selection of ice creams. They also have Sunday's, ice cream sandwiches, flurries, floats, smoothies, brownies, cookies and much more. One of our family's favorites is a yo yo. This is 2 chocolate chip cookies with non fat vanilla frozen yogurt.... More

We tried 3 different flavors, each very creamy, rich with excellent ingredients. The waffle cones were great. But the place is pricey even by Chatham standards. Three single scoop ice creams, 2 waffle cones and a drink, $27. The rum and raisin tasted like rum, ginger had the right level of spiciness and black raspberry was yummy.

Fantastic choice of flavours and everyone we tried was delicious. The hot fudge just made it even better. My favourite? Butter Pecan. Go for it!

Buffys is the nest ice cream in Chatham. Even on busy summer days, you can usually find a picnic table to enjoy your ice cream outside. Also very allergy aware and friendly for our son with peanut allergy.

Sweet little place with delicious ice cream and even better limeades. Well worth it to duck in and sample.

Buffy's is a seasonal ice cream shop, well-located in Chatham's Main Street shopping area. In my opinion, Buffy's has the best ice cream in Chatham, and maybe even on the Cape. The only problem is - despite the hours of operation posted prominently in their front window - this past summer, they were closed more than they were open, which... More
