Great old fashioned ice cream shop

Lots of flavors in a lovely old fashioned ice cream shop. There are benches to sit outside and enjoy the spoils too. I can recommend the mint oreo.

Melting fast but very yummy, Buffy's offers lots of treats like lemon and lime Rickey's. The prices are summer high but when in Rome as the saying goes... Enjoy, nonetheless...

The ice cream is said to be made in house. My husband got coffee heath bar and my daughter got Vanilla Black Cherry Chip. My daughter's had full halves of black cherries throughout. The each got a single scoop for a little over $10. It's very pricy but the ice cream was yummy.

After a Chatham A's game in July 2015, my husband, teenage son and I stopped at Buffy's for a late night snack. The ice cream was delicious with some very unique flavors. My husband got a ginger ice cream that he relished.

There was a long line outside and we entered randomly. The staff were efficient and friendly. We got the coconut and peach ice cream along with the lime rickey. There was a note saying, 'minimum $10 purchase for credit cards'. The lime rickey was average but the coconut ice cream was the best I've ever had. I'd definitely go there... More

First of all this place is cute in a cute town! Perfect after dinner spot if you save any room after all the great food in town! The line went quickly, the service is friendly, the ice cream is delicious, and the seating to the side is easy. What more could you want on vacation? Perfect night cap!

Went for ice cream. Service is attentive. Ice cream is very good. The best anywhere in New England? Well not compared to Richardson's dairy north of Boston and not truly memorable like mt desert ice cream in Bar Harbor(- our family is still talking about mt desert ice cream!).

We all love Buffy's...great flavor range, and great for family members who love frozen yogurt, frappes, ice cream sundaes, and plain old fashioned ice cream cones. We love the coffee oreo, salted caramel, and mint chip especially. And bonus that the sprinkles are free (and come in chocolate, rainbow, and hot pink!). Our favorite ice cream spot in Chatham.

Best place for delicious ice cream! Open early and close late so fits into our beach schedule. My favorite is red raspberry fudge. Little expensive & just started accepting credit cards.

Great location in the middle of the town. Really friendly staff - top notch. The servings are a good size and quality. But a bit on the pricey side. Still, it doesn't stop the queues forming 😄
