Very tasty, very pricey

I had delicious ice cream there. My fiance and I both enjoyed what we got. I was surprised it was so expensive. The price is the only thing stopping me from giving it a five.

We had a great ice cream and frozen yogurt from Buffy's whilst out exploring Cape Cod. Chatham high street was easy to park on, so was no problem quickly calling in.

Rarely do i really have really poor experiences in restaurant establishments, regardless of my ability to "be picky' most times, but this one deserves a bit of a note. I went to Buffy's this evening with my sister, her boyfriend and my husband. I didn't get any ice cream because I always am shocked at how expensive their ice cream... More

You have to feel bad about spending this much on ice cream because it's silly...but at least it's delicious. Great location in the walkable flow of downtown Chatham, great selection of flavors. You will wait in a line and there is NOT a restroom but there are nice tables in side yard to enjoy your treat.

Buffys is by far the best cape cod ice cream! They make it homemade in the back of the shop (unlike many other places) and offer an unimagineable variety of flavors and toppings. Dont forget to try their milkshakes and smoothies! Enjoy it all on the pink benches out front!

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
