Loved this little place. Everyone was pleasant and the ice-cream incredible!!!! This place was right in the middle of town. We actually passed two ice cream places before this. The locals said this was the best and they were right

Why anyone thinks it is normal to spend $30 dollars for four people to have ice cream is beyond me. I like the staff. The ice cream was good. The cost was just a little beyond ridiculous.

This is a must stop after you finish walking the stores on the main strip in Chatham or as a delicious complement to the Squire. It is delicious, run by what appears to be a local family/staff, and has quite the variety for such a small place. There was always a bit of a line BUT that is less of... More

Nice local ice cream shop. A few fresh flavors - I tried Ginger and it was very yummy. Also, coffee Heath Bar was good!

I can feel myself getting fat just thinking about this place. Excellent ice cream on a warm August evening on Cape Cod - I can't wait.

A trip to Chatham is never complete until we've been to Buffy's... family run business that serves smiles with its delicious ice cream. One of our favorite things!

Very rich and creamy home made ice cream on Main street. We went for a sundae with vanilla and cherry ice cream. Real, significant chunks of cherries were in the ice cream and plenty of hot fudge added to this great treat!

We visit Buffy's every year - it's a must-do on our list no matter how short our trips may be. We stay in Harwich, but make sure to head to Chatham just to get ice cream at Buffy's at least once. I found my favorite flavor of all time that I look forward to all year long - red raspberry... More

We stopped at Buffys, fully prepared for the sticker shock of homemade ice cream in Chatham. The flavor was totally worth it. We ordered 4 cones of various flavors, and no one was disappointed. In fact, we all liked each other's flavors (when we shared licks)! What a great little joint - next time though, we'd take up seats on... More
