Being that Buffy's is the only place serving homemade ice cream in Chatham (or so it claims), I definitely expected more. Don't get me wrong...it's good, but it is definitely nothing special and not deserving of the long line that forms every night in the summer.

While there was a long line, the wait was definitely worth it. The chocolate chocolate chip ice cream was creamy and didn't have any artificial taste to it. The only negative was that it was so good that I finished it so quickly. While the prices aren't inexpensive, you know what you're getting in a touristy area. Definitely worth a... More

If I had a desire to own an ice cream shop, I'd open one in Chatham to compete with Buffy's. This main street shop is adorable and offers tasty ice cream in a variety of flavors. If you go at night, the line is ridiculous. It smells like yummy waffle cones and other delicious stuff in there. I would rate... More

Perfect family ice cream place. Fun flavors, from traditional to unusual. I was a bit jealous of my husband's red raspberry fudge until I tried the Almond Joy... which has dark chocolate instead of milk -- to my delight -- unlike the candy bar. Delish

Absolutely yummee. Great flavours but long queues says it all. Huge scoops at great prices for Cape cod. Need I say more.

We passed two other ice cream stores to go to this one because of TA reviews. I ordered mochas chip ice cream and my wife coffee ice cream. I do believe hers tasted better because the coffee flavor was strong. The mocha part of mine was not that strong and tasted like a week coffee with yummy dark chocolate bits.... More

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.
