The hard ice cream is guaranteed to be made with natural products and no artificial flavourings. Unless you are a very big eater, or sharing, stick to one scoop. They make... More

Best homemade ice cream in Chatham. Try the heath bar ice cream or the pistachio and make sure to check out the hot pink bench.

Delicious ice cream, good choices, small store with a very friendly service. Seemed pricier than we expected... still well worth it on a nice evening sitting on a bench in a charming little town ..watching the world go by on a balmy summer evening.. Life is good on Cape Cod....

If you are in Cape Cod in Chatham and want to get refreshed go no further than Buffy's ice cream. They have delicious ice cream. A pleasure to our palates.

Best ice cream shop in Chatham. Very friendly staff who keep the long lines moving quickly! The ice cream is fantastic, with tons of different kinds to choose from. We stopped by a few times during our week in Chatham and were never disappointed.

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.
