Other than the delicious hot fudge and homemade whipped cream, there is no reason to come here for ice cream. My family tried the Oreo, vanilla, and rainbow sherbet for cone ice cream flavors and all thought it was average tasting. We all thought Friendlys ice cream tasted better. Save your money and go to "Mandy's" across the street from... More

Lovely small ice cream store on Beach Road. Wide range that satisfied everybody including me who only eats dairy free food. High quality. Great service.

I love this place. We usually go at night and suprisingly there was no line. We both got Hot fudge sundaes. The fudge is gooey and thick and the whip cream is fresh with a real cherry on top. After eating those onsite, we had to place orders to go. The line a little longer went quick, this time we... More

We have been visiting the Sundae School here in Orleans and in Dennisport for over 35 years and we'll be back. Our children and now our grandchildren all lOve this place. It has managed to maintain great sundaes and wonderful hot fudge too.

Why is Sundae School so good? Is it the tried-and-true, creamy ice cream in a wide variety of flavors? (Grapenut is my perpetual fav...) Is it the warm, gooey, homemade hot fudge? Is it the freshly made whipped cream? The "real" (aka NOT maraschino) cherry on top? Yes. All of the above. This is old fashioned ice cream. Ice cream... More

Have the Blueberry sundae- you will not regret- I had it with the lemon sorbet- dreamy beyond words. On a given night in July or August the line stretches 100 feet- and I will ALWAYS wait!!!!

This place appears to be a local institution and deservedly so. The evening line stretches into the parking lot (bring bug spray!). There is a chalk board outside with the menu and specials. Sharkstooth - black raspberry with white chocolate chunks went down very well with our kids. In fact once you go you'll find it difficult to stay away!
