If you want ice cream this is the place to go to, it beats Sunday school ice cream by a mile. You get a lot for you money at schoolhouse and its right on route 28 in Harwich

The line forms quick outside during summer because they serve delicious ice cream. It really is an old school house. Many flavors and sundaes and shakes are awesome. Take a seat at an old school desk and enjoy a Chatham favorite. Friendly staff too.

This ice cream place is one of the best around. Parking can be a bit of a challenge, but well worth it. They have a ton of flavors, including some frozen yogurt. Their portions are HUGE, their sundaes are delish. My husband enjoys their shakes. They make their own ice cream and it is so creamy. Since this is more... More

Yummy! Homemade ice cream using the best of products. The shop is close to Saquatucket Harbor so......ice cream to go is perfect for watching the boats go by. The shop also features comfy seating while enjoying your ice cream treats. This is a must if you're staying in around Harwich, MA.

We are actually "local" and wouldn't consider going anywhere else when that urge for a yummy cone or sundae hits. The ice-cream is the best and the servings are generous. The owners are the nicest people and support the community in so many ways. It is a great place to stop in the summer and relax-without guilt!!-with a wonderful ice-cream... More

Our family loved every creamy flavor that we tried! They have so many delicious sounding flavors to choose from. My favorite was the ginger. It had little chunks of candied ginger in it. I also loved the cranberry sorbet. The servings are huge. They have a few outside tables and several inside tables. We were fortunate that they hadn't closed... More

Like many of the local residents, we feel that Schoolhouse has the best ice cream on the Cape. The selection is varied, the portions are huge, and the quality can't be beat.....what more could you ask for?

No matter where we stay, we usually find our way to Schoolhouse Ice Cream! Small cones are actually quite big so be aware when ordering. This was our last stop on our vacation this year and it was a delicious one!
