If you want ice cream on the Cape, this is the place to go, period. Have been coming here for years and it is consistently great. Wide variety of flavors, including my favorites cherry remy, Irish Whiskey and Irish Cream. Very generous portions and fair prices. Don't mistake this one with Sundae School which is not as good or as... More

We've been two summers in a row. The first time was really good and the unique/creative flavor offerings were great. Second year these same unique/creative flavor offerings were not available and the ice cream was overly soft. The day really hadn't been that hot at all. We won't be back!

They have a great following so decided to give them a try. Yes, the ice cream was good but their drawback is they don't take credit cards. Who goes on vacation with a bunch of cash anymore? Not us; we're almost all plastic. Hard to believe a popular establishment would have this old policy this day in age. Because of... More

Excellent selection of flavors. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Prices are what you would expect to pay on the Cape. Enjoyed the experience.

I love Schoolhouse Ice Cream!!!! I rated it 11 out of 10 because they are wicked nice, great ice cream and frozen yogurt and there are wonderful choices in flavors! There is an option for everybody! They have Carmel Cheesecake or if you want something simple you can get strawberry or vanilla. Something that you have to watch out about... More

The ice cream is excellent. I took away a star because the portions are enormous. A kiddy size was enough for two people. Bigger portions, bigger price. $12 for three people. I can get a uch better deal at home.

A great choice of ice creams, topings. Every type of fruit, liquer, whipped cream and hot fudge you can imagine. The choices of ice cream change whenever they get a new idea. Always worth a trip to the School house.

With such an array of flavours and extras to add choosing takes time but you will not be disappointed, some of the best ice cream we've ever tasted... it even gives Rome a run for it's money.

There are lots of good ice cream places on the Cape, but this is one of my favorites. They have a great selection of interesting flavors of ice cream, but also frozen yogurt. I had Maple Walnut frozen yogurt and it was a flashback to my childhood. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.
