Best Ice Cream Shop In Harwich

Ice cream is fantastic, service is quick, prices are fair, servings are huge and decor is of interest. The Schoolhouse Ice Cream Shop is way above the Sundae School Ice Cream Shop just down the street in every single way. The Schoolhouse Ice Cream Shop is the best in town.

This place is worth a visit! They have generous portions of the best ice cream on the Cape (I have been to a lot of ice cream shops around here)! They have a huge selection of flavors (all homemade!), toppings, and they even give free doggy sundaes (vanilla yogurt topped with a dog bone) if you bring along your doggy... More

The ratings are all true with Schoolhouse Ice Cream. This store gives you large servings of delicious ice cream. I am not normally an ice cream fan, but Schoolhouse won me over with their Irish Whiskey Coffee Ice Cream. Their waffle cones are equally as delicious and their prices are what you would expect to pay for the large serving... More

I ordered a regular size ice cream cone and the gal warned me that it was huge so I down-sized to a small. Still huge!! Maple walnut on a waffle cone. Yummy. Absolutely loaded with walnuts, too. Mmmmmmmm!

We vacation in Chatham and used to drive to Harwich for our summer treats. No more. We "tried" Schoolhouse once and have been loyal fans ever since. Every flavor and topping you can imagine, delicious ice cream and frozen yogurt, friendly and efficient staff, charming old schoolhouse atmosphere. Not one bit fancy but a neighborhood gem!

The quality is great. The portions are huge, ask for small. Gotta try the Harwich Mud Pie! The service is outstanding.

Summer would not be complete without a visit to Schoolhouse Ice Cream. It's worth the long lines and heat. Experiment with many flavor choices!

The Schoolhouse Ice Cream experience is excellent is all ways. The ice cream -- in dozens of the traditional and many unique flavors, with alternatives for most people's taste, dietary needs, and style -- comes in generous portions and is always outstanding! The setting, a quite spot right on Route 28, is attractive, unusual, and fun. You can choose to... More

We've been coming to Schoolhouse for years and just love the ice-cream and yogurt ice cream - toasted almond being my favorite. They have yummy flavors and the hot fudge sauce is great. However, they don't always have the greatest servers. Some of the scoopers need to smile and learn how to treat customers in a more friendly manner. If... More

This is the BEST ice cream on the Cape! They have so many wonderful flavors. Pistacio and Rum Raisin are our favorites. The cups are GENEROUS - I feel we get more at this parlor, and we love to take it home. Yum, see you next season!
