Fun flavors, mud pie is their specialty. Plenty of other fun flavors and toppings too. Long lines in the summer but worthwhile! Cash only.

It's an old house converted into an ice cream store, with ample seating on the cute porch, in an open garden area, and inside. A beautiful tree with many... More

Came here today. Ice cream portions are large for each size. For instance, a kiddie cone is a couple of scoops. However, the prices reflect the size. Service was friendly and reasonably efficient. The ice cream was only okay. It was overly sweet and all the sundae ingredients weren't that good (hot fudge and whipped cream didn't taste real; nuts... More

What can you say about the best ice cream on Cape Cod? There is a reason there are lines every night for this place. You just have to go and experiance it yourself.

Fantastic ice cream! (I had a HUGE bowl of Maine Black Bear & Maple Walnut) They were very busy, with a line out the door, but it moved quickly. When we reached the counter, even though they had been buried with customers, there was a warm greeting, a beautiful smile, and the best ice cream on the Cape.

We expected more based on word of mouth. Average and a bit pricey. Harwich Port location always busy on summer nights.

I was expecting really great ice cream; I had the one with chunks of brownie; I would have had peach but they didn't have it, which seemed strange to me. It was peach season.

Nice flavor selection and the portions are much more generous than the ever popular Sundae School down the road. You get much more bang for your buck here. It also has a very cozy, pleasant atmosphere making the experience that much more enjoyable. The only issue is lack of adequate parking.
