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.

What a fun spot! Long lines but service was fun and friendly, ice cream was delicious and the seating area was also very well laid out. All in all we had a great time.

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.

This is by far the best ice cream on the Cape. So creamy, rich and delicious. The shop has so much character too. We come to Cape Cod on vacation and have Schoolhouse, but never can eat ice cream anywhere else because it is that good. Oreo, Cookie Dough, Vanilla and Burlington Heath are our favorites.

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.
