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!

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

On main street Harwich Port, this ice cream is unique! My first stop on my vacation this year, and what a treat! Parking is porvided at front and back of store. 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
