We've been to Hyannis lots of time but never been in here, not sure why... It was very busy the day we went and I can see why, the ice cream is fantastic, lots of choice, the staff we're great and friendly. We'll be back next year.

We weren't expecting much but a typical crappy ice cream cone from anywhere on main street but, let me tell you, Katie's has the best ice cream I have ever had. I got the cookie dough in a cone, not only was the small extremely HUGE, it was DELICIOUS! It didn't taste disgustingly sweet like regular vanilla or something, but... More

Katies has everything from homemade candy and ice cream with a nice gift shop in the back. This is my second year staying in Hyannis and the first place we have to hit it Katies. The best salt water taffty, the guy makes it right there in front of you.

Next time your in town stop by and visit us, Katie's Ice Cream, we make all of our ice cream right on site and Monday to Saturday you can stop by our kitchen and watch Katie... More

Service was good and the flavors were varied and yummy. Scoop sizes are good and given the wide range of ice cream prices a single scoop for $3.60 for a decent-sized scoop was a good deal.

While walking on the Main Street in Hyannis, Katie's homemade ice cream beckoned us inside to try the homemade treat. Once inside we reviewed the board, chose a flavor and then surveyed the counter to determine the ordering protocol. It took us less than 2 minutes to see there was no protocol. Customers standing about, somewhat chaotically; a wait staff,... More

I have been going to Katie's for several years and have always ordered "Cape Cod Sand" ice cream. It's a secret recipe and they won't tell you what's in it. When they opened this June I ordered the Sand but the flavor was different. I hope the go back to the original recipe.

Thank you so much and we appreciate your review and opinion. Unfortunately we are now making all of our flavors and ingredients from scratch and Cape Cod Sand is among them. We made the decision to cut out corn syrup, artificial ingredients and 30% of the sugar. We wanted real flavors with real ingredients we could stand behind. I understand... More

We love Katie's. The ice cream is fresh and homemade and the flavors are so creative. I had Raspberry Cashew this time. Outstanding! My all-time favorite is Cape Cod Sand. It's a secret recipe, but it's too good not to try. The free samples are terrific, and the kids on the staff are great.

On our recent vacation to Cape Cod as ice cream lovers it was our familes goal to find our favorite place. We had ice cream in Dennis, Chatham, Orleans and Yarmouth and all were fantastic but our favorite was Katies. The place itself is centrally located along the main drag in Hyannis with plenty of outdoor seating on the patio.... More
