Katie's Homemade Ice Cream was the perfect ending to a perfect evening. We were walking along Main Street and spotted this adorable slice of nostalgia. We stepped inside to find almost any combination of homemade ice cream you could think of. I felt like a kid again and wanted to try everything in the shop. I chose strawberry ice cream,... More

It is reviews like this that remind me why I am doing this... we are all kids on the inside and ice cream reminds us of that. Thank you for all of your kind words. Can't wait to see you back at Katie's! Katie More

Try the salted caramel, it is wonderful, the scoops are generous and the staff is really friendly. We will certainly be back to try some other flavours.

Thank you for your review! I am glad to hear you enjoyed the salted caramel. I make all of the caramel right on site almost everyday (one of my hardest jobs). Next time visit the kitchen! I will teach you some things about ice cream and you can see whatever I am making that day for the scoop shop! Katie More

Thank you so much for your positive review. I work very hard trying to make everything from real ingredients, with very little added sugar or artificial anything. I am always very excited when someone writes a review like yours. With so many ice cream shops on Cape Cod, even with the care I take, it is hard to stand out.... More

I had brownie batter with oreos and chocolate chips. It was home-made and delicious. My boyfriend had mocha with oreos and whipped cream. They make their own whipped cream. It was delicious.

I am glad to hear you enjoyed your ice cream. I not only make the whipped cream but every ice cream ingredient from vanilla extract to chocolate to marshmallows and brittle. If you come back again try something else like our homemade hot fudge! Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Katie More

Let's face it, you can't throw a rock without hitting an ice cream shoppe. Katie is great quality and has lots of flavors. I can't say they really stand out from any other ice cream we tried. But if you find yourself in Hyannis, and in need of ice cream, you can't go wrong with Katie's.

I got Cape Cod Mud in a waffle cone, which was divine. My five year old got his standard vanilla with rainbow sprinkles. Of course I tasted it- delicious! My husband, however, got Lemon merengue, which had experienced some temperature variations and had ice crystals. So, 2 out of 3 ain't too bad.

I am glad you enjoyed your ice cream. Please, next time there is a problem, at Katie's or another establishment, inform the manager. We would have not only replaced your cone, but we could have taken corrective action (ie. removed product) to ensure it is not being sold to other customers. We cannot show our commitment to our product or... More

This will be a short and sweet review. We went there last evening. It seems to be popular. It is good ice cream but it didnt rock our world. Its average or slightly above average for ice cream.

Thanks for trying our ice cream and giving us your opinion. .

I am glad to hear you enjoyed you ice cream and the line was not as long (length and time) as you assumed.

We spotted this place on our way to dinner and made a point to come back afterwards. The line was out the door but moved fairly quickly. We had our ice cream in less than 10minutes.

Thanks for your review! I'm glad to hear the line moved very quickly and I am sorry you thought the ice cream was inconsistent. Every ice cream is made with different ingredients and cooking styles making each texture, flavor and consistency slightly different. Katie More
