If you are in the area of Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard there is a "homemade" ice cream shop on every corner and at least two in between. Katie's is a solid choice with your normal flavors plus some unique combinations that are very good. I recommend Cookie Monster or mocha coffee. Also they are open late at night.

Glad to hear you liked our selections of classic and unique ice cream flavors. I love to be a little more adventurous with some of my flavors. We are so happy that we stood out to you over the dozens of other scoop shops. Have a wonderful holiday season. Hope to see you again! Katie More

Delicious ice cream. Had a hard time choosing flavors since there were so many. Glad it wasn't busy so I could ask what their "custom" flavors were. They have a very large deck that overlooks Main Street - great for people watching. Even though you pay a dollar for the waffle cone, you must fill it with at least two... More

Glad to hear you enjoyed your experience at Katie's. We only a offer two sizes in a waffle cone because that is how we do things at Katie's, every business is different. Our employees inform you of this so that you may make the decision to have a waffle cone or not, it is always your choice. Thanks for coming... More

It's always difficult to decide among so many enticing choices, but the staff are friendly and patient. The servings are generous, delicious, yet at surprisingly inexpensive prices. This is a far superior experience than the ones we have tried recently at Martha vineyard.

Really good ice cream eaten on the deck watching the passing parade. A bit pricey but still good. Worth a try.

Thank you for your review and I am glad you enjoyed your ice cream. Unfortunately, the cost of dairy and other products are on the rise. At Katie's we offer a competitive price for ice cream compared to other similar businesses in our area. Katie More

I found this place through Trip Advisor, though it was easy to physically find with all of the people enjoying ice cream outside on a pleasant summer night. The place was busy, but there were lots of employees on hand so we didn't have to wait at all to be helped. They were great in providing samples as it was... More

I asked for an ice-cream recommendation from the staff, and ended up trying their secret recipe, called Cape Cod Sand. I loved it! This is a great place, friendly staff, lots of outdoor seating. I want to go back to try more flavors!

Got a strawberry ice cream sundae and unfortunately the nut topping was stale. Could have been the perfect sundae if the nuts weren't rancid. My son had a vanilla frappe which he said he liked...that's why I gave it 3 stars.

Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that your nuts were stale. We pulled them off of the shelf immediately after reading this and replaced them with new walnuts. Next time please remember to say something immediately to management so we can fix a problem. Have a wonderful fall and thanks for your visit. 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.
