Delicious and fun location

Katie's Ice Cream not only has delicious ice cream but its location allows you to sit on the corner of Main Street and people watch. Great selection of ice creams just a really fun local family business.

I've had better. SO MUCH BETTER. And the summer staff was underwhelming. Its a summer destination and ice cream is supposed to be their business. Some of the butterscotched flavors are "artificial aftertaste" burdened. And the staff was not all that helpful (and I had a 14 year old with me who was underwhelmed, and ice cream is one of...

Walking through Hyannis with friends in the middle of the afternoon, we stopped by for a few cones and cups of ice cream. It was a great decision. The ice cream is creamy, rich, and delicious. We sat outside and truly enjoyed ourselves.

This place rocks!!! The home made ice cream AND whip cream were sooo yummy. Open late at night and not expensive at all. There was a line out the door and it was well worth the wait.

Their rich and creamy ice cream comes in so many delicious flavors, you will have a hard time choosing! Break out of vanilla and try something new. Not sure you'll like it - ask for a sample. They even have gluten-free cones that taste good!

I've heard a lot about Katie's but last several times we've been to the Cape the store was closed. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and my husband and I really enjoyed the ice cream. I ordered the Peanut Butter Moose Tracks which had lots of peanut butter pieces inside a creamy chocolate ice cream. My husband ordered the Cape... More

Do not leave Hyannis without a trip to Katie's. Sit outside (or in) and relax with one of the numerous ice creams, what a variety of flavours! Chose carefully the 1, 2,or 3 scoops as they are enormous . One was more than enough after lunch.

We went to Kate’s Homemade Ice cream shop on a tip from one of the local residents. It’s rumored to be the best ice cream around – and it was. So creamy and delicious. I was taking a tour of Hyannis with my mom and we were going to order dessert at a restaurant down the street and a woman... More
