We stopped here on a nice sunny November day, and ate our delicious ice cream out on the deck. Not many places are open in Nov. in Hyannis, but we were glad to see Katie's open. My husband had a cone and I had a cup this time. Looking at it, I thought it would be too much, but it... More

Ok, it's good. But, not even close to the best. Portion size is decent, but pricey. There are better ice creams. Perhaps Katie needs to get to Moline, Illinois for an internship @ Whitey's. Their 16% butterfat ice cream and 30-some flavors are difficult to beat. Then, there's Umpqua ice cream @ The Creamery in Bandon, Oregon...

The ice cream is delicious but what keeps me coming back is the staff. Always cheerful and pleasant.

We stopped by while walking the Main Street. They had the original flavones but also some different and interesting recipes. We had the Shore Drive which was delicious! We'll definitely visit again.

We ordered a Sundae with one scoop of ice cream and one scoop in a dish. The one scoop sundae was served with stale peanuts and carmel sauce that was not a quality carmel. Price $10.00 for the two orders. That would have been okay if the quality was there but it was not.

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.
