We came twice in our 4 day stay it was so good. It was always super busy but we were still served quickly. They have delicious dairy free options too! The patio was a great place to enjoy our ice cream.

Fun and festive. Good quality ice cream. A little light on the additions. I had the Butter Brickle. The vanilla ice cream was perfectly flavored and the texture was smooth; however, there wasn't much brickle added to the batch.

My friend and I visited Katie's before leaving Cape Cod, wish we had gone each and every day! It was amazing! Staff were friendly and patient as we decided what we wanted and what flavour took our fancy. We ended up with a milkshake each and throughly enjoyed it! The actual shop itself was lovely inside and out. We were... More

There were so many choices! The staff was wonderful about explaining flavors and offering samples (Sand Ice Cream anyone?) Kate's was packed, but the line moved quickly. We loved it!

We loved the ice cream here. They have many different flavors and are reasonably priced. The location is very convenient and in walking distance from many hotels and cottages in Hyannis.

Until we visited this place, the only ice cream shops we'd seen where they use separate scoops and fresh vats of ice cream for celiacs, to ensure no cross-contamination, was Grom in various cities in Italy. It's a big confidence booster for celiacs to see such care taken. And the ice cream is great. Many thanks.

Katie's has friendly service and is in a well trafficed location so I was not surprised that it was packed. The ice cream however was disappointing. If you like a rich creamy ice cream you are better off going down the street to Ben & Jerrys.

Terrific ice cream and I love that they added a self serve fro-yo section with all the toppings. They tend to have long lines, but they move quickly and the staff is very friendly.

My kids went out in the evening for one last ice cream on the cape. They were going to go to Ben & Jerry's then remembered I read about Katie's. They both had dble scoop in a cup. Great flavours and unqiue. My spouse and I tried a sample of all four of theirs. Very creamy and could tell home... More
