Cape Cod Sand - secret recipe

Lovely ice cream. Cape Cod Sand is my favourite flavour on the Cape! It's a secret recipe so I should mention it tastes like, well, it's a secret. You'll just have to trust me that it's fab and come and try it

Best Homemade Ice cream I have ever had. Makes me wonder if the "others" are really who they say they are.

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...

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
