Come taste "quite possibly the best ice cream you ever tasted". We constantly are winning awards for our old fashioned ice cream served with old fashioned service to match. Offering everything possible with ice cream. From "The Worlds Smallest Cone" to Frappes, Malts and Sundaes to the gigantic "Arctic Circle Sundae" with 20 scoops of ice cream

If you have never had one of our "straight from the iron, baked & rolled" waffle cones you have missed out on one of the greatest ice cream experiences. Just ask any one that has!

Delicious

Always delicious ice cream at polar cave. Great selection of flavors, alas my fav is only a periodic special, banana w/ chocolate chunks and walnuts, so good it's worth the wait. Staff is always friendly and efficient, and did I say friendly?! It's like seeing old friends when the season begins!!

You cannot get better ice cream on the Cape. Their waffle cones and waffle bowls made to order are to die for.

This summer my husband and I enjoyed ice cream several times after dinner from the Polar Cave Ice Cream Parlor. My husband especially enjoys the home made waffle cones here. The service is great and you can't beat the ice cream

The owner and staff are friendly and well organized from taking your order through handing you a warm, freshly made waffle cone filled with your favorite flavored ice cream. The small size is huge so be warned that a child's size cup may be all you want if you're watching your weight. They also have frozen yogurts. There is no... More

The atmosphere is fun at the Polar Cave and the ice cream was very good. Unfortunately 75% of my party had stomach problems after eating ice cream here including - vomiting and diarrhea.
