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.

Best ice cream after kayaking

We have a kayaking group where we reward ourselves after a day of kayaking. Our favorite spot is Polar Cave. Best ice cream, great selection, best value and friendliest servers. We go out of our way to get to Polar Cave. Do your taste buds a favor and treat them to Polar Cave.

Best Ice Cream on Cape Cod. I love the servers and it is great ice cream. They make there own waffle cones right in front of you. Not like in some places who make them and just wait for people to buy them. These are warm and fresh. I love this place.

We were turned on to Polar Cave Ice Cream about 6 years ago. It was love at first taste! The small size is the size of a large anywhere else, the line out the door is actually fun…you won't believe who you'll meet. The staff is great, & they make the waffle cones and waffles as you order. Where else... More

I never order cones but seeing the waffle cones freshly made and smelling so good I gave in. Ordered the avalanche sundae which is a specialty chocolate peanut butter dream and I added the waffle bowl. Everything was amazing and the waffle was scrumptious. Staff was friendly and now I know why this place is top graded on trip advisor.... More

First of all you have to get a homemade waffle cone. The ice cream is great and a small is still very large. But the counter help was helpful, friendly and actually seemed to enjoy what they do. Highly recommend
