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!

Every year we come here and they never disappoint even though the lines are long. They hand make each waffle cup and cone which you have to get here. Try the strawberry cheesecake

Ice cream is amazing. Staff so friendly! Their website says call ahead if near closing time so we did and they were true to their word . It was our last night in the cape and we absolutely did not want to go home without trying Polar Cave so we called and said we are on our way and they... More

The ice cream is fantastic and put it in a hand made waffle cone and OMG...you will forget all your troubles. I use to think Four Seas was good, they can't hold a candle to this place. If you're on the Cape this has to be part of your vacation, but start early because you will be back. Great for... More

Family and grandkids (all ages!) LOVE the ice cream here. Many flavor choices offered and a VERY friendly staff. "Frequent customer" plan with one free after ten purchased. Also, owner a very generous community citizen donating to local worthy causes. Used to go to another ice cream place...now Polar Caves is the ONLY choice!

I was first introduced to Polar Cave by my girlfriend early on this year when they opened for the season. I immediately found it to be one of the best Ice Cream places of the entire Upper Cape! The owner, Mark is exceptionally friendly, and is always there to greet his customers with a smile! His staff is also extremely... More

Great family place to enjoy an ice cream cone. Kind friendly owner and staff welcome kids and adults. We come every week for the best ice cream on Cape Cod.

Wonderful little spot on the Cape, great staff with a very friendly owner. Ice cream was good but not my fave. Four Seas still the best in my opinion. I recommend you stop by here and enjoy.

This is a very small ice cream stand. The ice cream is delicious. On a summer night you can be standing in line outside the stand since there is little standing space inside. The staff works very hard and goes as fast as they can. They each serve one "family group" at a time so they can follow the order... More
