Very tasty but could be creamier

White Mountain has great tasting ice cream and the service is always pleasant. It's a neat place with plenty of seating and fair prices. The ice cream is flavorful but some flavors could be creamier, in my opinion. The peanut butter chocolate is pretty awesome as is the coffee oreo.

My boyfriend is a BC alum and has been here several times. He always talks about how good this place is and we stopped on a recent trip to Boston. Let me tell you this is some of the best ice cream I have ever eaten!! It’s nice and rich and creamy. So many flavors to choose from and they... More

Friendly, helpful staff. Delicious ice cream. You cannot beat the Cookie Monster based cake! Located right at the end of the Boston College branch of Green line.

My daughter and I stopped by here one afternoon and had hot fudge sundaes. What a sweet treat! The whipped cream was to SO good! I'd drive the hour from home just to have it again! Then there was the hot fudge and ice cream which was also delicious. All together it was the best sundae I've had in a... More

This place has the best ice cream ever with lots of delicious flavours and great service. It's definitely worth going out of your way for. Lots of people seem to be in on the secret though, so you might have to line up a little.

I'm lactose intolerant so I can't speak for the ice cream, but the sherbet is good. However, I would say it's comparable to a tub of Häagen Dazs sherbet from the grocery. Yummy, but expensive.

When we want to "go out for ice cream," we don't go to Cabot's or JP Licks, we go to White Mountain Creamery. It has a nice, old-fashioned ice cream shop character that the others lack. The friendly owner often serves and can remember orders even from a few days ago. The place is somewhat quirky and on the walls... More

We've been big fans of this White Mountain for years, and just tried it again during a visit. The ice cream was OK, nothing special, and the prices were ridiculously expensive, even for Boston. We'll remember it fondly bur probably won't return.

Always friendly service and consistently delicious ice cream. I've been going here for about 3 years and I always recommend to friends and family.
