One of the Very Best Ice Cream eateries on the Cape

This is one of the best and one of the best reputed ice cream shops in this area of the Cape. They have some really excellent choices of flavors at the bar. Many people believe it it the best ice cream on the Cape. We believe it is second to the Sundae School but the difference is so slight you... read more

The ice-cream at E & B's is always delicious. The staff, however, is not as friendly or as accommodating as the great staff at Sundae School. This is not new, however. For some reason, Sundae School must have great owners who value their employees and treat them well, because the young kids who work there are patient, converse, and helpful.... More

Delicious ice cream! We like to try as many different ice cream shops as possible while on vacation (hey, we love dessert). I had some sort of caramel swirled ice cream, which was very tasty. Definitely recommend.

Nice place to enjoy a cup of coffee or ice cream. Great selection in ice cream or coffee. Pleasant outdoor or indoor atmosphere. Friendly staff. I enjoyed my Cappuccino. I would love to go back and try their ice cream...big scoops and delicious ice cream cones.

Went to the NY store with my daughter a few months ago and was happy to find the quality is consistent in Cape Cod too. The outdoor seating was a good touch and the ice cream was AMAZING.

I've been going here for years, creative flavors, simple set up. Super casual. CASH ONLY. Small # of tables outside. Perfect for summer evening.

Had the most delicious ice cream here last night. The Grasshoper Pie flavor is out of this world. Emack and Bolio's serves consistently good ice cream and always has great flavors. I love the cozy atmosphere, the large porch area to sit and eat feels like you are home. Great spot for ice cream.

Tell your workers if they sneeze in their hands to wash their hands, and not serve ice cream. As soon as I saw this I left. Not much variety, but it is busy.
