Yummy ice cream

John and Carol know their business. Ice cream is just what you want on a hot summer night, and theirs and their concoctions, are the best. If you need a tennis partner, then Carol can do that, too.

Alway a treat, good ice cream with many choices. Peach, a seasonal favorite of mine every summer. Staff is very helpful. Nice outdoor tables with plenty of room for a family in the afternoon.

The Free ice cream tastes are something to anticipate! The hot fudge is very rich and satisfying. The ice cream flavors are always different and quench the ice cream thirst. The shakes and Frappes are superb as well. Besides Ben and Jerry's, The Sundae School and Arnold's- one of the better places to get your ice cream fix.

Best Ice Cream around especially the Coconut Bar. It sure tastes like almond joy. It is just a fun place to visit.

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... 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.
