Very good

There are many good ice cream places and this is certainly one of them. Everything is tasty, the prices are reasonable and the staff is good every year. The outdoor benches and tables can fill up, but don't let that discourage you from going there.

They have vegan soft-serve, hard-serve, sundaes, milkshakes...three diff. kinds of vegan milk (almond, soy, coconut) Very generous servings - absolutely HUGE. Honestly! A regular size is bigger than an xl in most places! Absolutely delicious! One extremely great point is that they have AMAZING vegan hot fudge! We were SO impressed. Extremely busy, esp in the evenings (the queue went... More

Excellent ice cream store, good selections, PLUS vegan & other non-dairy selections! Prices were reasonable to normal by Cape-Cod-in-the-summer standards -- about $17 for four people. We will go there again.

We love the ice cream cafe ... a must stop every year during our visits to the Cape! Almond Joy, Mango and Cherry Vanilla Choc Chip our go to flavors but so many delicious choices! Always packed but the lines always move quickly and staff super efficient and friendly!

We've been a big fan of The Sundae School for the past 20 years. However, TSS has met its match. The Ice Cream Cafe has the creamiest and most delicious homemade ice cream. Their hot fudge is great and the have a great selection of flavors. The Salty Caramel is to die for. My wife and I decided tonight that... More

This place is great. All homemade ice creams, with over 20 flavors! The wait can be long here, and the ordering gets a little hectic with up to 4 people taking orders with one register. However, it is well worth it! You must go here at least once...maybe even 2 or 3 times!

I ordered the nondairy ice cream made from coconut cream - key lime coconut was delicious and tasted Rich and creamy. Went back to try the other flavor so during our trip. Service was fast. Since it is such a popular spot more seating can be tough, otherwise everything was perfection :)

We stopped for a snack and had quite a time trying to choose from all of their homemade flavors of ice cream!!!!! I had such a hard time choosing I decided to get two flavors!!! All of our choices were delicious!!! We'll be sure to stop back next time we are in Cape Cod.

We visit the Ice Cream Cafe at least once every summer. We have a lactose intolerant kid and he is always happy that he has more choices here than at most ice cream places. The portions are good and the prices are fair for ice cream on the Cape.

It's NOT a chain or company with 5 locations. It's in Orlean's besides Cooks, the Lost Dog and behind the Christmas Tree Shop off of 6A. I LOVE Dark Chocolate Chip & my wife LOVES Chocolate Brownie. There are more than 30 other flavors that could be your favorite. Enjoy the Ice Cream!
