Sinful Sundaes

Homemade Ice Cream with the perfect amount of butter fat and a fantastic variety of choices for every ice cream-loving palate, the Ice Cream Cafe is a must stop whenever you pass by. Incredible Salted Caramel and the sundaes are made with homemade whipped cream. Yum.

After a tasty meal at a local restaurant we took our grandchildren for an ice cream treat. We were very happy to find gluten-free cones as well as a wide variety of ice cream treats for various food preferences ( gluten-free, vegan etc).

ClassicCape Cod Ice Cream shop...but its home made, local, tons of variety and kids behind the counter earning their summer wages and having fun! They just emit a cool infectious energy! Great for families and hanging out after a nice day at the beach! Not a place to go if your watching your weight or trying to eat healthy though!

Perhaps ICC has the only expresso machine on the Cape. All the highly rated restaurants do NOT serve expresso. So, head to The Cafe for desert and a triple expresso. You will not be disappointed.

Delicious ice cream, made on site, Great service so the line moves quickly and has tables and chairs to sit and eat outside. As locals, we are only sorry it isn't open more of the year!

It's worth the wait! The line may be out the door but you won't be disappointed if you wait. Lots of flavor a to choose from and some interesting ones at that. Try the frozen yogurt with fresh fruit. A definite winner.
