My family and I come here every year on our trip to Cape Cod - it's so delicious! There's a wide variety of ice cream and so far I haven't been able to find one that I dislike! Definitely worth stopping in!

Oh my yummy goodness! My family went to a different ice cream shop each night during our week vacation. Yes, we have an addiction! Our final night we went back to our favorite place, the Ice Cream Cafe. My personal fav was chocolate mint thin mint. I can't wait to go back next summer and visit every evening. Forget the... More

The Ice Cream Cafe is centrally locate across from the Christmas Tree Shop and Cooke's Seafood. One person in our group said it was the best ice cream she had ever had! It's busy in the evenings during the summer so be prepared to wait in line, but they have a nice outdoor patio area, and really, it's worth the... More

We were taken here by cousins who know Oreans better than we do. Great choice for ice cream. There are lots of great places for ice cream on the Cape and this is one of them. Its a little cheaper than some bigger "school" establishment up the road. I can't say the icecream was particularly better than anywhere else but... More

Ice Cream has always been an issue for family... my daughter has a dairy allergy. Last summer we went in and they had Non Dairy Ice Cream options (and not just sorbets). We went a few times last year, and my daughter was so happy to be able to get real chocolate ice cream... NOW, the regular dairy flavors... outstanding!!!... More

After my terrible experience at the Hot Chocolate Sparrow, I was extremely cautious due to my allergy. The employees here were very helpful. I entered the Ice Cream Cafe and informed them of my allergy. They knew what a tree nut was, and what I could and couldn't consume. I was very thankful. The employees were very nice there and...

Homemade ice cream and creemee (soft serve for you flat landers). This is our go to place for ice cream. Straight forward homemade ice cream with a wide array of flavors. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Creamy and smooth creemee (soft serve). Limited seating is the only negative aspect of this place.

This place gives Sundae School a run for its money! Prices are better, flavour is just as good and texture is just as creamy. Give it a try! Well worth saving a few bucks and experiencing something just as tasty as some of the other more popular "Cape Cod ice cream jaunts!| They could use a few more places to... More

We have a homemade ice cream place where we are from so I was very critical of this place. It was fantastic!
