They have PEACH and banana ice cream !!! Its crowded, but the ice cream is top shelf, so get in line and grab a seat outdoors. They also have a beatirul garden of dahlias and gladiolus for that nice splash of summer color.

This family owned and operated place specializes in ice cream but has lots of candies for all ages as well! Their peach ice cream is heavenly,as is their chocolate, but they feature many flavors from plain to exotic! Friendly staff and atmosphere; a fun place all the time- even have fantastic Holiday lights in winter!

Even the kiddie cup is a good enough size for any age. Really should have skipped dinner all together and just gone... More

Been there many times. Ice cream variety and quality are always excellent. Good service, adequate seating and parking in back (not in Cooke's next door but behind the Cafe. Certainly among the better ice cream places on Cape.

Finally... An Ice Cream Shop that will Not ROB you! But that is beside the point. So, after having been diligently trying to loose 50 pounds this summer, which means no Fried Clams, Beer, Booze, Beer Battered Fried Clams etc., I was doing so well that I thought that I would reward myself with a simple ice cream cone, so...
