Best Ice Cream on the Cape!

This is a must for our family when we are on the Cape! Last trip we were there 5 out of 7 days and my kids can't wait to go back this year! The place is small and seating is limited only about 3 small tables inside and maybe 8 outside. The line usually is out the door but it... read more

Not only is the ice cream delicious, the staff here is invariably pleasant and helpful. It can be very crowded, especially on the weekends, but your patience will be rewarded.

Two words: Simply delicious. The service is fast, the prices are reasonable, and the portions are good. Also, it's all home-made in the back of the shop.

An Orleans institution, the Ice Cream Cafe is far and above the best in town. 43+ flavors of hard ice cream with another 3 or 4 of the soft variety. (There are non-dairy options for both hard and soft.) Try a special of ICC -- fresh fruit or crumbled cookies mixed with either chocolate or vanilla. The sundae and frappe... More

This place is great. It's hard to find vegan ice cream anywhere, and I wasn't expecting options on Cape Cod. The Ice Cream Cafe has a big menu with all sorts of dairy-based and vegan goodies alike. I was happy to get a vegan sundae: chocolate and vanilla twist, hot fudge, nuts, and a real cherry. This is a nice... More

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!
