Nice Sized Ice Cream Cones

My wife and I stopped here for ice cream. The scoop sizes were large and generous. They serve Giffords ice cream which is not my favorite, yet quite good. Seating provided outside where we people watched while enjoying our cones.

I stopped in for a couple cupcakes and they all looked so good, it was difficult to choose.. I bought a yummy strawberry cupcake with fresh strawberries in the batter and a yummy strawberry butter cream frosting and a chocolate peanut butter cup, a chocolate cupcake with a delicious peanut butter frosting with chunks of Reese's peanut butter cup folded...

we've only stopped in for ice cream but it is excellent. There are quite a few flavor choices so I'm sure you will find several to your liking. The scoops are generous.

Okay ice cream shop. Nothing really special about it. We didn't try the cupcakes -- it was the end of the day & they didn't look great

We got one cupcake and split it 3 ways. It was good. Wish we'd tried some more flavors. Not something you'd eat all the time, but nice to treat yourself with when you're on vacation. We walked off the calories shopping on Bearskin Neck! Service was a little like we were bothering the guy, who had little-to-no personality and made... More

My family and I, who live locally, have been here a couple of times. The good = the cupcakes, ice cream, etc. The typical = the prices ($5 for one scoop of ice cream). The bad = inconsistent service. We recently went and had the misfortune of encountering an older, dark haired lady who was just downright rude to customers.... More

While walking around Rockport, I stopped here for a few scoops of ice cream. The ice cream served here is Gifford's Ice Cream which is very good. Make sure to also taste the variety of cupcakes while you're here.

A good variety of cupcake flavors as well as ice creams. The cupcakes have filling in them so there's not too much cake to them, so if you like frosting, this is the place to go.
