Great Ice cream!

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.

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

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.

Everyone said the cupcakes were delicious. I can only vouch for the Chocolate Rainforest Crunch ice cream. The single dip was large and cost $3.75 - very worth it. Grab a cone or a dish and head to the end of the street for a beautiful view of the harbor.

If none are out when you arrive, just ask and you can order a gluten free cupcake and come back and pick it up. No place in town is too far away to stop back and pick it up.

We have enjoyed the cupcake sundaes and cupcakes a la mode before, fun and tasty treats but this time I just tried the Sweet and Salty Cupcake, without any extras. It was such a treat, a perfect blend of moist vanilla cake, creamy sweet filling and chocolate frosting, it had just the right amount of salty, sea salt, peanuts and... More

I have been to better tasting and better priced cupcake places. These are a bit over priced and not that fresh.
