The 1898 flavor of the store with its small ice cream tables and chairs make the homemade ice cream taste even better! The owner and great-grandson of the founder is there and accessible to all guests. His pictorial history of the family is well worth purchasing. Keep this landmark on your "bucket list".

If you want you kids to know what it was like before the chain restaurants, stop in the Hallet's and have a soft drink and a dish of ice cream the way it was served in the 1950's. Nothing has changed here and that's what makes it great. Even the people working here are fresh-faced kids probably working their first... More

Wonderful old historic building and the inside has been kept beautifully authentic. But -- sorry to say -- the last time I went into Hallet's for an ice cream cone, the woman working there had long stringy hair (NOT tied back or under a hat) and was reaching over into the ice cream freezer with her hair over the ice...

This is a Cape Cod institution...located in an old apothecary and hosted by a member of the history Hallet family...it is a must stop on 6A! Don't forget to ask for The Bear. You won't be sorry you asked...

I had the rum raisin ice cream and my husband the strawberry and both were creamy and delicious. The owner was there and it was lovely to talk with him about the history of his shop. We also bought a can of their "famous" clam chowder to take back home with us. A lovely place to stop and delicious homemade... More

Hallet's has such an historic, charming building, but every time we go, even in high tourist season, it's deserted and kind of forlorn. I'd hate to see an old local landmark close, but have to say that on this recent visit, the ice cream didn't seem very fresh or flavorful. And I don't understand why ANY eatery is legally permitted... More

On Saturday, July 12 at 3:45 p.m. my husband and I entered the store and the girl behind the counter was busy, but she completely ignored us for a full five minutes. No hello, no 'be right with you...' no acknowledgment at all until I asked her to verify that restrooms aren't available to customers. We walked out. Potential patrons... More

Staying in a local B&B, we decided to eat in our room so called in at Hallet's store. We left with a very delicious sandwich of minced ham and cheese. The young assistant was very pleasant and was very patient while we looked at the menu. It is a quaint type of store, with plenty of items from the past... More
