Good, fresh, homemade ice cream. The chips were a little crunchy but the ice cream tasted very fresh. It's not up to par with the best natural ice creams that I have tried (in Cape May, Bliss ice cream is better but more expensive). It's served on the side of a house on the way into town, but they have... More

Read reviews so planned to stop by on way out of Cape May. Ice cream was very good. All of us had several different flavors and liked what we had. Odd location, not really near anything, but if you are in area you will be happy you stopped by.

This ice cream shop is a house at the end of the Garden State Parkway right before the bridge into Cape May. It's easier to get into and out of by car than expected. All home made, wonderful flavors. We had peach and butter pecan which were wonderful, but many more adventurous flavors as well. Very friendly counter staff.

Bland ice cream that wasn't fresh, though the season has only just begun. Two of the four varieties we tried contained ice crystals. Not as expensive as I imagined it to be, thankfully. Fun music playing to help you forget you're eating on the highway.

Don't miss the lavender building at the bottom of the Garden State Parkway. Just before the bridge into Cape May. Excellent homemade ice-cream. The best around. Prices have been creeping up like everyone else, but still very fair. Made right there with fresh local ingredients. We have a bajillion ice-cream joints in Cape May. On a scale of one to... More

I feel fortunate to have such a wonderful service available to Cape May. Even more wonderful when you realize that it's a one-woman operation! Great flavor, nothing better than sweating out a summer evening, catching a nice sunset over the marsh while eating a big ol' cone!

This place is right at the end of The Garden State Parkway. The ice cream is delicious and is all made fresh daily by the owner. You must visit this place and then make the hard decision of what flavor to have as there always are a large selection of flavored. The lady who owns it is always very friendly.

We love this place for the array of flavors--some common some unusual--and the fact that it is homemade (and scooped by the owner/ice cream-maker herself I believe). Every year, we find new favorites. It's a little hard to miss and you definitely have to drive to it from Cape May proper, but convenient once you become a regular. Sometimes we... More

Although it is a bit difficult to navigate and park it is worth it. Better than Springer's by far and the serving sizes are great. A small is big! Great homemade ice cream and great flavors. The outside seating can get buggy at times. Overall can't miss.

As boat-owning regulars in Cape May, we have been buying our ice cream treats here since she opened and have never been disappointed in the price, value, quality of the ice cream, or the service. First, it is Cape May, the most expensive tourist locale in this region, so all prices are high no matter where you go or what... More
