The ice cream is excellent and a 1/2 block from the Scarborough Inn where we stayed. My grand daughter even got to sit on the "Hobby Horse" outside.

There were so many flavors of ice cream and sundaes to choose from! The place was packed at 9 pm on Tuesday, and with good reason. Great, friendly service!

This shop offers a variety of sweets to satisfy anyone's cravings! Friendly atmosphere with wonderful customer service. Real banana ice cream is the best anywhere in the Cape May County! Freshest chocolate covered bananas you could ask for... Take your whole family for a great treat!

Next to The Biscayne Suites. Outstanding ice cream. Unmatched in OC. Try their Moose Tracks. Variety of cones. Very nice people. And there is outside seating.

A ver cute little place to get some good ice cream. It's a great place to get a treat if you need to escape the busy boardwalk!
