Crepes, pancakes are always good. However, had waffles with fresh strawberry's that was a little pricey.

At John's drive in. Had a terrible experience there this past week. We ordered ice cream and payed the bill. As we proceeded to leave this young Jamaican women with pigtails, behind the counter, started to accuse us of not paying for the ice cream which was a total fabrication. Our hunch was that as it is the end of... More

Small ice cream shop that also offers burgers and fries. Be sure to bring cash because its all they accept. We enjoyed the banana fudge and black cherry ice cream but my favorite was the soft serve cone dipped in chocolate. Classic and delicious!

Loved the dinginess of the place, though the staff would not look at us when we ordered. The ice cream was delicious- great flavors, super creamy. Yes!

Always stop there for a vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles when I'm in Montauk and it never disappoints. I hope they never change the atmosphere. Very 50's/60's and no matter how long the line is they keep it moving and always have a friendly smile.

Homemade ice cream that is one of the staples of Montauk. Not gelato, not fancy--just really good creamy flavorful ice cream that can turn your day (week/month/weekend) around. My dad takes me whenever I'm having a bad day and it cheers me right up. One of our guests bought us several pints as a thank you gift and it was... More

This staple of Montauk has the best homemade ice cream in Montauk (perhaps the Hamptons). Burgers are also amazing. Great diner-type food and a must if visiting MTK

We love the Ice Cream, it is creamy and tasty. The burgers and chips are also good. There is a decent menu but we stick to the basics.

Incredible ice cream....this is a must stop if you are in Montauk. The prices are reasonable and everyone raved about their cheeseburgers.
