We like to think we know the best ice cream from all over. Mallard didn't disappoint! Wonderful, friendly service AND great ice cream! The Mint Oreo was heaven in a waffle cone! And they support the Bellingham Bay Swim Team! Thanks Mallard!!!!

The best ice cream in Bellingham, WA. Take it out by Cone, pint or sit down and enjoy downtown with a sundae or cone. The best unique flavors. I love the coconut chocolate chip vanilla ice cream. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Seasonal flavors are yummy too.

Fun to try many flavors with amazingly different and very strong, unusual flavors. But this is an uber-hipster joint, so expect dont care servers with tatoos and nose rings. And yes, very small portions for the price. Salt and Straw (Portland) does it better.
