Interesting flavors and good ice cream

When we first walked in and up to the counter, the two employees started dancing to the music and danced right into the back room without ever saying hello. So, the service wasn't all that great, but when they had finished their dance party, we enjoyed the ice cream. The non-dairy grapefruit was... read more

Malllards ice cream is the best ever! The hot Fudge Sundae is our favorite. The hot fudge and whipping cream are fresh made in the shop. We like it with the super vanilla ice cream. My other all-time favorite is coconut ice. They use real coconut cream to make these. The creativity and a variety of unusual flavors is what... More

We frequent Mallards a few times a year. It always has a refreshing array of interesting flavors. All ingredients are organic. Locally sourced flavors in season include strawberry, raspberry and blueberry. They have excellent standbys like chocolate, and vanilla. Unexpected combinations include lavender and Basil. Don't be intimidated by the line out the door. Even with the free tastes everybody... More

One of the delights about Bellingham is Mallard's Ice Cream. They have the most amazing flavors, always changing them, but keep the basics, too. Their ice cream is worth the drive if you are passing through and the staff are always delightful. It is a fun place, kids love it and so do the young at heart!

Walk around town holding hands. Try cardamom ice cream at Mallards. Remember that life is very good!

Mallard's is the best ice cream in Bellingham, on the west coast of North America, and maybe even the whole continent. Everything is delicious. Everything that can be is organic. Lines are long (for Bellingham). While you're waiting (after you've planned out what you're going to taste) look at their collection of toy ducks. Try some of the more exotic... More

We live about an hour south of Bellingham and travel north about once a month. When we do we make sure we stop at Mallard's for ice cream. Their flavors are not your usual mix, but they are all wonderful. If you want great ice cream, Mallard is the place.

After hearing rave reviews about Mallard Ice Cream, I finally went and tried it. It was good, but I didn’t think it was as amazing as I had been told it was. Perhaps the most unique aspect of Mallard is its wide array of unusual flavors. While they offer “traditional” flavors like cheesecake, cookies and cream, peppermint, and various fruit... More
