Chocolate Ghost Pepper, anyone?

You must try Mallard's amazing flavors. We visit regularly and are always delighted by their variety. Recently we had a scoop of Chocolate Ghost Pepper - a sweet burn, and my all-time favorite, Cardamom. Take cash! No cards accepted.

Not too many ice creams to choose from. This place has a big variety of ice cream, not the cheapest and the portions are on the small side. It's a busy place, good location.

Always a good stop for ice cream. Many selections, all made by themselves. My favorite is the licorice - that's unusual to get anywhere. Parking is often available right in front in the evening. A real plus.

I have loved Mallard since I moved to Bham 8 years ago. They have a great mix of "normal" and unusual ice cream flavors (think rose, lavendar). I for one cannot say no to their mint oreo flavor in a cone. They also offer sundaes and pints to go. They do only accept cash and local checks so don't rely... More

When I first visited Bellingham, family friends took us to Mallard's, and at first I wasn't sure why. What's so special about an ice cream joint? But now I get it. The establishment has unusual flavors of ice cream, and the selection changes regularly. You can sample before you order. The line is sometimes out the door. The place also... More

I LOVE their black licorice ice cream, however I they very rarely make it so I don't get into there as much as I would like.

Excellent local ice cream. Generous scoops. Frequented by locals as well as the passers-through. I'll visit again when in Bellingham.
