Everything here was amazing, besides the service. Our server stopped us mid-order to look at her phone and then (only when she had played with her cellphone for a minute) asked us to repeat our entire order. I could not believe that she would be so unprofessional but the other staff took no notice as if this was a regular... More

If you want to find a great place to cool down and find some unique flavors this is the place. They will give you a sample of anything you want to try.

I heard about this place from a friend so my son and I decided to give it a try. There was a line so we got to decide on our flavors of ice cream for about 10 minutes. We don't consume dairy so we choose our flavors from a limited vegan selection, no chocolate, just fruit flavors. Both my son... More

A visit to Bellingham is never complete without a stop at Mallard's. I always have trouble choosing among the variety of ice cream flavors, but I always choose the wonderful hot fudge topping.

Mallard is downtown, not far from the college and for Bellingham is a relatively new establishment. On the day we were there it was packed with young people. There was a good vibe. The selection of flavors was very good and the quality of the product was high. A nice stop on a sunny day.

I'm not keen on this ice cream. Although texture is good, I don't care for the flavors. It doesn't taste "real" - just sickeningly sweet and the chocolate doesn't even taste like chocolate.

This ice cream spot is a funky mix of ideas. Good selection of flavors served a variety of ways, sugar, waffle or cup. Ice cream was great, as were staff. We didn't try the coffee. Lots of locals. Bring cash, they don't take credit/debit.

I've been going here for years--the best ice cream anywhere! So many varieties but I stick to my few favorites.
