If your looking for good ice cream and odd flavors Mallards is a good place. However, the serving size is very small and the cost is per scoup is fairly high. I've been going to Mallards for many years and it seems the scoups keep getting smaller. Each time I walk out after my purchase I can't help but think... More

Saw this cute place and decided to stop for ice cream one evening. Excellent! I had something lemon (yum yum lemon maybe) and chocolate coconut pecan - in a cup, husband had strawberry - in a cone. Both were delich. All ice cream is made there I guess and the flavor choices were interesting and many.

What a great place. You can tell it's good by the line out the door on saturday night (but don't worry it doesn't take too long) They let you try whatever you want, and their flavors are really something. From flavors like basil or olive oil to cheese cake (with 10 other descriptions in the name) , rhubarb and a... More

Mallards ice cream always hits the spot. Each and every flavor I have had there has been good. While they always have the standards, they are very creative and have lots of flavors and flavor combinations that are novel and creative. Even though they sometimes sound weird, if you go ahead and sample them with an open mind, you will... More

Excellent ice cream, gelato, and sorbet. A wide variety of flavours and many specials. Right in downtown Bellingham. Good bet.

Went in at 10:30pm Sat. they close at 11p. About 1/3 full. We were told by one they were closing soon and our dishes of ice cream were to go. Chairs were fencing off the center area and a mop was being swung around in an uninviting manor. We hung in the foyer for a while eating some of our... More

The flavors were a bit on the crazy side but we both found something we wanted to try and glad we did.Thought it was very good and the waffle cones seemed fresh and great too.

I applaud Mallard's for their creativity in coming up with unusual flavors, but I usually find the taste a bit diluted. I'm usually really excited to go in but a bit disappointed by the actual product. It's still a fun place and a treat after a dinner downtown - I just wish the ice cream had a bit more flavor.

It's tucked away and a little hard to get to but it was worth the trip. Parking meters were a hassle. They have really good ice cream and lots of flavors to choose from. You can have it in a sundae with anything you can think of on top. Very busy even in the middle of the day so that... More

There is nothing not to like about this Bellingham landmark. They make their own ice cream, in a wide and ever changing palate of flavors. One of the best ice creams I have had anywhere. Nice ambience as well, with both indoor and outdoor seating, and takeout options.
