This has been our go to place for an ice cream treat for years. It's funky and fun inside with wonderful flavors of great ice cream. Definitely best in Bellingham.

This is our favorite place to come for ice cream. The flavors are so unique, and the service is always friendly. All we have to do is say "Quack, quack" and my girls come running. Mint Oreo, lavender, and just plain chocolate are favorites at our house. Don't forget your cash! It's cash/check only.

Pick how many scoops, what flavors and what kind of cone. Or go with an indecisive then go for the single scoop made of two flavors of your choice. Delicious 8ce cream with very interesting flavors :)

It doesn't have to be HOT to enjoy stopping by and treating yourself to a scoop (or two?) of delicious housemade Mallard Ice Cream. Probably the most trouble you'll have is deciding which of the innovative flavors to try. Hmmm, Cardomom? Cumin? Cocoanut and Rum...decisions, decisions! Prices are reasonable for a rich-tasting, hand-crafted ice-cream, and sitting in the amusingly decorated... More

There was huge throng of people getting ice cream last night- so we figure it would be good, and maybe a little hard to get in. It was great, and they cranked it out quickly. I tried three flavors, all drop-dead amazing! As good as ice cream gets. Which is pretty good!

We stopped in here based on the recommendation of a friend. We had just eaten a big dinner, so we all had a very small portion of ice cream, just to experience the place. The ice cream had such a wonderful creamy texture and outstanding flavor! They offered some interesting flavor choices like avocado! We ordered more traditional ones, though,... More

I don't eat dairy so a trip with the fam to an ice cream shop is always a total downer for me but this place rocked! I love the unique variety of flavors that made the experience fun for the kids but what made my night was that they had non dairy, non boring, flavors! I have loved green tea... More

Visiting a friend in Bellingham. We stopped at Mallards for an ice cream snack. Great flavor variety and options. I taste tested several unusual flavors and loved them all. Hand made ice cream with fresh ingrediants, you can't pick wrong. Relaxed, fun atmosphere full of happy people. One table had a board game going on. Also they have a fun... More
