Best Ice Cream of the entire 10 day vacation, and I love ice cream. They are on the pricey side, but who else offers a flight of ice cream flavors? Everything I tasted was fantastic, if you are in the area, avoid the other places on Main St. and come here, you will be glad you did.

Okay, we go to Bar Harbor every year. I don't know why we never got around to trying this ice cream until this past summer. Probably because there are a lot of ice cream places to try in Bar Harbor. All I have to say, is YUM! Don't miss this place. There are 2 locations and we tried both. The... More

I guess After reading the reviews here we came with the highest expectations. Maybe that was the problem. This place is ok. Good ice cream. Not too special or unforgettable. The service is wonderful.

We walked through Bar Harbor and saw many places offering ice cream. This place had the most unique flavors of any. As usual we always get a couple of different flavors in our cup. I kept with a butter theme with butter beer and butter mint. My wife had something with Saigon cinnamon in it. We took our ice creams... More

We had great ice cream 3 times this visit to Bar Harbor. Bay of Figs, Caramelized Pear and Toasted Coconut were so good.We always get ice cream treats at just this place when in the area.

Not the biggest,not the least expensive,but you won't find an ice cream shop that serves a more flavorful ice cream. All home made,in small batches just down the street,you can actually see it from the main street. Let's see...We had: Boiled Coffee,German Chocolate,that looked almost black,and the best of all....Fig.. Every flavor was very bold,and you knew what it was.... More

You should definitely check this place out to find unique flavors of ice cream. The environment is basic, but the ice cream is delish!

Simply avoid the others & experience this delicious ice cream! They also have a place on Main Street. There are several ice cream shops in Bar Harbor, many in more prominent locations, do yourself a favor & try mount desert ice cream. You will be delighted!

We went every night of our 4-day stay in Bar Harbor. The ice cream was great quality (organic milk, cream, eggs, etc), very creamy with interesting flavors. I found the ice creams better than the sorbets - the sorbets were on the icy side. The tiny store was usually crowded but the line moved quickly. Note that there are more... More

We returned 3 times during our stay. The milkshakes are the BEST! Real ice cream with no chemicals and fabulous flavors to choose! A REAL GEM!
