Can you open a shop near me?!

I'm from an area where people take their ice cream seriously. The national chain places are almost nonexistent back home, and everyone has a personal favorite among the local shops. If this place were in MA, I'd go there every weekend all year long. Simple but rich flavors, delicate crunchy... read more

Ice cream for 4 for less than $12...and it's really GOOD ice cream. Decent selection of flavors, and the waffle cones are yummy. A single is 3 scoops of your choice of flavors. A great find.

We chose the 3 small scoops in a waffle cone and thought we'd gone to heaven. The scoops weren't my definition of small and the three flavors I chose: praline pecan, wolf tracks and peanut butter chocolate were to die for. I was impressed by the way they handled the crowds, taking groups instead of individual people's orders, making the... More

This is the friendliest ice cream shop ever. They get many visitors who are in Coupeville for a day, and many locals. The owner is welcoming to all. Portions are generous, and a good assortment of flavors. If it's hot, expect a line. He posts a sign on the outside railing with instructions on how to order and flavors. Deciding... More

You want ice cream? This is the place to go! For a small store, they have a lot of flavors! But be prepared to wait a bit as the line can go out the door. The staff is very friendly and helpful

Had to wait in line but, worth the wait! What an operation, they are really busy during the too brief hours they are open.... But, it's quite amazing to see how fast the line moves!! Great people working the counter but, be ready with your order or else!! The ice cream is to die for, rich and creamy without being... More

We ordered a "single" ice cream cone (which is 3 small scoops) in a waffle cone and it was only $3. We like that! A "double" is 5 small scoops. Don't recall the price on that. They had our favorite: peanut butter and chocolate. Wait staff was friendly and fast. There weren't a lot of places to sit; maybe they... More

Yum. We just wanted a summer afternoon ice cream and found this place. They not only had inventive favors but the single waffle cone came with three scoops. For $3. Yes, the single was three generous scoops. May have to skip dinner tonight.

Where Seattle's Best Coffee was born. Great ice cream. Very fun place. The servers engage you in fun conversations as the are filling your order and everyone is talking about where they are from. The Seattle's Best Coffee shake is amazing
