This is a great place for lovers of ice cream, dozens of fun flavors as well as classics. The staff was very helpful and patient as they let us sample to narrow our choices. You can choose multiple flavors so between the four us in our party we were able to indulge in many different experiences from dark chocolate to... More

Three words: BEST. ICE CREAM. EVER. (Ok, that's four, but you get the idea.) Flavors are deep and true. I have never tasted such incredibly rich chocolate ice cream. Creamy and intense. Prices were reasonable considering how large the portions were. Well worth a trip if you are in the area.

Ice cream good but not as good as Italian gelato. Flavors can be a little too busy with ingredients. A little too expensive. Some servers can be very distracted and not focus in their job.

Called in here whilst in the Boston area after reading the reviews and was not disappointed, this is ice cream heaven, served by angels! It was gone half eight at night, just before closing, so they must have had about enough of it by then but were cheerful and helpful, in spite of that. I managed to restrict myself to... More

The ice cream here is the real deal. Only the best ingredients are used - and you can tell from the Belgian chocolate. Diets are doomed.

I am so lucky- I live down the street from RTBC! I actually east LESS ice cream since they opened up, because every other ice cream now pales in comparison so I do ntp eat it. Once you try RTBC, you will not be able to eat another brand. Worth every calorie. (also, my husband is a coffee snob and... More

This little place isn't far from where I live and I've detoured off route 2 a dozen times when ice cream seemed a very good idea. Lately though it's been their affogato that drags me in. Sweet cream ice cream on top of espresso is about a perfect pick me up after a day of errands or an earlier meal... More

A welcomed shop to the little village of West Concord. Amazing Ice Cream flavors as well as the old stand bys with a little flare. My favorites are Cinnamon and pepermint during the holiday season , ohhh and the salted caramel. Crepes, paninis and rich hot chocolate. on a warm spring day sit on the little front porch and watch... More

As a Concord resident RTBC has become our go to place for ice cream, desserts and coffee. It's a friendly fun place that makes going out special. Excellent, creative ice cream flavor and their ice cream Cakes are terrific.
