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.

Had a very tasty crepe, though it took a while as 2 people were ahead of me in line and there was just one person making them. Great place to stop in during a warm day for ice cream as well and to visit the other nice shops here. Be advised - this location is WEST Concord center, not Concord... More

I was wandering around Concord and stumbled in for a latte. It was the best latte I've ever had, and the owner and his staff were very friendly and helpful. I couldn't leave without getting some ice cream to go, and since I wanted a sampling, they allowed me 3 scoops of 3 different ice creams in each dish. Yum!... More

Ice Cream to be cheery about-- worth the calories, worth a treat. Among the very best in Eastern Massachusetts. Plus, West Concord is a great neighborhood to stroll while eating your cone.

Unbelievable staff, great flavors. They make sure the ice cream cakes I order for my daughter are totally gluten free! The owner, if you can catch him there, is truly interested in customer satisfaction. The crepes are mouth watering!
