Whenever I visited Concord, I used to visit Bedford's rural location. Now that it's closed, I took a chance and risked the tourist traffic to see their in-town operation. Aside from an occasional chance to watch a passing railroad train, this location is no where near as scenic as the original, but the ice cream is still delicious and the... More

We used Trip Advisor to find this place while visiting Minute Man National Park. They have great ice cream, both hard and soft. I tried the Green Monster which was mint with fudge and brownie. The kids size is more than enough and it hit the spot. This was a great place after a long day walking around the park.

I've heard a lot about Massachusetts ice cream stands being a big thing, and now I know that they are also talking about the portions! For about $4 I had a "small" ice cream that in reality was the size of a typical double-scoop. I had forgotten the recommendation given to me before I went to get the kiddie size.... More

The place is not big on ambience and seemed to be pretty much run by teenagers, but the ice cream was plentiful and delicious. Kids size is plenty big for most people! I got monster mash--pumpkin with Oreos and chocolate. Very delicious. I would definitely go again for a quick treat.

Its hard to choose between this and the other great ice cream shop in West Concord --both winners--but Bedford Farms frozen yogurt is unbeatably delicious. Big portions. Atmosphere is somewhere between neighborhood folksy and needs charm. A few tables inside, 2 benches in the parking lot, seating is nothing special.I like the board listing staffers favorite combinations. A bit expensive... More

Their flavor pairings are unique (look at the wall above the door for descriptions!) and they aren't stingy with the samples. The Green Monster was yummm and the serving sizes are very, very big. Would definitely go again!

As many other reviewers have mentioned, this place is the bomb. If you have a craving or hankering for a little ice cream, this here's the place. Their menu includes homemade ice cream and frozen yogurts and sorbets. They also have milk shakes and freezes. We make a stop here at least every other week and have never been disappointed... More

Best ice cream in Concord Tons of flavors to choose from and they are all delicious. Kids love it and you'll see lots of grown ups taking a stroll to get a treat as well.
