“Don't over eat at dinner, save room for THIS ice cream.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Very good Ice cream, worth the ride into Orleans, not far from the town (5 mins). All home made great flavors. Cookie Dough to die for. There maybe a long line but it moves fast. Will be stopping back again and again. Diets can wait until you go home. Good stuff !!!

“Every year, the Sundae School is a destination stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Yes, there are many places to get ice cream on Cape Cod, many quite good. But since we've been renting a cottage near East Orleans Nauset Beach for years and years, our heart belongs to the tiny ice cream shop called the Sundae School that serves up rich sweet creamy treats. College kids cheerfully fill your ice cream orders and the often long line moves along nicely except when people can't make up their minds... And who can blame them with such wonderful choices? I, however, always order the same thing... A hot fudge sundae with ginger ice cream, real whipped cream and a fresh dark bing cherry on top.

“Best ice cream around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This was my first time at this location. I've been to the one in Dennis a number of times. Sundae School has the BEST ice cream around. It's handmade. They frequently have different flavors. Their sundae's are made with REAL whip cream, they whip it on location. They also use real fresh cherries! You can't beat it.

“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

From the sundaes to the single cones, everything tasted delicious. We stopped twice during our 4 days in East Orleans and the service was friendly and quick.

“Sorry, but this is THE BEST ICE CREAM IN ALL OF NEW ENGLAND!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My family house is just down the street, and we've been enjoying the ice cream (and the wonderful kids who work there--please fill their tip jars!) for over 25 years. Honestly, this is really the best ice cream anywhere! The long lines at 10:00 PM certainly attest to that. Stop by on your way to Nauset Beach, or on the way back, you won't be sorry!
