Description: Come taste "quite possibly the best ice cream you ever tasted". We constantly are winning awards for our old fashioned ice cream served with old fashioned service to match. We offer everything possible with ice cream. From "The Worlds Smallest Cone" to Frappes, Malts and Sundaes to the gigantic "Arctic Circle Sundae" with 20 scoops of ice cream.

“Our grandchildren love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Wonderful ice cream. They are willing to sell even adults the children's cones. Their prices are the best on the Cape for premium ice cream and they always have coupons around if you can find them. The service is great. The help always has a smile and they are pretty patient with those of us who can't decide what we want and they will let you sample if you aren't quite sure. It is in a little cottage on the Mashpee/Cotuit line and you can miss it if you aren't alert. It is one of our favorite summer destinations.

Thanks so much for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you and your grandchildren over the coming season. Open this weekend and as of 4/13 everyday until Columbus Day. Please ask for Papa Bear so I can say thanks in person.

“A big fan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

I am a big fan of this place.
Girls (boys too!) there are always friendly. Ice creams are of course great!!
Apple ice cream was unusual, but very good. It's worth a try.
