“Interesting flavors- although not always the best tasting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I applaud Mallard's for their creativity in coming up with unusual flavors, but I usually find the taste a bit diluted. I'm usually really excited to go in but a bit disappointed by the actual product.

It's still a fun place and a treat after a dinner downtown - I just wish the ice cream had a bit more flavor.

“Niece and I enjoyed our ice cream.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

It's tucked away and a little hard to get to but it was worth the trip. Parking meters were a hassle. They have really good ice cream and lots of flavors to choose from. You can have it in a sundae with anything you can think of on top. Very busy even in the middle of the day so that tells you the place is good. I'd recommend you stop in for your favorite flavor.

“Outstanding home made ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

There is nothing not to like about this Bellingham landmark. They make their own ice cream, in a wide and ever changing palate of flavors. One of the best ice creams I have had anywhere. Nice ambience as well, with both indoor and outdoor seating, and takeout options.

“Great Stop in Downtown B'ham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Stopped here with our 3 boys (ages 15, 12, and 9) - perfect break after a long hike. Great homemade ice cream flavors. Large area with open windows onto a nice street in downtown Bellingham.

“Great Ice Cream!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Basil, coconut with chocolate chunks, peppermint, fresh apricot and cream, blackberry cheesecake, all fantastic! Other flavors and dairy free options. Flavors change as do the fresh local options are available. Only wish there were better seating options but there is still plenty of room. A must go downtown.
