A great little take-out ice cream shack located just before Hannaford's as you drive into Boothbay Harbor proper. There is plenty of parking, the staff is very friendly, and the ice creams are delicious and huge and cheap.

Hot day, cold ice cream on a Sunday. Life doesn't get any better, The scoops are huge. I got the kids and it was more than I could eat. My husband had the medium and it was equal to 4 scoops at a chain ice cream shop

Sarah's scoops was delicious. The night before my family and I went to Downeast Icecream (#1 on tripadvisor) but this was so much better. My toasted coconut cone was delicious.

So convenient, right on the way into Boothbay. Sarah's looks like a converted chicken coop, but don't let the exterior fool you. Always friendly, experienced young people behind the window.

This is a friendly ice cream stand serving the best ice cream in Maine.....Giffords along with many other offerings. There is something for everyone. Servings are more than generous. There are picnic tables under the trees and plenty of parking spaces. Giffords ice cream is the best we have tasted and this is the place to get it.
