re-reviewing because this time around, the ice cream was better. especially the frozen custard. the store is right next to the Cape Cod Museum and adjacent cinema and the Playhouse, so it is perfectly sited to get a fast dessert before enjoying the arts.

Lots of decent flavors with servers who are well trained to "get 'em in and get 'em out". Maybe too efficient as two nights in a row, a special request with one server was denied while another server created unique FRAPPEs. Small detail - good ice-cream - not as many chocolate varieties to please me. Ice cream cakes (custom made)... More

One of the BEST ice cream shops on Cape Cod. Some unusual flavors along with all the standards. Rum raison, custard and french raspberry are popular.

This is a bit far for us to go from our home when we want to indulge in some ice cream, but worth the drive. I love the variety they offer.

Delicious treats live here. The young adults behind the counter hustle and the line can be long but goes very quick most nights. Outdoor seating and indoor seating is limited so we usually get it to go. Has been a summer evening staple for the last few years - affordable too!

The ice cream is EXCELLENT, I would go as far to say OUR FAVORITE on The Cape!,, The college kids do an excellent job of keeping the line moving! You can get a seat inside or out. They have added a nice seating area outside in the back! The Frozen Pudding flavor (and Apple Pie) are my favorites!

Always a definite stop when we are at the Cape. Great selections of delicious home made ice cream. Fresh and tasty with new and old selections - especially keeping the Grapenut ice cream. Friendly service, always wanting to check the Tip Jar for College selections...great team spirit. Clean and easy to access. Cannot go wrong... and won't be disappointed.

Three adults two children; four different flavors. Service outstanding. Portions very generous. Flavor to die for. Very busy spot. AC certainly appreciated on a hot June evening.
