We have been going to the Sundae School for over 30 years when vacationing annually in Orleans, MA. It continues to be the best! Favorites choices are Nauset Mud, Coffee Oreo, Grasshopper and Peach to name just a few. After a Cape Cod League baseball game, it is a tradition to stop at the Sundae School for a favorite ice...

Every time we visit Orleans, MA we must stop at Sundae School Ice Cream. Great freshly made ice cream served by an always friendly staff. Try the "Ginger" and the "Peach." Delicious!

The sundae school makes their own ice cream and toppings, all delicious. The warm fresh blueberry sauce is a favorite of many, but I always go for the thick rich hot fudge, which is dark chocolatey goodness, served over ginger ice cream, topped with a real Bing cherry. Many people enjoy the real whipped cream or marshmallow sauce on their... More

A classic, small town, ice cream shop with a ton of options! A great stop right after the beach - make sure you have cash with you.

It had been at least ten years since my last visit to Sundae School. I always liked it , but I don't remember it ever being as good as it was today. Two of us are connoisseurs of grape nut ice cream, and they enjoyed it (in waffle cones) very much. One person got a sundae and particularly raved about... More

An absolute must do! Perfect stop on the way back from Nauset beach or anytime! The ice cream is home made and so creamy.

I cannot frequently tell the difference between good ice-cream and great ice-cream - especially from ice cream parlors. But about halfway through my coffee oreo ice-cream, my husband and I were both very much in agreement that this was incredible ice cream. Highly recommend.

Sundae School had a variety of flavors(which includes different special flavors each week). It is reasonably priced and I think it is the best ice cream in all of Cape Cod.

I am a sucker for a spot with history, usually a sign they know what there doing! This place had the history and the food, or rather ice cream, to back it up! My wife got the peanut butter Sunday and the peanut butter sauce was spectacular! I had the moose tracks on a chocolate waffle cone and it was... More
