We have been feasting on ice-cream at Sunday School for years!! Friendly knowledgeable staff and delicious ice-cream -- always!!! We love that it has remained pretty much the same over the years; atmosphere, lines forming outside, cute seating area, and delicious ice cream.

First I never had ice cream melt so fast in the shade anywhere. My son, a chef in Boston, said they had a lot of stabilizer in it. What a mess my hands were. Second I had a special of the day, coffee heath, which would have been delicious had the girl cleaned the scoop from another special they offered,... More

I had the small sundae, which they put in a small plastic cup. By the time they handed it to me and I walked to my car close by the main entrance, the ice cream was melting out of control over the edges and over everything. I couldn't really enjoy it because I try to eat it fast so it... More

Small shop easily handled our 7-person group with typical Cape-friendly service. Ice cream is one of those great debates -- this isn't our "family favorite" place, but it's very good.

Have to lover their ice cream. There can be long lines but it is totally worth it! We always go with a big group and as you walk in you start giving them your order and they never mess it up even though its never written down. Sums up Cade Cod living beautifully.

You can't beat a cold milkshake on a hot day. There are lots of flavors to choose from and it tastes homemade. Clean and friendly. Just by Nauset Beach in East Orleans.
