Schoolhouse Ice Cream in Harwich is a good place to grab dessert after dinner, a long day out exploring Cape Cod on the boat, or relaxing at the beach. They have a great selection of homemade ice cream and will definitely not disappoint.

This is a nice little ice cream place that has lots of interesting flavors to choose from. It has indoor and outdoor seating (on the patio or porch), so you can enjoy your treat outdoors, but in the shade.

Ice cream is generally gluten free as long as there are no chunks of cookie, brownie, etc. They have plenty of flavors at Schoolhouse that are yummy without added gluten ingredients.
