Friendly, generous, and the most delicious ice cream we have on the Cape - very creamy, tasty and not too sweet. I try all the home-made ice cream places and always return here. The servers are so pleasant and the owner Mark is like your favorite jovial uncle. And I'm so happy to report that he has kept his prices... More

I have been there with children and elderly clients; they all love it. The ice cream is home made, and the servings are substantial.

One word: YUMMMMM!!!! My husband and I went here as a weekend treat, and we were immediately surprised by how large the menu was; I don't think I've ever seen such a vast option of ice cream flavors! They have the typical ice cream cone options, but they also have a plethora of sundae choices, frappes, shakes...and all sorts of... More

We always go here, every time we visit our son on Cape Cod. The ice cream is delicious, as you will find out. My favourite is, "Moose tracks," with Reece's Pieces inside. although my husband always gets a quart of, "Very vanilla," to take home. Nothing is too much trouble for Mark, (Daddy Bear) the owner and his daughter, "Baby... More

Mark's homemade ice cream is fantastic! Homemade (to order) waffle cones and bowls are better...better yet is his commitment to the local community.!

We frequently visit the Polar Cave and it is a staple in the town. Along with great homemade waffle cones the other menu items are worth the venture. The owner gives back to the community and has a year round presence! A must do in Mashpee!

We go to Polar Cave all the time with Cape visitors and friends on the Cape. Best ice cream and for seniors and little ones, they offer .50 cent cones and $1.00 baby sundaes. Although, the waffle cones are to die for.

Description
Come taste "quite possibly the best ice cream you ever tasted". We constantly are winning awards for our old fashioned ice cream served with old fashioned service to match. Offering everything possible with ice cream. From "The Worlds Smallest Cone" to Frappes, Malts and Sundaes to the gigantic "Arctic Circle Sundae" with 20 scoops of ice cream

If you have never had one of our "straight from the iron, baked & rolled" waffle cones you have missed out on one of the greatest ice cream experiences. Just ask any one that has!
