Conveniently located at the town end of the pier. Staff is friendly and helpful. You can sit down to eat your ice creme on the public benches right outside the door.

This is the best Gelato I have had. This is even after spending a month in Italy and having gelato from Milano down to Naples and everywhere in between. We went to I Dream of Gelato on the recommendation of a waiter in a restaurant we had had dinner at. He was right in his review.

Wow the gelato is excellent. I had a medium with two flavors coffee and peach Egan which tasted like coconut. It is a little pricy but worth it $3.50 small $450 med and $5.50 large. Do go there if in Provincetown.

Great selection and home made on site. The staff liked to play with us and kid around. We liked that personal interaction. It differentiates this shop from others.

The gelato is so good! They have the most amazing flavors & vegan gelato too. Always a great selection & new flavors every day. The owner & employees couldn't be nicer. Try it, you'll be glad you did! Warning though, it's addictive!
