Best ice cream in sandwich

Best Ice cream in sandwich. On hot summer nights it's hard to even get into the parking lot. Real sprinkles & great soft serve, tons of flavors & friendly staff. They offer hot dogs/French fries, never tried them.

Order small sizes because small is really big. They don't cheat on the fudge either. Get water as you will need it to wash the ice cream down.

The best ice cream on the Cape. Generous scoops, lots of flavored, frozen yogurt too. College kids working the counters are friendly and nice. Just a happy place. Love going there!

Soft serve or hard ice cream. As the kids say, The first rites of spring are jumping off the Boardwalk and the opening of Twin Acres

Great ice cream (and soft serve), fast service, beautiful grounds, excellent "NorEaster" (like a Dairy Queen Blizzard only better)... I am sad when they close for the season and look forward to it opening each spring!

We never miss stopping here for ice cream when we go to the Cape. It's been there since I was a kid, and the ice cream is still as good as ever.

The soft serve is absolutely one of the best and my husband and I love soft serve!! Their sizes are incredible and even the child size is quite generous. We wish that it was open even in the winter.

Forget Friendly's...you want Twin Acres. When you are heading down 6A - stop here! It's worth the trip.
