Great ice-cream in a perfect location. Canal is one minute away or play corn hole toss and view the fish, rabbits and turtles.

Wonderful ice cream with a long list of flavors and creations from which to choose; worth the wait in line, although I felt sorry for the two servers who were doing it all. Would suggest some more staff, especially on busy summer evenings.More

After visiting the canal area, 4 of us decided to have a late afternoon ice cream treat. It was our 1st visit here and we were not disappointed! So many flavors to choose from, we had a difficult time deciding. The ice cream was excellent...More

We stop here occasionally as we live right up the street. We are a little spoiled with a fantastic homemade ice cream place up the street from our primary home so find this place about average / typical. They do give a fair portion and...More

This is a frequent stop for ice cream during our frequent visits to the Cape. The ice cream is good, pricing is fair and the service is good (they understand the concept or staffing multiple windows to service customers quickly)

We love this place. Every time we leave the cape, we stop here and get frappes and they are amazing. All the employees are super nice. We love visiting with the turtles and the bunnies.

I REALLY wanted to like this Sandwich ice cream spot. The owners have done so much to make it a fun, family-friendly place! There's a shady lawn with comfy seating, and activities including corn hole, climbing trees, a fish (and turtle) pool and interesting animals...More

You're spoilt for choice with lots and lots if flavours. I chose the boardwalk mud flavour thinking that it would be something chocolatey and it sure was. Great lumps of chocolate in it with nuts and sauce too. Amazing, and large portions!

The patient scoopers are always willing to describe their “original” flavors. Plenty of standby flavors too. Generous servings. Park like setting with grass and picnic tables and lawn games. Great for families or anyone who wants a break going on or off Cape. Delish!More
