We had seafood at a nearby restaurant and drove by the Creamery. You have to love it that the sign said "Homemade ice cream ready by 5PM." Great flavors and small tables offer outside seating

This is a must go to place- off the beaten path but so worth it. All home made ice cream with so many different choices everyone will leave with a smile on their faces and bellies!

Have had much better "home made ice cream, was not impressed. Expensive and without much flavor. When I asked for a sample, it was given quite begrudgingly.

If you want the absolutely best ice cream in NJ, this is it. The ice cream is made right there, the owner is a very pleasant woman who does a great job. The staff is always friendly and the menu of ice cream always changes! Try something different! Be adventurous! The are is great, go view the Cape May Canal!... More

love this little hidden gem...from the pretty lavender paint on the outside, to the delicious ice cream on the inside! We don't mind paying 4$ for 2 big scoops of ice cream! You definitely get your money's worth...I especially love that anyone can get a kid cone, which is one, really nice-sized scoop...they aren't cheap...and we appreciated that...the ice cream... More

Delicious homemade ice cream with a variety of flavors to choose from. Prices were a little high, but the quality of the product makes up for it. Will definitely be back!

I love pulling up to this little house with the mini-lights. The flower boxes and plants surrounding the old-fashioned take out window help to make this an experience that children will remember when they are all grown up. The service is lovely. Then, you get the homemade ice cream. You can taste the love and work that has been put... More

Good, fresh, homemade ice cream. The chips were a little crunchy but the ice cream tasted very fresh. It's not up to par with the best natural ice creams that I have tried (in Cape May, Bliss ice cream is better but more expensive). It's served on the side of a house on the way into town, but they have... More

Read reviews so planned to stop by on way out of Cape May. Ice cream was very good. All of us had several different flavors and liked what we had. Odd location, not really near anything, but if you are in area you will be happy you stopped by.

Thank rjjwe
