Best ice cream on the east end of Long Island by far. So many different flavors it is hard to choose.

Yummy flavors, best soft serve, great location, big parking lot, outside seating. Classic vanilla is one of my favorite soft serve.. but they make the best birthday cake flavor ice cream!

Went to Snowflake Ice Cream Shoppe in Riverhead with my wife her sister and grandmother. The ice cream was rich and flavorful. Not only do they make the ice cream in house but they also make the smoothest soft serve around. I am a sucker for the black raspberry. Food: Hard ice cream, Soft serve, Sorbets, Sherbets, and they make... More

Great tasting soft serve. Creamy and dense unlike Carvel which is pumped full of air. Highly recommended

Kaitlyn and I went to Snowflake for an icecream cone. They are huge. I really enjoyed my vanilla with chocolate sprinkles. Kaitlyn loved hers too. Until we go out East again!

The best sundaes around. Peconic Swamp Thing is delicious and addicting if you are into chocolate. They offer many different flavors of ice cream and each week they have a unique limited edition flavor. The pumpkin ice cream is featured in the fall. They have gluten free cones if you ask for them.

not much you can say other than it is amazing. There is so many choices and you don't know what to have. The mint sprinkles could use more mint but sooo much fun! There are so many people that go so there can be a long line.
