They have some of the best flavors that you can think of. Came to visit family and wanted the people I brought to Bellingham to taste what I thought was the best ice cream I have tasted in a long time. Flavors rotate somewhat and seems they have some regular flavors. Great taste and friendly staff.

Go there mainly for an "ice cream cone" ... good quality in a nice area ... would like to see a few more "favs", like peppermint, always available!

People rave about this ice cream so of course I wanted to try it. The line was out the door. The flavors are all very different. There wasn't anything I considered a normal flavor so I tried black pepper ice cream, it was not to my taste. Rather expensive.

Mallard Ice Cream & Cafe is on Railroad Avenue in downtown Bellingham. It isn't quite in Old Town, but it does carry the mixture of grunge, antique and new. The setting is a mix of family fun, single silliness and an opportunity to just people watch while eating the most locally unusual flavors of ice cream, yogurts sherberts and beverages.... More

Best place in town for late nite ice cream cones with the best LOCAL ice cream in town. Good prices, good service and very, very clean. Always a wonderful time.

Mallards is the best ice cream in town hands down. Great flavors, extreme quality, and reasonable prices.

I like that there is plenty of seating room, though most people just buy and go. The staff is friendly and don't mind letting you taste many different ice cream flavors.

Title says it all - if you need ice cream, you need to go to Mallards. Garage doors open up in summer and the crowd spills out onto the sidewalk.
