“Delicious ice cream; slow service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We went 2 times to this shop right next to the footbridge in BBH. The ice cream is delicious. The service was very slow, probably because it is so popular, but also the second time we went they were severely short-staffed and were trying to fill complicated orders but they just couldn't keep up. The first time we went was at night, and they were properly staffed because they expected it to be busy. Kudos for that. With the adjustment of additional staff during the daytime, this would be my go-to ice cream shop. Nice picnic tables and view as you lap up your treat!

“Hands down the Best!!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Best ice cream in Boothbay Harbor and in all if Maine in my experience. Their Whoopie Pie ice cream is awesome. Even their yogurts are great. Highest recommendation.

“Last stop before walking the bridge to get back to our hotel”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Right at the foot of the bridge, it was the perfect end to each nite. I love that the waffles are made to order and then cut into bite size pieces before being covered with yummy ice cream and toppings. We tried the other ice cream place more central to the action but their ice cream wasn't worth the crazy long lines! Wannawaf is Fast, super friendly and very tasty!

“Love the cones”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Right at the start of the foot bridge, they have homemade waffle cones, offer numerous options for toppings, and have unique sundaes. A lot of locals were ordering their waffles and we heard they have amazing hotdogs but I wanted ice cream cone.
