This is an Ice Cream shop that has homemade ice cream. The names of the flavors are indicative of the area and the scoops are huge, they of course have malts, milkshakes and sundays. It is not a very large space and although there are a few little tables with chairs, the store is always busy during the season so be prepared to stand in line for a few minutes, and then take your ice cream outside and sit at one of the many picnic tables and people watch.

Just a quick review. Walking around town on a weeknight, in October, at a about 8:00 PM, it appeared the town had shut down for the night... Until we came upon DEICF.

Great ice cream at prices that were very reasonable...Surprisingly so.The staff were friendly and there was a slow but steady stream of customers even at the late weeknight hour...And everybody was happy...Late weeknight, Boothbay, vacation ice cream... You have to be happy about that.

Visit this Downeast gem and you won't be disappointed.

So many choices of flavors of just delicious ice cream. You can sit and enjoy the huge sundaes etc., inside, or wander the area with as big a cone as you decide. It's all so good.

Small little corner ice cream shoppe in downtown Boothbay Harbor. The line always extends out the door. My favorite is Peanut Butter Fantasy! My mouth starts to water just thinking about it. EVERY flavor is delicious. Prices are terrific, and the Kiddie size is big enough!! I see people getting a 4 scooper, and I don't really know how they eat the whole thing. A must stop while in Boothbay.
