You will be sooo happy that you found Morton's Moo. The homemade ice cream t is extremely high quality and the selection of flavors is creative. If ice cream is not what you're craving they have a lovely selection of coffees, expressos and organic tea.l The atmosphere is colorful & upbeat. With a working fireplace, makes this it a year round destination. A very special place in a very special town. Enjoy as often as possible.

This is not the easiest place to find (it's on a side street) but homemade ice-cream in a classy New England old store is a great experience. You can either eat in the store or outside on the porch (not much of a view from the porch but the chairs are nice). It's a great place to come for dessert after a lunch or dinner in town.

Really, this ice cream is great. And here's the best part: generous scoops! I know, this is something we all worry about... However, don't go if you're a cheapskate. The prices are "resort area" prices. About $3 for a one scoop cone. But it's a BIG scoop. And the ice cream is delicious. Great flavors too. Nothing fancy, but really really good. Their Maine Blueberry ice cream is outstanding, the best I've ever tasted. Their strawberry ice cream is good too, and it should be, they picked the berries (LOCALLY) themselves! GIve yourself a treat and splurge on this ice cream. It's the best place to get dessert in Ellsworth. The friendliness of the owners is the cherry on top!

Delightful little ice cream shop with a lovely staff (the owners), Steve and Kirsten, just off of Main St. in Ellsworth, ME. Their blood orange sorbet is fabulous as is their Side Car (more commonly called an affogato, Italian for drowned in), which is their divine coffee bean ice cream drowned in a shot of fine espresso coffee and covered with home-made whipped cream. Enjoy these home-made treats (all ice creams and sorbets are made on site) while conversing with Steve and Kirsten, or seated on their most pleasant front porch bedecked with comfortable seating. What more could be asked for the end to a lovely summer's evening.

Extraordinarilly good ice cream, gellatto and sorbetto made right there. The last time I was there I had rhubarb sorbetto made from rhubard purchased at the local farmers market. For Cinco de Mayo, they served double chocolate ice cream layered with chipolte! Frozen trets ice cream cakes, biscotti, coffee drinks, loose leaf tea... Everything there is amazing as are the owners, a husband-wife team who clearly love what they do. Check it out.
