“The Best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

If you like ice cream, come here. Try to avoid coming after 6pm because you'll wait in line. Great service by really hard working young people...outstanding homemade (right there) ice cream in numerous flavors, including local favorites...changing flavors on the board...as well as all the regulars. Not cheap, but worth it. For adult ice cream enthusiasts!

“Better than Ben & Gerry's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Small, quaint ice cream shoppe, with outside seating. Homemade ice cream made on the premises, the cranberry ice cream is the best (white ice cream with plump, slightly sweet/tart ruby red cranberries). Like all the flavors the ice cream is creamy and delicious. Another favorite is the chocolate hard yogurt with peanut butter cups.

“Not the best around”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Nauset Ice Cream is a very pleasant place and you want to like the product, but it just isn't great. It isn't bad, but why waste the calories--and the money--for just average ice cream.

“So Yummy, So Fresh, So Flavorful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

For the past several years my family has made Nauset Ice Cream our favorite spot after visiting Nauset Light Beach at dusk. Just walking through the door, the overall aroma of freshness permeates the senses. The line frequently snakes around the ice cream counter where one can peer into glass showcases while making a flavor decision. It is never a long wait to place your order with friendly, hardworking college students. The portions are extra-generous and scooped high. A kiddie sized cup suits me just fine. All the ice cream is homemade and delicious and included in them are real chunks of goodness, i.e. coconut, orange-pineapple, ginger (my favorite), rum raisin, pistachio, just to name a few. There are also all of the standard flavors - vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, etc. There is also a cooler of free water available, if one desires.

“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Oh my gosh, the best ice cream. I am stuck on the ginger! Flavorful not just ginger in a vanilla ice cream. Always glad to see the awning go up.
