A visit to Edgartown would not be complete without a stop at Mad Martha's. Simply stated, the ice cream is wonderful. Great variety and marvelous creamy taste. I would give it an excellent rating except for the fact that the service is slow and consequently the line is often very long. The staff is pleasant and tries hard, but the set up is inefficient. All takeout pints and quarts are hand packed when they are ordered. This is time consuming and labor intensive. I have often wondered why they don't get some pints and quarts of vanilla and chocolate ice cream packed in the morning when they are not busy so that they would be available during busy times.

Also, be forewarned, the ice cream is expensive.

If you want good ice cream with generous scoops, visit Mad Martha's on Martha's Vineyard. My favorite shop is in Edgartown. Been going there for years. Where else can you enjoy Sinful Chocolate or order the Pig Trough by saying, "Oink"? Sit down and listen to the jute box or stand up and walk around outside. Either way you'll enjoy your ice cream. The only time I didn't experience a line was this Fourth of July when there was rain and wind from Hurricane Arthur. Please note...that didn't keep us from paying a visit to Mad Martha's. In Seattle it's Molly Moon ice cream. In MV it's Mad Martha's.

What's to say. It was really good ice cream. Lots of flavor options. Heaping portions. A nice stop after a walk around town or a trip to Chappy.

And perhaps not just once! Their selection is great and it all tastes wonderful. Plus Mad Martha's is an island tradition. Going once is because you gotta; going back again is on you.
