“Great Ice Cream!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Basil, coconut with chocolate chunks, peppermint, fresh apricot and cream, blackberry cheesecake, all fantastic! Other flavors and dairy free options. Flavors change as do the fresh local options are available. Only wish there were better seating options but there is still plenty of room. A must go downtown.

“Don't miss it!! (Especially if you are an ice cream lover)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

They have a collection of flavors that changes all year round depends on the season and the available local ingredients. This makes every trip to Mallard a different experience. It is in the center of the town and only five minutes walk from the bus station. It's the best option after sightseeing around Bellingham.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The ice cream is really good, though it can be a bit of a wait. They use fresh, local ingredients and have special flavors on their menu.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

I had a double scoop of fresh raspberry and coconut chocolate chunk ice cream on a waffle cone. Loved it. Sat outside and watched the locals stroll on by. I will go back for seconds.

“Good Ice Cream in a Fun Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

As a disclaimer - I'm not much for wild and crazy ice cream flavors. I had the vanilla with chocolate chunks in a sugar cone. The ice cream was good, but not great. The vanilla was your standard vanilla - no bits of bean or complex flavoring - just a nice generic vanilla. The chocolate chunks were tasty. The sugar cone was... a sugar cone. The service was quick and friendly, and the location was convenient as we were already in this part of town for some other sight seeing.
