We always choose CJ on our bar harbor trips. Although the line can be long in the evening- it does move fast. They only take cash. Our favorite this year was blueberry soft serve

We got the gelato and it was absolutely delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is a very nice ice cream shop. Our dogs were allowed to come in while we ordered and sit on the patio too. We would definitely return.
