Quaint ice cream place with lots of Coca-Cola decor. Fresh-made waffle cones, good ice cream selection, nice employees. Be prepared for a line, even in April! It's not cheap, but it's worth it.

Awesome ice cream choices, including local Cape Cod options. Very friendly! From waffle cones made when you order to shakes and different sizes to select, it's surprising how many choices there are.

Description
Come taste "quite possibly the best ice cream you ever tasted". We constantly are winning awards for our old fashioned ice cream served with old fashioned service to match. Offering everything possible with ice cream. From "The Worlds Smallest Cone" to Frappes, Malts and Sundaes to the gigantic "Arctic Circle Sundae" with 20 scoops of ice cream

If you have never had one of our "straight from the iron, baked & rolled" waffle cones you have missed out on one of the greatest ice cream experiences. Just ask any one that has!
