I liked their flavors much more than any other ice cream place in bar harbor. The store is quite small but does have seating.

Every other day we found ourselves here. They make the best ice cream and we rate other places against Mount Desert Ice Cream wherever we go. Sea Salt Caramel is the best I've had.

Nice place for an ice cream. Wish they had blueberry pie to go with it, maybe next year. Close to Island Explorer pick up and drop off.

This is truly outstanding ice cream. The line can be very long, but if you time it right, it's not too bad. The Dude was amazing, especially with chocolate.

The quality and creativity are wonderful, but the flavor selection was rough. I had a hard time finding a flavor I wanted to eat, but I commend their free spirit.

First I have to say I think of ice cream as one of the major food groups- now saying that I loved the blackstrap banana flavor and my husband got the chocolate chili flavor. I will be going back before I leave Bar Harbor.
