This is a must do every summer we visit Ocean Park/OOB. Homemade ice cream, served with a smile. So many wonderful Maine flavours to choose from...try them all!

Nothing fancy but the home made ice cream, which says it all. Try the mocha chip and almond joyous. It's a drive up with nostalgia for baby boomers and older. Buy some to take home too.

Just be grateful a few of these places still exist. If you are going to eat ice cream, eat good ice cream. Seems 20 or so flavors, and good sugar cones. Skip the store bought and have a treat like you had when you were...More
