This place has been around for over 50 years and once you visit it you will be back. We have been there many, many times and will be back. The ice cream is homemade and they have lots of flavors. Whether you want a scoop,...More

Our summer home off of Nubble's Light Road is a short, beautiful walk to Brown's. Their ice cream is fresh and delicious! We love taking a walk to Brown's at Dusk when the views of the ocean and cliffs are fantastic!!

My son and I went here after visiting Neddick Lighthouse and we enjoyed the gingerbread ice cream. A small line and area to sit with beautiful views,

So sad to see Browns Ice Cream has gone out of business it was one of those must type places you needed to stop if in the area or around the Nubble Light - like life - nothing lasts forever !

Brown's went out of business during the summer of 2015. It was an institution in York, near the Cape Neddick Lighthouse. Ice cream scoops and variety were expansive.

The ice cream is good - nothing very special though. Prices are VERY HIGH. Location is definitely a plus given its proximity to Nubble Light. But the prices and the crowd detract from its over-all appeal.

Brown's has relocated to a spot nearby and is now known as Dunne's Ice Cream. Same fabulous ice cream. Located next door to the Nubble Light. Lots and lots of flavors. Look forward to my daily trip to Brown's every summer!

The new name is DUNNS---fantastic! The small cone is enough for 3 people!!! For $4.99, the value far exceeds the cost. DUNNS has more flavors than I thought existed. Enjoy your ice cream while viewing a spectacular view of the Nubble Lighthouse.

Great Ice Cream place that has long lines in the summer, but truly worth the wait. Everytime we are in York, we always end up here. Kids love it...
