The Cape is loaded with great ice cream shops but this is my favorite. The almond joy is the best. Big chunks of chocolate, whole roasted almonds, in a coconut ice cream...what could be better.

A nice ice cream shop with creamy ice cream. It's a small place but they usually have two lines going during popular times. Also have seating outside. Their ice cream tastes homemade and the have wonderful flavored.

We stopped in one afternoon with my grandmother and she ordered the rum raisin, I got chocolate chip and double chocolate chip and a hot fudge sundae. Wow, it was creamy and delicious. This is a great place to stop for ice cream in Orleans.

Many flavors. Banana is one of my favorites. Good hot fudge. Lots of ice cream treats, lattes and frappes. Also vegan version.

The people who work here are nice, it is open reasonably late, and the ice cream is very good, made on the premises. They also have soft serve. I would highly recommend the 'dirt bomb" ice cream, which tastes exactly like the famous "dirt bomb" muffins that they invented next door at the Cottage Street Bakery. Great!

We were obligated to try as we know one of the owners sons. That said the ice cream is very good- really creamy. Our children thought it was the best and that says it all.

Coffee Oreo-yes. Peanut butter- yes. Dairy free options that are delicious-yes. Keep saying we should try another place. Too good to Take the risk. And even though it was after closing - they still served the late stragglers coming in.
