This is a awesome place to take family, my grandchild loves it when we take him to mallards, he enjoys looking at the huge collection of rubber ducks they have and of course the ice cream. He gets strawberry every time . But all the ice cream is fantastic. You will not find the unique flavors they make anywhere else.... More

We've been coming here about once a month for what must be ten years, now. A true original, this ice cream shoppe features home-made flavors that range from the classic (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry) to the exotic (rose, coriander, White Russian). They have non-dairy sorbet options, make sundaes and banana splits, and even have the "Indecision Scoop", which allows you to... More

An eclectic mix of flavors, some stay on the board all (most) of the time and others are available here and now and maybe never again. They offer free samples to taste the flavors - maple bourbon, ghost pepper lemonade, cinnamon, lavender... But, they only take cash so hit the ATM before going. They have on inside the store and...

We go here on many occasions and they are always so friendly and have such great variety. Parking is a little challenging at times but well worth the effort.

The menu has many different flavors that all come from local farms. The staff is very friendly and it's a great place to hang out for dessert....You might want to have dessert first! ;-)

No trip to Bellingham would be complete if you are a fan of ice cream, especially the more unusual flavors. Sirena Gelato was recommended as well, but we didn't have the time to visit two ice cream/gelato places, and this store was close to the whacky, crazy Cresswell Boggs store that the kids loved shopping in. I got the Coriander... More

The last time we were ther (summer 2016) there was a very long line. It moved steadily and the wait was well worth it.

First, the ice cream is great and they give samples. Which is nice since some flavors are unique. Second, cash only. Super nuisance. Plus they have a small attitude about it. Clearly that comes down from mgmt, seriously, just take debit.
