After finishing the Coastal trail, we went for ice-cream in a renovated lighthouse. People are attracted by it. Their ice-cream was delicious and it wasn't expensive at all. We ate it outside with the sun shining on us. I enjoyed the inside of this place....More

This is a great little ice cream parlour with some magnificent views of the ocean. The community runs the shop and the proceeds go toward running the lighthouse.

Ice cream was good but the location is very cool as it's served in the lighthouse! There is a good deck to sit on and enjoy the view

Stopped for ice cream 15 mins late the one day and the lady was already locking up. We came back the next day and enjoyed a Moosetracks ice cream. Good portion. Sadly no sugar comes just plain as she doesn't have a lot of space....More

Driving by the lighthouse on our way to lunch we decided that on our way out we had to stop at the lighthouse and get an ice cream cone for dessert. We all thought that this was a great way to utilize an old lighthouse....More

Nice setting, more ice cream flavors would be nice. The lighthouse was charming and the Bay a nice place to enjoy a ice cream cone.
