I have been coming to PEI my whole life- how have I not heard of this place??? I cannot believe no one in my family has been raving about this! Amazing hand made ice cream on site. We LOVED all the flavours we tried but...oatmeal cookie and pumpkin chai stood out for me! I will most definitely return next time I am on the island! Location is beautiful with historic significance!More

This is a simply amazing ice cream experience! We were staying at the nearby Boardwalk Inn and learned about Holman’s. The first night we arrived just after it closed so we planned the second night around it. We shared a Spaghetti Sundae. We had ours...made with Salted Carmel ice cream—excellent choice. Yes, it looks like real spaghetti but the red sauce is strawberries, the “meatball” is a chocolate truffle, and the “Parmesan” is grated white chocolate. Not only is it fun and funny—but it tastes amazing! This is one of those “never skip it” choices.More

Wayyyy better than iconic COWS. Service was quick and friendly, servings were generous and selection was amazing! Definitely worth the stop. Plus they have an adorable garden/yard area to sit and enjoys your treat!

Great icecream but since the kids took over they have been short cutting. Smaller scoops and today my waffle cone was not fresh. If you want to do that then reduce the price. Beautiful grounds to sit outside

Home made ice cream was very good. Service was quick even with a lineup. Nice garden area to be able to sit and enjoy your ice cream, would do it again.

Service was fast, efficient and friendly and the ice creams we all had were just amazing. The ice cream parlour is on the ground floor of the original home, which is well maintained and with the upstairs now being converted into air BnB rooms.

One of the best ice cream places I have been to. The history on the walls is amazing. The grounds outside are great to relax in and the fire pit is a nice touch too

Wow! I tried chocolate, and cookies and cream in a waffle cone. The plain chocolate was amazing. Wish I lived closer to try more flavours. My husband had key lime pie and it was great too. The waffle cone is best I’ve had.

We visited for sweet treats obviously - tried 3 ice creams - raspberry cheesecake, cookies and cream and bounty bar - all were very tasty and their homemade waffle cone was very good. Its setup in a historic house and the seating is very cute...giving it an amazing feel and ambiance. Definitely would visit when in area - great for date nights.More

Nothing is better than homemade ice cream. Made in small batches, the menu is always changing. The flavours are amazing. Yesterday we had Salted Carmel and warm apple crisp sundae. These were deeply enjoyed in their garden. This is a must when visiting Summerside!

Best small-batch ice cream, waffle cones and bowls, made-in-house bagged Chocolate English Toffee! We bought a bag after tasting it in an ice cream flavour intending to bring it home but ended up eating every scrumptious piece during our stay in Summerside. We also recommend...ordering The Sampler in order to taste more ice cream flavours. And my favorites? The chocolate (made with dark chocolate) and pistachio (made with finely chopped nuts and no artificial green coloring): magnificent!More

Amazing flavours and dessert options. The waffle cone was the best I’ve ever had - it was a little more crispy and less chewy than others.

Delicious ice cream. I had lemon meringue pie flavor! They also have pretty gardens that you can sit in and eat. We could hear the music from the downtown antique car show while we enjoyed our ice cream.
