I really need to let them know that the past two times I went, we ordered milkshakes and the milk was sour. I don't think I can go anymore and take a chance. Bummer because they were the closest to me.

Cute hidden away ice cream shop with interesting flavors. It's my dessert after visiting the Seafood Center next door.

It's a beautiful day in Maine. What a better way to mourn the end of summer but with ice cream. We've passed by many times but opted for Dairy Queen. Something just drew us here and now I can't imagine ice cream anywhere else. All the ice cream is home made and the flavors are unique. Spicy mango! Yes! I... More

Incredibly delicious ice cream, just a bit unique, always delicious! The adult coffee ice cream is unbelievable - makes all other coffee ice cream pale in comparison. Literally...the coffee flavor is bold but not overpowering. My only wish is that they were open year round!!

Arguably one of the top 10 ice cream parlors in Maine. Off Rt. One and kind of out of the way, but ice cream is all freshly made with fantastic ingredients and no corn syrup etc.. Fresh, flavorful and fun and readonibly priced.

Ice cream was good at a decent price. I had the butter maple pecan and it was delicious. My wife had the coffee heath and wasn't a big fan only because it didn't have a good coffee flavor. But I thought it was alright. All in all it was pretty good.

Thanks for this lovely review. If you happen back, I hear the Adult Strength Coffee is pretty great. So glad to know you enjoyed the Butter Maple Pecan. (I chastised my shop manager earlier in the year for slightly modifying the recipe, yet all I've heard are great unsolicited responses.

So, waiting in line, we listened as the solo employee told folks in front they always work alone. This ownership has no clue, thinking they are saving labor $$ when they could easily double or triple sales with more hands. The ice cream itself is delicious but over priced at 2.5 scoops as a large for 5 bucks... Plenty of... More

Dear Jim, Thank you for your review! The wait is the drawback, for sure. Sometimes, there is a 20-minute stretch of time where customers have to wait ten minutes or more for ice cream. I could put another server on for an hour, at $8 or $9 an hour, but it is very challenging to find a work-hungry individual residing... More

No other ice cream will do now. It is creamy with imaginative choices as well as the old favorites. Very generous servings and nice people too. Thank you for supporting the Animal Welfare Society! I'm a fan from now on!

The best ice cream (I've tried 4 flavors plus a malted shake) I've ever had. and the hot fudge sauce is amazing. You can also purchase hand-packed containers of the home made ice cream and fudge sauce to take home. Theresa is an ice cream ARTIST!
