I am an ice cream snob. I'd heard about this place and it was our final trip before we left the outer cape. I was not disappointed with my ice cream at all! It was pretty crowded when we were there and the seating is tight. A great find!

Cash only. Many homemade flavors, some of which lack flavors. Seating outside may be available. When there's a line inside, it flustered the staff who didn't keep track of who was next. Busy parking lot.

There is a line for a reason. Best homemade ice cream on the Cape. The cranberry ice cream is a favorite but so isn't the rum raisin. Line moves fast but it is hard to make a choice. You need to go every night to try all the flavors.

I grew up in Eastham and people ask me all the time for suggestions on where to go when they visit. Nauset Ice cream is always one of the first things I tell them. It's all homemade and fresh, much better than the guys from VT who have set up across the street, you can buy their ice cream in... More

My son had an allergy and they are always cautious and accommodating. It's our fave ice cream on the outer cape. Cash only!

I had the Purple Cow, as I wanted to try a unique flavor. The ice cream flavor was good, but overall it was way too sweet with the chocolate chips and white chocolate chunks. I usually have ice cream multiple times a week and this one made me a little sick from how sweet it was. I think it would... More

There's a line out the door, and for good reason! Very good ice cream, generous portions, and friendly service that makes you want to tip. (Don't let your eyes get bigger than your stomach ... it's pretty easy here.)

Party of 5. Visited on our last evening on the cape. We came in at 9:55 pm after a late dinner, 5 minutes before closing. The place was still bustling with ice cream goers. several employees were there to happily greet us. Ice cream was great, we could tell it was home made. Very fast service with reasonable prices. Consider... More
