Fresh baked waffle cones and bowls and awesome ice cream. The staff's enthusiasm is infectious. The staff is really excited about the ice cream, even in winter. Then, as I was struggling to hold my hot cone and cold ice cream and take a selfie,...More

nothing like home made icecream in a warm freshly made sugar cone. Until I found this place I drove to Centerville or Yarmouth for cones. No need. Place is great!

My favorite part is the homemade waffle cones made right in front of you and served warm!!! Now that's a great way to eat ice cream. They have a lot of flavor options and the service is very good. Also outdoor seating available.

Great ice cream. Friendly staff. Lots of choices. Best on the Cape in my opinion. Small shop with a couple of outside tables. Never a disappointment. Would highly recommend.

Enjoyed this treat after a day of sightseeing in Sandwich. Wide variety of flavors. Excellent assortment of sizes of dishes, cones and sundaes. Warm waffles also. Delicious hot fudge and toppings. "Scoopers" were very friendly and accommodating especially considering that they have no air conditioning....More

Description
Come taste "quite possibly the best ice cream you ever tasted". We constantly are winning awards for our old fashioned ice cream served with old fashioned service to match. Offering everything possible with ice cream. From "The Worlds Smallest Cone" to Frappes, Malts and Sundaes to the gigantic "Arctic Circle Sundae" with 20 scoops of ice cream If you have never had one of our "straight from the iron, baked & rolled" waffle cones you have missed out on one of the greatest ice cream experiences. Just ask any one that has!
