Some treats are so fabulous that price no longer matters. Such is the case with the ice cream from Emack and Bolio's. It is THE creamiest, richest, and smoothest variety I've ever tasted. They're very smart to offer just a few "perfect" selections rather than a sea of 'mediocre' ones; that is, after all, the entire idea behind a "specialty"... More

First off, this ice cream, by far, was the most delicious I've eaten down on the Cape (and I've eaten A LOT of ice cream down there!) Homemade and with flavors you don't normally see, the ice cream was creamy and delicious. I would've given it 5 stars, but the cost was prohibitive to that rating, and there also was... More

The service was very good. The staff was pleasant and helpful. This is perhaps the best ice cream I have had in Orleans so far. The ice cream was tasty and very creamy.

We're from Boston and love Emack's there too. But this location has the best selection of flavors, generous portions and fast service!

Rude staff, and we paid $18.00 for two waffle cones.... Unless I'm pooping out gold or silver later, that seemed a bit ridiculous. And the ice cream was freezer burned. This place used to be our favorite, but not anymore.

The chocolate ice cream was amazing. The rest of my family were also happy with their fares. Good location too.

We stopped here on a hot day and got a couple of smoothies. Very good combinations of fruits, juices and yogurt. Great way to cool off and relax after a long day.

I thought the ice cream was very tasty! My husband also enjoyed his mocha since he was in the mood for coffee. Nice atmosphere and cute store!
