“Good Ice Cream, No indoor seating”

Gifford's Famous Ice Cream
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Farmington
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 7, 2019

We've been going here a few times per summer for many years. The ice cream is good, with soft and hard serve options now, but a bit pricey. Located walking distance of the UMF campus, It is quite popular with the high school and college crowd, as well as families with children. Very small kids get a free baby cone. It's also nice that they will make a sundae for your dog. The only reason I give fewer stars is the location. This is between two very busy roads with lots of the traffic Farmington is known for. There are a couple of picnic tables, against the side of the building, but there is nowhere else except inside your car to eat. (No bathroom, etc) It's a nice treat for a snack, and some people do take their ice cream across the street to eat in the park on nice days. Just be very careful crossing!

Giffords makes the best ice cream and has the most fantastic variety of flavors! And it is really local-made in our neighboring town of Skowhegan, and all family run.

Farmington has always been an ice cream town The Magno family made home made ice cream for years at this location. Just down the hill from the college and across the street for Hippach Field. Soany flavors to choose from Moose tracks and Black Bear are great choices. Cones or cups Tis is a Maine Chain. Just open during the warm months. Just outdoor seating . Nice staff

You cannot travel to Maine without a stop at Gifford's. Offering a multitude of locally inspired flavors, my personal favorites are Moose Tracks and Peanut Butter Pie! Gifford's of Maine is a must stop!

The best ice cream I have ever had. It doesn’t matter what you get, it’s good. So many flavors to choose from, along with sundaes, frappes, and weekly specials like strawberry shortcake.
