Summer on Cape Cod is hot. These are the best places to grab a cool cone.
An essential part of being on the Cape? The ice cream. Is any summer really complete without a walk on the beach during the sunset and eating your favorite Cape Cod inspired ice cream cone? The options for amazing ice cream seem endless, especially on the Cape.
Here are five of our favorites.
Four Seas | 360 South Main St., Centerville
Fun flavors abound at Four Seas Ice Cream. In business since 1934, this old blacksmith-shop-turned-ice cream-shop is the go-to for generations of Cape Cod visitors. Build your summer memories over favorite flavors like peach, back raspberry, and cantaloupe? Yes, cantaloupe. Try it!
Hallett’s Ice Cream Shop | 139 Route 6A, Yarmouth Port
Located just across the street from The Inn at Yarmouth Port, Hallet’s has been carefully concocting the tastiest flavors for 130 years! Discerning frozen fix devotees swear by Hallet’s for a fun place to visit for homemade ice cream, sandwiches, and old-fashioned sodas. It’s like stepping back in time. Hallett’s hasn’t changed since 1889!
Katie’s Homemade Ice Cream | 560 Main Street, Hyannis
It’s all about the love at Katie’s. Small batch ice cream. Handmade baked goods. A welcoming place to gather. A mission to make people happy. You’ll find adventurous flavors like ‘Cape Cod Sand’ and ‘Lavender Honeycomb’ (inspired by Cape Cod Lavender Farm), and scores of other flavors and treats at this little shop in the heart of Hyannis. Yum!
Schoolhouse Ice Cream | 749 Route 28, Harwich Port
If you’re into plentiful portions and unique flavors, Schoolhouse Ice Cream is your spot. A fun place, outdoor seating, and excellent homemade ice cream in 55 flavors. Looking for a local favorite? Go with the Harwich Mudpie!
Sundae School | 606 Main St., Route 28, Harwich Port or 381 Lower County Rd, Dennisport
What’s not to love about this family-owned favorite? An old-fashioned ice cream parlor, complete with a 100-year-old marble soda fountain. A fun collection of ice cream memorabilia. And the most amazing ice cream – made in small batches on premises using only the freshest, finest ingredients. Make ours a double scoop!
