What is not to like about ice cream. Nice staff- just need more flavors! Cute shop also with fun items to bring home for gifts!

We came over to Peaks Island for the afternoon, rented a golf cart to drive around the island. Before getting back on the ferry we stopped for some ice cream. The Wild Blueberry was very good. Worth stopping in for.

Icecream is good- Giffords of Maine- but it's very expensive. The merchandise they have is crappy Made in China gifts and also are very expensive. There's always a line out the door, honestly I'd prefer going to the grocery store down the street and getting a icecream pop for half the price and half the wait

Amazing ice cream... Being from Brooklyn and living down the block from the famous Old Fellows Ice Cream parlor, we can confidently say that this ice cream was comparable if not better than Brooklyn! We tried the Wild Maine blueberry and Raspberry Rocky bear... Mmmmm delicious! Portions are large and price is not hiked even though tourists routinely flock here.... More

Definitely some of the best ice cream I've ever had. Would recommend the wild Maine blueberry flavor. We almost went back for seconds during our brief two hour trip to the island.

We came over to Peaks on the ferry to kill a morning. We had been on a tour of the White mountains and as a mixed party of 6 I wasn't sure that his may be a bit boring. It wasn't, it was the highlight of our trip. We hired bikes and cycled easily around the whole island, I defy... More
