I was visiting with one of my girl friends, and this place had gelato. It tasted good, but it would be my 2nd choice.

The Ice Cream Palace is the 'go to' spot for ice cream on Block Island. While the lines can get long it moves fast and is worth the wait. They go beyond the usual - try the Carmel Chocolate Pretzel (the name says it all)...More
