When I come up to Kennebunkport - Cape Porpoise - there are a number of places to go that are as essential as the beach and the little shops around Dock Square.
The Cape Porpoise Creamery is everything I remember as a kid growing up with the Mom and Pop Ice Cream shops (yes this is a Mom, Pop, Daughter, and Sister operation).
The ice cream they serve is all a product of Maine - and the hospitality is pure down-east. After the beach, after dinner ... heck between happy hour and dinner; there is no bad time to treat yourself. Flavors akimbo - but I'm pretty conservative. Love the hot fudge sundays - and the simplicity of three scoops of Mint Chocolate Chip in a dish.
Trust me on this one. there is no down side to making this stop while up in Maine.
The place is dog friendly by the way.
