We loved visiting different ice cream shops all throughout our week in Maine, but I think this was our least favorite of the 5 or so we visited. The ice cream wasn't nearly as unique as other places. It was perfectly fine, but definitely not somewhere I'd take a friend in Portland who wanted great ice cream.

Cash only! Homemade flavors change daily. Even sugar free options are equally tasty! Ice cream is rich and creamy!

I've tried this place twice and have found it wanting. The flavors are just too bland. Four $4 a cone I want really good product. Go down the street to Gelato Fiasco (wich I had know about that first) instead.

We like to order frozen yogurt and they had what we needed, triple chocolate! Could use more seating though.

We loved it! The chocolate doughboy was really good! We'd like to go back to try more flavors. It was our first vacation day and a great start.
