“Worth the lines”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have lived here for a couple years but only recently found myself in 4C's, the famous ice cream parlor. An old building filled with memories and photos of all who have worked there, and the best ice cream around. Try the Lemon Crisp, plain vanilla (awesome), or a frappe of any flavor. They also have sandwiches if you are headed to the beach and want to take one along. Lines can be very long, but it is worth the wait for sure.

“The best”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Delicious ice cream served by local high school and college students. Best for a summer evening out with the kids.
You might have to wait , but worth it.

“Real home made ice cream”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

A tradition on Cape Cod. Chocolate is excellent.
Service is fun. Be prepared to bring cash and wait on
line. But you will meet nice people.
