“Shhhhh, don't give away this secret gem!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I have been going to Sundae School for almost 30 years. The ice cream is fresh made, they offer a wide array of flavors, some of which are created with local themes in mind. EG: Bass River Mud. They whip up their own fresh whipping cream and the hot fudge is full of goooey goodness. This location is in an old barn and decorated with lots of old fashioned ice cream parlor antiques including a player piano. College students are employed during the summer to service you and the banners of the schools they attend are hung in the rafters. The owner must quiz the servers because they can remember the order of an entire family without writing anything down. Lines form early and often for the outside take out windows and they even have to hire people to direct traffic in the parking lot so be careful pulling in. It is certainly a Cape Cod gem. So visit but don't tell anybody else about our little secret!

“Best Ice Cream on the Cape”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

My uncle had a cottage within walking distance of the Sundae School. Never made a trip down there without getting an ice cream from there. Been going there since I can remember.....30 years or so. Waaay before the huge throngs of people discovered the place. Still doesn't keep me away. Worth waiting in line for, but not cheap. But, what is down the Cape? Go there and eat ice cream.

“Awesome ice cream”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

This place is wonderful!! Their ice cream may be the best on Cape. Lots of choices and very popular so plan to wait at peak times but it is well worth the wait!! Can't wait to go back.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

There's a reason why this place needs a police detail to direct traffic on the street.

“Best Sundaes!!!”
Reviewed 19 January 2012


When I was a kid I enjoyed Maple Walnut sundaes at a dairy farm near my aunt's house. These are as good or better. The finest ingredients..fresh whipped cream and even a Bing cherry on top! Don't miss it! I go to the Dennisport location but any Sundae school will make you happy!
