Just up the street from where we stayed, Kellerhaus is a cute store with friendly staff and yummy ice cream. The waffle cones and bowls are fresh and delicious and their sundae topping make it better. The young woman who greeted us at the door asked if this was our first time then proceeded to tell us what they offered.... More

My husband and I were visiting family in NH, and they took us to visit the ice cream sundae buffet at Kellerhaus. Ice cream is something special in NH, and the in-house made variety is very popular. Even when spring has not yet arrived, if the ice cream is for sale, there will be people there to enjoy it! We... More

Went there with my wife, daughter and granddaughter. They have quite a varied menu, you can get ice cream alone in cups or cones, various sizes,... More

We decided to stop by the Kellerhaus yesterday, on one of the first nice days of the year. I'm really glad we did! They have so many beautiful items for sale, including a lot of local made NH products. The ladies working on the candy bar were so knowledgeable about their products, and happy to discuss them with us. We... More

I will confess to some sadness at the closing of Franken Sundae but when I discovered Kellerhaus was still in business I brought my son on over to it. Choose your scoops (up to 10?!) and then dress it out with the toppings of your choice. But don't forget that their marshmallow and butterscotch are amazing. And the whipped cream... More

I stopped in to find out about the ice cream sundae buffet advertised. It was interesting. Only the hot sauces were covered and this was early in the AM, all the cold toppings were exposed. Not many people buying ice cream before noon. Then the silly thing to me, was that they closed at 6:00. Right when most people would... More
