This place is fantastic. Fresh pies, cookies and brownies. Dozens of flavors of ice cream. Cute outdoor eating area along the main strip. The place was packed but the line moved fast. Would be 5 stars if they took credit cards.

We wanted a little ice cream on our last night in Bar Harbor as we were wandering downtown and came across this place - it was pretty crowded, which we took as a good sign. I had the blueberry soft serve, which was excellent.

We tried two or three ice cream shops. This is the best! The blueberry soft serve is incredible! We have been back twice!

Both my husband and I decided to have a small dish of ice cream after our dinner. We wish we would have shared because their small was still quite large. My husband had their butter brickle and I can't remember what I had. They were...More
