We just happened to drive by this place and said, oh, let's get an ice cream. I had a salted caramel with little chocolate bits in it (I can't remember the name, but it's their best-seller). It was one of the best ice creams I've ever had in my LIFE. People of Bath, you are lucky indeed.

The only ice cream place in downtown bath. Small with some seating. Not homemade ice cream like you can find in other places around Maine.

We went to this ice cream place two nights in a row. The first time the line was out the door but the wait was reasonable. There was 8 in our group.

We had ice cream both nights, though I see the do sandwiches and other things too. The portions are great, the service is fast and friendly, and the prices are... More

Cute shop in Bath. The whoopie pie, dino crunch and cotton candy were all great choices. The small is 2 scoops and a good price. For those looking for a smaller portion, the kiddie cone is a perfect size at one scoop. They also have shaved ice and frozen yogurt.

Lots of flavors to decide from. Service was fast. Price was fair. A small is two large scoops. Would recommend the whoppie pie ice cream flavor.

Very unique and very good and was in a nice part of town and I was surprised it was open late on a Sunday night. I will likely go back again
