Late-May visit, we were only customers, so we enjoyed our ice cream and froz yogurt while visiting with John behind the counter. Tucked away behind other shops and restaurants, we hunted this spot down from locals' recommendations. Good flavor offerings, although just a little pricey.

I spent many evenings of my childhood at the Emack's in Springfield, NJ. It was nice to see this one in Cape Cod. Although it wasn't as nice as the E&B I remember, the flavors are interesting and the service was good. Not a complaint...More

"Cake" cone was stale; ice-cream doesn't hold a candle to JP Licks. Hot fudge disappointing -- more like syrup than like fudge.
