If you have considered stopping at Buffy's - Don't. Seriously skip it. It is not even as good as Friendly's and it is a rip off. Just down the road a one minute walk away (just behind the Chatham Squire and next to the Chatham...More

At 6.50 for a single cone, which I’ve never paid before, I expect a superior product filled with increadible products. Three cones of different flavors. Three strikes. 2 cherry pieces and one small choc piece in black cherry chunk vanilla. Sad. Salted caramel. Boring. Red...More

Buffy’s has lovely ice cream from what I tasted. Customer service was the biggest issue presuming the establishment only had one person serving and assisting people on the cashier. Line was enourmous around 3:00pm on a Thursday. Still amazing ice cream! And the location was...More

Since you walk in the smell will warm you. Perfect for a sunny or rainy day.... the kids that work there are super friendly! A 100% recommended, a bit pricey but really good.

Buffy's is a picturesque ice cream shop in the middle of Chatham's Main Street. Although pricey (see my picture for pricing- $6.50 for large single scoop), it's worth a visit. They sell cute shirts and sweatshirts. The people who work there are personable and attentive....More

So you’re on vacation, the ice cream here is pretty good and yes it’s not cheap. But honestly I was happy with the pastries. Both brownie and cookie were soft, chewy and tasty.
