Too bad that the Smuggler has lost their lease! Hopefully they will surface in a new location nearby because we will miss their great homemade ice cream.

The sign along Route 6A in Dennis caught our eye--homemade ice cream. Who could refuse that? On a beautiful sunny day, an inviting temptation that did not disappoint. Noticing the window sign to "Save the Smuggler," we asked what we were saving to be told...More
