I allow myself one "real" ice cream cone per year: always pistachio, and always at the Sundae School.

Temps in the 80s and humid this afternoon so stopped off for something to hold us over until dinner. Two cones did the trick. I had the Oreo crunch (or something like that) and my wife had mocha chip. Couldn't have been better. Only problem now is that our house is much too close and we'll be tempted almost daily... More

Delicious. Visited with 2 small children. Went for a sundae; was so tasty - could have shared one between two and felt a bit guilty. Was very good. But of a queue, but worth wait. Arrived around 8 and waited for 20 mins. Parking onsite and got a spot straight away. There is a little garden to sit in, could... More

Be prepared to wait in line for Sundae School ice cream, but it's worth it. They have all the standard favorites and some interesting unique ones as well.

Sundae School offers a couple of dozen flavors of ice cream in a small space with outside seating. It is authentically old fashioned. The servers are local teens and they are efficient and helpful and very polite. The ice cream was super creamy and included a huge selection of flavors. It was a great way to end another lovely day... More

The location is the best is it on the way home from Nauset Beach, so it almost demands that you stop there. We got a cone and a banana split sundae. Really fresh and super delicious. Now a mandatory stop for us in town.

We stopped by here yesterday with our kids. My son loved the ginger ice cream, and I agreed it was very tasty. I had to try their hot fudge as I had read it was homemade. Such a good decision, as it was delicious, and a perfect match for the coconut ice cream! Very friendly service, too.

We have been going to the Sundae School for over 30 years when vacationing annually in Orleans, MA. It continues to be the best! Favorites choices are Nauset Mud, Coffee Oreo, Grasshopper and Peach to name just a few. After a Cape Cod League baseball game, it is a tradition to stop at the Sundae School for a favorite ice...
