Schoolhouse Ice Cream in Harwich is a good place to grab dessert after dinner, a long day out exploring Cape Cod on the boat, or relaxing at the beach. They have a great selection of homemade ice cream and will definitely not disappoint.

This is a nice little ice cream place that has lots of interesting flavors to choose from. It has indoor and outdoor seating (on the patio or porch), so you can enjoy your treat outdoors, but in the shade.

Stopped at the Schoolhouse Ice Cream yesterday for an afternoon treat and was glad I did. I had a small peppermint ice cream cone which was very generous. The ice cream was fresh and creamy. Super place for a treat.

Luckily, we were told about SchoolHouse on the first day of our vacation by the mother of the woman who we rented our cottage from in Chatham. She said, "Don't go anywhere else. They have the best ice cream." Usually I take this type of comment with a grain of salt. Not in this instance. If anything, she may have... More

Delicious variety of flavors. The rental agent for our vacation house recommended it as the best homemade ice cream in the area. She was right! LARGE scoops. Very friendly staff. I suggest you order the next size up. Only 50 cents more and one more huge scoop. We always order it in a cup with the cone on top. Seems... More

stopped here after dinner on a recent trip, wanting something slightly sweet and refreshing, and the blackberry sorbet was just the thing - delicious!

After eating some really poor ice cream on the Cape this summer, I was SO happy to have found this place. I ordered the frozen pudding and my husband ordered triple chocolate. Both were exquisitely delicious. Better than any supermarket ice cream. Definitely tasted homemade. Yummo! We will definitely go back. Be forewarned though: it is pricey at $4.50 for... More

Really nice place and great ice cream. Thought it would be a little better for the cost. Seems to be a very popular place and it is on the Cape so prices may be worth it. Definitely good food and service.

Cute little place with great ice cream! I liked the maraschino cherry/chocolate flavor. Not sure if this is better than Sundae School...I would have to do a side by side comparison! I do think the portions are a bit bigger. Friendly service and lots of different flavors to choose from.
