Thank you for the great review. We serve the highest quality and highest butterfat content. The reason they call it soft serve is because if it's less then 10 percent butterfat. Legally it's not ice cream but ours is 10 percent and it's legally ice...More

Very friendly, good service and good hard and soft serve ice cream. Plenty of flavors and topping to choose. Hope the new owners do well.

Thank you very much! The new owner didn't buy our business he is putting his own business in there. We hope to find a new location .

We have enjoyed Ice Cream Sandwich for decades, until recently. The new owners have stopped using hand whipped cream and have substituted aerated cream. This change makes it just another ice cream shop. PityMore

My favorite stop when going off Cape. I live on the Lower Cape and don't go to Sandwich that often. I order Cranberry Bog every time. It's so flavorfull. They promise me they won't stop making this flavor. Taste for yourself. They do offer tastings!
