We needed an ice cream dessert after a meal down the street. The quality and selection was just excellent.

Ice cream lacks flavor, lacks creaminess, a tad icy. Overall, we were anticipating a good ice cream cone and this was at best only fair.

I thought they had very good cones and flavors. I had the coffee with toffee chips- marvelous! They also did a scoop and a half as their standard once scoop- how cool is that+?!

The ice cream served there was pretty good. They are open late at night, which is a bit of an anomaly for Eastsound. The flavors offered had really creative names. I would go back again for more.

Pretty good ice cream, limited selection (e.g. they had a couple of chocolate blends, but not just plain chocolate. Guy at counter was friendly and did fine. $13 for a single scoop in a waffle cone and a small hit fudge sundae.

The ice cream here was impressive, My husband and I both really enjoyed what we got. And the woman running the place was helpful and friendly, even as we sampled multiple flavors before deciding what we wanted.

Adorable creamery with lots of yummy options for ice cream, hot sandwiches and soups. Local ingredients and great service. Tomato soup was delicious with a grilled cheese panini.

So pleased you enjoyed our offerings. Thanks you! And we've added sodas, floats and pour-overs made with locally made Girl Meets Dirt shrubs. Quince, pear, apple - all made with local fruits. Something very special for your next visit!
