The ice cream is creamy and delicious, however the service and prices leave a lot to be desired. I was also surprised there weren't more flavor choices, but it is a small shop. We took ours outside since when there are others in line the...More

We appreciate your visiting our shop, and we're so glad you liked our ice cream! We offer more than 30 flavors but cannot present them all every day because, as you noticed, space is limited and we are a small operation. Thanks again for stopping...More

The best home made ice cream! Fresh and delicious! I would highly recommend! Try the vanilla and the strawberry!

Vanilla is a BIG favorite, and strawberry, and the always scrumptious dark chocolate! Thanks so much for your review and coming by out little shop on Orcas.

The homemade ice cream is rich and fabulous. The small shop has some inside seating. We particularly enjoyed talking with the owner. She was very nice.

Thank you for stopping by our little shop in Eastsound! We're so glad you enjoyed our small-batch, locally made ice cream, and hope you'll have the opportunity to visit us often.

The appeal is their various flavors. I mixed London fog with mint but honestly didn't finish my cone. It wasn't overly flavorful. Definitely isn't bad, but I probably won't be back because it's very expensive for what you get. The service was nice and friendly.

Delicious ice-cream with a good variety of cone types. When I was there, not a lot of flavor choices but it was almost closing time and I had no problem finding a flavor I enjoyed.

So glad you stopped by our Creamery and found a flavor you liked! We rotate our flavors almost every day, so you should find some new ones the next time you stop by.

Our first impression was that it was clean and very organized. The team members were very kind and energetic. Ice cream flavors were from locally sourced fruits and different and delicious. The only reason I give this a 3 stars is that our second day...More

The ice cream is nothing special and cannot be distinguished from what you get at the grocery story. The service is self-absorbed and slow. When we arrived wanting a sundae we were informed that all of the fudge and all of the caramel sauce had...More

The ice cream is very good, but the person who waited on us did not seem to be enjoying her situation. She was a bit curt and complained that scooping the ice cream caused wrist pain for her. She seemed a bit impatient, although we...More

Situated in "downtown Eastsound," this little family-run novelty ice cream shop looks unassuming when you are passing by, that is, until you see the kids and adults licking away at their deliciously large melting ice cream cones and you start drooling as well. Our group...More
