Four Seas Ice Cream

Four Seas is at the top of our list for a reason and many who live and visit Cape Cod visit Four Seas annually. This is definitely a must visit for ice cream lovers! Four Seas has been serving Ice Cream and Cape Codders since 1934. They’ve been winning national and local competitions for a decade and has been named in top ten ice creams by national publications. We’ve noticed that it’s also available in various locations on Cape Cod, including Whole Foods and certain package stores that have an adult version.

The Ice Cream Smuggler

After a day at Mayflower or Chapin Beach in Dennis, there is nothing better than having an ice cream from the Ice Cream Smuggler. They offer a variety of flavors that range from vanilla to pistachio and beyond. The Ice Cream Smuggler is cash only, so make sure you have some and not a card!

Lewis Brothers – Provincetown

It’s worth the drive to Provincetown. But really, do we have to twist your arm for ice cream? Especially the rich, gelato-like kind, with flavors like grape nut, green tea and pumpkin spice? No, we don’t. Lewis Brothers, along Commercial Street, creates new flavors daily and also has a small food truck which makes stops in other Cape towns.

Somerset Creamery – Cataumet

Another gem of the Upper Cape: Somerset Creamery, 1268 Route 28A, Cataumet. Located in a sleepy village in Bourne, this standout creamery has long lines stretching into the parking lot for most of the season – even on weekdays. Inside, the air is thick with the aroma of freshly-made waffle cones and various frozen custards to stuff into them. Favorite flavors are supercharged with fresh ingredients and complimented with more original fare, like “cranberry bog,” ginger and the end-of-summer favorite: Indian Pudding. Don’t forget to try a Black Cow!

Twin Acres – Sandwich

What’s in a name? You’re liable to find this Sandwich shop’s Cape Cod style structure and title to be rich with old country charm, but the real treat awaits you in the deep freeze. Bourbon Caramel Pistachio Brittle, Frozen Pudding, and the famed White Thunder (featuring white chocolate chips and black raspberry) are all mouthwatering flavors which speak for themselves.
