Taste Your Way Through Cape Cod: Eleven Awesome Ice Cream Shops
How to spend vacations in Cape Cod
The ice cream shops that have been closed all winter are now open to serve up one of the best treats the Cape has to offer. While off Cape the options for ice cream consist of chains such as Dairy Queen or Friendlys, on Cape Cod, there is an abundance of shops that make their own ice cream (or sell ice cream that has been made in New England).
Sundae School, which has locations in Orleans (210 Main Street, East Orleans, phone 508-255-5473), Harwich (606 Route 28, Harwichport, phone 508-430-2444), and Dennis (381 Lower County Road, Dennisport, phone 508-394-9122), makes their own delicious ice cream from the finest ingredients. They are a cash only operation, so keep that in mind and keep cash on hand.
The Ice Cream Smuggler at 716 Route 6A in Dennis (phone 508-385-5307) has great ice cream, as well as amazing ice cream cakes that are perfect for family get togethers or celebrations. They are also cash only.

Lewis Brothers of 310 Commercial Street in Provincetown (508-487-0977) makes their own fantastic ice cream, and they also have a solar ice cream truck which visits the Truro Farmers Market and the beaches in Truro.
