Really good dairy-free options here — not just your usual lemon sorbet. I had 2 great sorbets during a recent visit — sour cherry, and blueberry basil. Also, I had a vegan peanut-butter chocolate “ice cream” — made with almond milk.

Yummy options for folks who can’t have dairy!

Amazing Ice cream I even let the kids eat it for lunch! Fig ice cream OMG! Highly recommend. We went to both locations on our trip to Bar Harbor. The first was the small one where Obama ate with his family. Then we decided to eat at the other one on our last day as lunch before going home. The Calibut chocolate is to die for my kids were in heaven.

Maine's big on blueberry and I visited 4 ice cream places on Bar Harbor area just to try out blueberry ice creams! Mount Desert is the best of all! You really can't find blueberry ice creams easily outside of Maine area and it's a must try! My kids loved them as well!
