Can't understand the hype of this place. One scoop is the size for a kiddie cup. Outrageously price for over $4.00. The icecream is tasty and several to choose from but for the price I would expect more. Try the sweet cream and peanut butter.

Of all the ice cream spots in Bar Harbor (and there are many), I navigated here based on all the reviews I had read. OMG were they right!! The ice cream is just so creamy and delicious, with the perfect texture and unique and delicious flavors. This quickly became our nightly treat and didn't have the same flavor twice!

Creamy and unique taste. Always good to try the local fare while traveling. Worth a trip to give it a shot.

Who doesn't love ice cream? Our dog even enjoyed a bowl while we were taking a break from sightseeing and shopping.

We really loved this spot. We were walking around and stumbled across it. The flavors were good and the couple inside were really great.
