Nice place for ice cream and many flavors to choose from. Line can get long but moves quick. They had some gluten free options for my wife and she got the chocolate moose tracks and liked it a lot.

We stopped in for ice cream, and were pleasantly surprised at the number of wonderful homemade flavors available. They even had Maine Blueberry Gelato....amazing!

If you like cookie-dough ice cream, you HAVE to try CJ's version. It has huge hunks of dough in it. The classic must-do ice cream stop in Bar Harbor!

My son (4.5 years) had his first soft serve here! They had almond milk soft-serve and he loved every bite. The little place was crowded but it moved quickly. They have loads of flavors but we especially appreciated the non-dairy options. Keep it up!

Stopped here after dinner and we were so glad we did! I tried the traditional wild blueberry ice cream and my husband had chocolate. Our friends had a vanilla milkshake and mint chip ice cream. We all raved about how great each of ours was....More
