Just great ice cream. Made with all natural ingredients. Coffee ice cream is the very best. Only in Maine.

Wonderful ice cream stand! The ice cream is fabulous, servings are generous, and the staff are very pleasant. I often take my grandchildren and one of their friends. We have many photos of happy kids eating Gifford's ice cream.

Stopped by chance on my way to NH. Nice location, same great selection as other Giffords. Bathrooms are nice as is the picnic table area. There isn't any mini golf but there is a small house for the children to play in.

A trip to Maine is not complete without a trip to a Gifford's Ice Cream stop and the one on Minot Avenue is super convenient. Fresh, homemade and a huge variety to chose from. I got a chuckle reading the names "Lobster Tracks", "Muddy Boots"...More

Numerous flavors of great ice cream. Try the Maine wild blueberry. This is not a fast food place which is good. But if there is a line be prepared to wait.
