I thought the ice cream was just OK. The flavors seemed muted and didn't seem to pop. Willard Scoops struck me as average compared to other home made ice cream places in the area, although the cost was above average.

Last year we discovered Willard Scoops while vacationing in Portland. Hoping it was not just the novelty that we enjoyed, we visited again. Twice! Just plain delicious. Great consistency and flavor. We also directed many, many other guests from Inn by the Sea to Willard's....More

Fabulous home made ice cream, creamy, creative flavors all made in small batches. I highly recommend the salted caramel flavor. She also makes ginger ice cream. Her flavors are brilliant, delicious. There might be a waiting line, but certainly worth the wait!

Tucked away on a small square is a wonderful local ice cream shop. Great mix of flavors and the homemade hot fudge is worth a try!

All their ice cream is extremely tasty and fresh - cannot go wrong with any flavor... Undecided, ask for a taste of any flavor!

Well I guess its alright the "a" was left out.... I like Willard Scoops. The staff are young and friendly and the ice-cream flavors are interesting. I had a dish of salt caramel chip, and blueberry (the former was a little too salt for me)...More
