The ice cream here is great. They also make special flavors for the different seasons. They gave us a very generous serving of Indian Pudding as we've never had it or heard about it.

The best ice cream and gelato I've had - frozen nirvana in a homemade waffle cone - with the most charming and friendly staff ever. They'll happily let you sample flavors before choosing - though, honestly, that just makes it harder, since everything is so...More

Very happy with my flavor choice of honey lavender & coconut and my husband with his, peanut butter and salted caramel. The portions were generous and prices average for a gelato place. We went back again during our stay and they had some new options...More

I had received a coupon on my first visit. When I redeemed it(with the owner), he stated he did not have change. He then refused to honor the gift certificate. I go Morton's Moo in Ellsworth for real ice cream without the pretentious attitude.

Visited on the way back from Acadia. Somehow even though it was out of the way the trip was shorter. I don't think I'll ever understand Maine's roads. It was great, Flavors were creative and didn't beat you over the head. Very creamy and not...More

(Closed from December 26 to February 10, 2018) Pugnuts is an artisanal, small batch Ice Cream and Italian Gelato shop. We have indoor and some outdoor seating (come sit on our bench!) We are steps away from Surry's town wharf where there are some granite picnic tables, a large parking lot and a beautiful view. Come try our unique flavors like Oak, Birch Bark, Lavender Honey, Sweet Cream with Rosewater and many others. Or, if you like more traditional flavors, how about Maine wild blueberry, Chocolate, Vanilla, Blueberry Cheesecake, Panna Cotta, Nutella, Butter Pecan, Grapenut, Rum Raisin, and many more- over 24 flavors each day, and they are all made fresh and on premises! If you're visiting someone and want to take a spectacular dessert -how about an Arabesque ice cream roll, or a fancy tufted pillow made of ice cream? We have offerings every day in the case as well as custom orders if you call with 24 hours advance notice. Come and visit Pugnuts in Surry!
