We stopped at Pug Nuts on the 4th of July after a long, busy, hot day! The ice cream was outstanding and the service was really quick. The shop was clean and well decorated too.

The best flavors in a dog friendly environment! Our Pugs give the vanilla dog cups with bacon four paws up, and we can only rave about both the ice cream and the gelato. My advice is that you don't miss the lavender honey gelato in...More

The building is throwback to the days of community general stores, except it’s well taken care of and aesthetic. A mix of ancient Maine and modern that inspires tasting and deliciousness. This is TRULY the best ice cream and gelato that I’ve ever had. The...More

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.

(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!
