This was in walking distance to our motel and the ice was amazing as well as the service. Our 2 year old had a blast playing on the wooden train

The ice cream is stale and old. Must have been sitting around for over a year. NO flavor. NONE. It is the worst ice cream I've had on the Cape. I used to frequent this place 15-20 years ago and it was very good back then. My husband and I stopped for nostalgia and both ordered a cone. We were... More

Our ice cream is not over a year old. We are not open year round, plus we just had the busiest season we have ever had, therefore the ice cream was not sitting around long enough to get stale. If you did not enjoy the flavor you chose, my staff would have kindly gotten you another flavor. You could have... More

This is our favorite ice cream spot on the cape. 100% worth the wait if there is a line out front. Very friendly staff. Cash only but they do have an ATM there.

Ice cream was excellent! Large variety. Sample first. Blueberry and frozen pudding were unreal and delicious. Met some local owners there who were very friendly. Will be back.

We have come to really love Lil' Caboose Ice Cream. Located centrally on Rte 28, and much better than the New England Creamery right down the street, it is our go to ice cream place on the Cape. Lots of flavors to choose from - hard and soft serve ice cream available. They are always trying out new flavors, but... More

One of my family favorite things to do while on the cape is enjoy the wonderful array of ice cream. Some of the best I've had any where. Of all these great places lil caboose wins our number one spot. The ice cream is the best. We also love Sunday school, cape cod creamery and as of this year the... More
