Have a look at their ducks in the "freezer" case, what a hoot or rather a quack. It pays to follow their flavors online. My daughter keeps tabs on Blueberry, an all-time favorite! Get it quick, it goes fast. "Dine" inside, outside or take it to go. We buy it by the pint and that's never enough for my family.... More

Mallards homemade unique ice cream is a great place to visit both for the experience and the ice cream. It has simple (actually plain) decour but that adds to the ambience. They have multiple flavors most of which you've never heard of and other staples that you recognize my name. The choice of flavors vary week to week with some... More

Mallards is one of those places you just need to visit because everyone from Bellingham will ask you if you've eaten there. It's always crowded, but that's expected. Fairly good ice cream quality, nothing to write home about.

Mallards was conveniently located in town. The meters are free after 5. It was clean and roomy, but besides chocolate there were no flavors that would be interested in trying.

Walking around downtown and wandered in, everyone should wander in, yum. Only problem is getting the staff's attention... they chat in the back.

They have great flavors of ice cream to close from. Flavors change by season. It's a great place to get a nice treat and hang out with friends or family. Staff is friendly and the ice cream is great. Only downside is that they don't take debit/credit.

This is a awesome place to take family, my grandchild loves it when we take him to mallards, he enjoys looking at the huge collection of rubber ducks they have and of course the ice cream. He gets strawberry every time . But all the ice cream is fantastic. You will not find the unique flavors they make anywhere else.... More

We've been coming here about once a month for what must be ten years, now. A true original, this ice cream shoppe features home-made flavors that range from the classic (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry) to the exotic (rose, coriander, White Russian). They have non-dairy sorbet options, make sundaes and banana splits, and even have the "Indecision Scoop", which allows you to... More

An eclectic mix of flavors, some stay on the board all (most) of the time and others are available here and now and maybe never again. They offer free samples to taste the flavors - maple bourbon, ghost pepper lemonade, cinnamon, lavender... But, they only take cash so hit the ATM before going. They have on inside the store and...
