I've come to 4 seas ice cream at least once since I was little, it is very good! I just wish they wouldn't use the same machine to make all of the ice creams, because they have peanuts on it!

Yes! First of all, all ice cream is made in the same machine! We will get an unused scoop or put a scoop through the dishwasher and will scoop from out back where the cans have not been scooped from yet. Please call with any... More

Since 1934, Four Seas has provided Cape Cod with the finest ice cream and customer service. An old blacksmith shop turned ice cream parlor is where, you can sit on stools at the counter or at a dining room table. Old-fashioned ice cream sodas, frappes, and ice cream flavors like ginger, penuche pecan, cookie do, fresh peach, and black raspberry. Four Seas has been winning national and local competitions for decades, and has been named in the top ten ice creams in the country by several publications. We are committed to working with customers’ needs, from delivery options to unique flavors created especially for a specific company. Many local restaurants, ice cream stores, beach clubs, caterers, golf clubs, and local markets purchase wholesale 3 gallon tubs, toppings, cones, and/or quarts. Off-Season hours 11-5 Wednesday thru Sundays for quarts, toppings, and ice cream cakes.
