Really nice place and great ice cream. Thought it would be a little better for the cost. Seems to be a very popular place and it is on the Cape so prices may be worth it. Definitely good food and service.

Cute little place with great ice cream! I liked the maraschino cherry/chocolate flavor. Not sure if this is better than Sundae School...I would have to do a side by side comparison! I do think the portions are a bit bigger. Friendly service and lots of different flavors to choose from.

I always love going to Sundae School but Schoolhouse is simply a better deal all the way around. You get bigger servings and they have a good selection of flavors for about the same price as SS. Try the Irish Whiskey Coffee!

Ice cream is my favorite food so when I say Schoolhouse is the best place to get it, I know from whence I speak. The shop itself is charming with gorgeous plantings and clever birdhouses. Sit on the porch, in the garden, or inside. Besides the wonderful flavor of this homemade ice cream, the size of the cones will bring... More

Best place on the Cape that I have found so far. HUGE servings so much so that I had to change my order from a regular to a small. Ice cream is delicious and light. Waffles cones was crisp and tasty as well. I went to Katies and the Polar Igloo and this place wins hands down.....Make the trip !!

Lots of choices (ice cream and yogurt) and long lines that move fairly fast. They do not take credit or debit! Public bathroom, picnic tables and almost enough parking. Do not confuse with Old Schoolhouse ice cream shop or Sundae School (both good, but not the same)

Prefer this business to the other ice cream chain with a location downtown in Harwcih Port. Schoolhouse is worth the 5 minute drive north of downtown.Very nice layout with plenty of parking and outdoor seating on benches and at picnic tables.

We went there twice - both times outstanding. Great flavor selection and on our second visit we tried the "Super Bowl Sundae". The Super Bowl was insanely good and made perfectly with great suggestions from Tommi and Cici who were great servers. It may not be as famous as other Ice Cream Shops on the Cape, but Definitely worth the... More

We always make few stops here while on the Cape. So many delicious flavors, and always incredibly friendly staff. Only order the large if you're starving. Even the small is a huge serving! They do only take cash, just and FYI.

Ice cream made right there on site. Great selection of flavored. Extremely generous portions. Even the "kiddy" size is a lot of ice cream. Always friendly, young people serving large servings of great tasting ice cream.
