The Vanilla Bean Creamery is a no frills, no fuss kind of place. The homemade ice cream is the best around, we have not had a bad flavor yet. It is definitely worth the money and the u-turn to get there.

Excellent ice cream - so many great flavors to choose from. We had the coconut chip, but I was sorely tempted by many other options. "Nantucket" was a pistachio and cranberry flavor - wow. A wonderful stop for ice cream lovers.

We had seafood at a nearby restaurant and drove by the Creamery. You have to love it that the sign said "Homemade ice cream ready by 5PM." Great flavors and small tables offer outside seating
