This place definitely has the downtown Bellingham vibe going for it, and is a fun place to stop in with the family for an ice cream. I wouldn’t say it is the best ice cream in town, though, but they do have bunches of flavors...More

I’m an addict for Mallards ice cream. They make the best Coconut Almond Chocolate Chunk. Every bite is perfect. Fun to eat in or bring some home.

Many locals love this spot, four of us went for ice cream and we all got something different. Not my thing. I do appreciate their quality product, but their flavors - meh

Bustling, even on not so hot days. Folks line up for uncommon flavors such as basil, rose, avocado. To be sure, they serve up the best in conventional flavors as well.

Long line for the fun and varied flavors, but it moved quickly. Excellent counter staff: patient and friendly. Funky vibe and open roll up storefront. Aggressive panhandling on this block detracts from the experience

Locally made, fresh and delicious with all natural ingredients. Unusual and fun flavor combos. A favorite among locals. Brought my niece in from the east coast, who weighs about 90 lbs, and she ate a whole pint of strawberry in one sitting, and said it...More

If there's a line, people are socializing or reading the flyers. It's worth the wait! Best ice cream around.
