2004 Best Ice Cream, Cape Cod

Sundae School

Cape Cod sometimes feels as though it’s sinking under the weight of its many ice cream shops, but Sundae School rises above with handmade, creamy flavors in such addictive permutations as espresso crunch, Kahlúa chip, and Bass River mud (coffee ice cream with fudge, almonds, and chocolate chunks). Add such toppings as fresh, plump blueberries, bananas, buttery hot fudge, homemade cream, and a fresh Bing cherry, and you’ve got more than just an ice cream treat. You’ve got a religious experience.
