The owner here really cares. They make incredible cones as you order and the ice cream is superb. It is worth the wait during busy months. It is customer oriented and Polar Cave also supports community projects.

Homemade ice cream? a few dollars for huge helpings. Fresh waffle cones made on demand in the waffle iron? add $1.75. The delight you feel entering this whimsical "cave" of Americana? Priceless.

We went twice, during down times and my only complaint was how slow the service was. They were making the waffle cones to order - great idea, but SLOW. Otherwise the ice cream options and portions were great. They have a number of picnic benches...More

Quick stop here for a few scoops of their highly favored ice cream. The flavors we ordered were loaded with added fill, chocolate pieces, etc. This maybe their differentiator.....better than Four Seas, not too far to the east in Craigville? I’m not sure....I like them...More

Come taste "quite possibly the best ice cream you ever tasted". We constantly are winning awards for our old fashioned ice cream served with old fashioned service to match. Offering everything possible with ice cream. From "The Worlds Smallest Cone" to Frappes, Malts and Sundaes to the gigantic "Arctic Circle Sundae" with 20 scoops of ice cream. If you have never had one of our "straight from the iron, baked & rolled" waffle cones you have missed out on one of the greatest ice cream experiences. Just ask any one that has!
