Reasons to be Cheerful - Homemade Ice Cream ICE CREAM & FROZEN YOGURT

As West Concord's Dessert Cafe, we have several options to satisfy any sweet craving from your morning latte to after-dinner ice cream and cookies. All of our ice cream is made by hand, on-site, and in small batches. New flavors are made every day alongside the 28 usuals. That means that if you don't see your favorite one day, it may be here the next! And when it is up, be sure to grab it in one of our hand-packed quarts or pints to take it home and save for later. Every flavor is also available in soft serve and we have tons of toppings to give you every reason to be cheerful! Getting started in the morning is rough, which is why we brew fresh, locally roasted Karma Coffee every day and offer it in lattes, mochas, affogatos (that's coffee with ice cream!). We can even pour some into a frappe for a frappuccino! Not a coffee person? No problem. We also have several varieties of tea and other hot and cold drinks. There are cookies in the shop once again! That's right, cookies. You can take a few or get them made into a cookie ice cream sandwich. With five kinds baked daily, what's not to love!

Great service!

I really liked that there was the "doggie" sized ice cream option. I have two kids, aged 4- and 2-years old. It's nice to be able to go to an ice cream shop and get a size that is actually appropriate for tiny kids. Also, the ice cream tastes delicious!

The strawberry ice cream was fabulous. Thanks Nift for the suggestion

You can either order ice cream through the front windows or inside. Small seating area downstairs. Not sure what is upstairs. Good selection of ice cream flavors and toppings. Also serve frappes.

Love the seasonal flavors

Liz, October 5, 2019

The 'Special' flavors were intriguing and quite tasty. The regular flavors were a good, solid assortment. The hot fudge on the sundae was dark and rich, and combined well with the ice cream. The sundae itself was a nicely proportioned combination of ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and topping. The prices are not cheap, but the portions are generous and both are reasonable for an upscale, small-batch ice cream store.

We're thrilled we have the Hudson location in addition to the West Concord location, especially since it's so close to where I work. The ice cream is delicious.

Best Salted Caramel ice cream around!

Sam, August 13, 2019

I enjoyed my visit, and thank you for the gift certificate. My husband had a dish of lime sorbet that he said was very good. I had a cone with sweet cream ice cream. I have had better; this seemed like just vanilla. The best part of the evening was bumping into a friend & meeting her husband, and then bumping into friends I had not seen in more than 5 years. Great meeting spot! EVERYONE likes ice cream!
