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!

I loved the ice cream
we adore Reasons to be Cheerful and would drive the extra miles to enjoy their ice cream. Such a friendly crew and delicious ice cream, the best fudge and actual honest-to-God whipped cream. Sadly, I forgot the nuts! (Must go back!!!) Skip the lines at the touristy place and check out this wonderful shop. The owner is super nice. Never had a bad experience at RTBC.

Excellent ice cream and service!
The ice cream at Reasons was some of the best I ever had. The Chocolate and Cookie was amazing and the Vanilla Heath Bar was better than anyone else's.
So so good! Also shopped at 2 other local stores while there so definitely put us in the local economy.
Loved Reasons to be Cheerful! I've lived in the area for a while but had never been there before, and will certainly be back. The ice cream had that great homemade texture, the flavors were creative, and staff was friendly. Thank you!
Great selection and delicious ice cream
