Sundae School opened its doors on May 26, 1976. At the time we were looking for a way a school teacher, his wife and their year old son could spend summers on the Cape. From the very beginning we knew Sundae School would be something special because of the involvement of so many friends and relatives. Customers responded well to our high quality ice cream made right in front of them in a five gallon batch White Mountain freezer. Soon it became obvious we could not keep up with the demand and added a second ice cream machine. Even so there were many days when we would sell out of ice cream and have to close the doors early. The White Mountain freezers have long since been replaced, but we still make our ice cream daily in small batches.
Over the years our store locations have also grown. The East Orleans store opened in May, 1984. The shop is a great place to stop at on your way to or from Nauset Beach, one of the best on the Cape. It is not very big and has only patio seating, but it has consistently been voted “best ice cream” on the Lower Cape by the readers of Cape Cod Life. A Harwich Port location was added in May, 1998 and serves the people who frequent that beautiful area and its beaches or is a convenient stop on the way to Chatham. All three locations offer the same “best ice cream” but each store has their own personality.
