Easy celiac friendly ice cream experience. They have an allergy freezer and protocols for prevent cross contamination. They have other gluten-free flavors but there may be cross contamination. I eat the hot fudge and have no issues.

Willing to scoop from a fresh container and clean scoop! They have an allergy binder that they’re able to bring out if you have any questions! They do have an allergy freezer with some flavors as well.

There is an “allergy cooler” of 6-8 safe flavors. Hot fudge and toppings are not recommended because of potential contamination.

This was great! They have an "allergy cooler" with different ice cream. They make it a point to tell you that they do not reuse the scoops in the allergy cooler. Every order from the cooler gets a fresh scoop. The hot fugde is GF too! The ice cream is delicious!

Woo! I thought ice cream shops were dead to me, but I felt so safe here! They have an allergy-free section and used a fresh scoop. I had their ice cream three days in a row 😉

They keep a limited amount of ice cream in an allergy freezer. These containers are untouched and free from cross contamination. They use clean scoops to make sure they don't spread allergens. Girl at the counter was very helpful and knew answers to all our questions.

Separate freezer for gluten free ice cream flavors. When I brought up my allergy they immediately offered to get a clean scoop and use a new container.

What they didn't know on the spot, they pulled out their books or boxes for ingredients.

I have not had roadside homemade ice cream in years! They only recommend the basic flavors like chocolate and vanilla from their allergy safe freezer. They were able to offer me some safe toppings of hot fudge for a sundae! What a special treat! I had to go back again before leaving and it was just as good the 2nd time around and the server remembered me and took great care! Loved the ice cream really rich, great flavor and super creamy!

Nothing wrong on the GF end but wasn't impressed with the ice cream so if you find another place I'd go there. My ice cream tasted equal to if not worse than store bought in the freezer at home. It also tasted freezer burnt.

Delicious homemade ice cream! I got a mini banana split and it was gigantic. Ice cream is gluten free and some toppings too. Oh and the whipped cream is homemade too! Yum! A must stop when on the Cape, but be warned its always busy!

We have been visiting Sundae School for many years and love it. In the past, I have been able to order almost any gf ice cream and the scooper would open a new container from the back to scoop from. This is no longer the case. There is now a separate allergy free freezer that only contains about 8 flavors, 2 or 3 of them are not gluten free, such as cookie dough and Oreo. The ones that are gluten free are vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, mint chip and black raspberry. While I do appreciate that they take the time and precautions to avoid cross-contamination (they change gloves, use clean scoops, only use to-go containers instead of glass bowls and get clean plastic spoon out of box), it is a little sad to go into an ice cream parlor that has so many gluten free flavors and only be able to choose the most basic flavors. Oh, and the toppings? Also not gluten free because of cross contamination.

(Cutie girl's mom says...) The dedicated allergy freezer is a great idea, but the young summer staff person who took our order first told us anything in the case was gluten free - including the cookie dough and Oreo flavored, then when we questioned that, she said avoid anything with additives. We asked about the mint chip and she then asked "Why would there be gluten in chocolate chips?" She then asked someone else who said the mint chip was fine. The handling was also a little confused. Our scooper washed her hands and arms really well, but when there was no clean allergy scoop, she only washed up one and scooped out three different flavors with the same scoop, which made me wonder about possible cross-contamination with the Oreo and cookie dough flavors. No one got sick, but all noted the ice cream was a bit freezer burned/stale which made us think the allergy case contents don't turnover that frequently.

Many flavors are GF. They will use a new scoop and get your ice cream from a new container in the back to avoid cross contamination. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful!
