Village Ice Cream Shop

If you are in the Port Clyde area, Village Ice Cream on top of the hill in the center of the village is a cute spot with delicious ice cream. Feel free to take your ice cream down to the dock and walk along the water. You most likely be served by my best friend Karis who has worked there for four summers now. Tell her Margaret says hello if you see her and feel free to ask her any questions, she`d love to help you out.

Dorman`s Dairy Dream

Dessert. Now we`re talking. Located directly across from The Hampton Inn in Thomaston, this is the local hot spot. Since Dormans opened in 1951 it`s been serving delicious ice cream (soft and hard serve), milkshakes, nor`easters and sundaes. Their ice cream is always homemade, the selection is huge and the portions are hearty, what else can you ask for? Dorman`s is the biggest talk of the town every summer and always lined with sports teams, groups of friends and people coming from the movie theater across the street. So if you`re craving ice cream this is the place to go, but be forewarned, you`ll be hooked.
