South Shore Ice Cream Shop Guide

Your Guide to Ice Cream Shops on Boston's South Shore

By Laurie Corbett, Publisher, Macaroni Kid South Shore Boston May 18, 2020

Ice cream shops across the South Shore are scooping but maybe in a different manner than in year's past. All local small businesses need our support more than ever. This year we have rounded all of the ice cream and frozen yogurt shops (and some other ice cream serving establishments) in Abington, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hanover, Hanson, Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke, Rockland, Scituate and Whitman that are currently open. Updates will be made as things change, but please know that things change quickly and you are encouraged to call locations to confirm they are open before visiting. Also, some locations are offering order ahead only, or pick on specific days only.  Do you know of an ice cream or frozen yogurt shop that is open that we missed? E-mail so we can add them!

Notes - photos are from before Covid-19/Social Distancing and we have removed our review links for the time being.
