Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium


Random review: “The employees were friendly, the prices reasonable and the serving sizes good as well. It’s a cute little store and right on the main strip, definitely worth a visit to cure your ice cream or chocolate craving after a day of hiking at Acadia.”

Random review: “They have the usually flavors that we all come to love for ice cream but also have some funky ones called the Dirty Turtle and I’m Not Sure Yet.  Plus they make some amazing homemade dairy free options as well. Staff is always super fast and friendly.”

Stewmann’s Scoops


Random review: There’s no shortage of ice cream places in Bar Harbor, but I’m glad I stopped by this place. They have nice outdoor seating a nice selection of flavors. Maine deer tracks was pretty good.
