Don’t fear the line at Four Seas Ice Cream in Centerville (a village of Barnstable): They’ve been at this for over 75 years and know how to move it along quickly — and yes, the ice cream is that good. Choose from 24 flavors, such as Penuche Pecan, Pink Peppermint Stick, Peach (served at Caroline Kennedy’s wedding), and Chip Chocolate, which, according to legend, was invented here.
Housed in a former blacksmith shop, they churn out fresh ice cream almost daily — for which they win national awards year after year — as well as tasty sandwiches. Give the lobster salad a try while you’re deciding on dessert.
A Mabel E. Phinney poem (“Cape Cod Calls”) inspired the shop’s name, referring to the various bodies of water surrounding the Cape.
