Mr. Puff’s Hand-Rolled Ice Cream serves delicious cups of ice cream that come in little rolls. The rolls are made by hand on-site, so you can see exactly how so much flavor is packed into the layered tubes.

The rolls of ice cream at Mr. Puff’s Hand-Rolled Ice Cream come in 14 different flavors, with each cup getting its own flavor. Choose from traditional selections, like Domino (vanilla, brownie, and Oreo) and Roseberry (strawberry and graham cracker), or go with something a little more exotic. Matcha Berry (vanilla, green tea, and raspberry) harkens to hand-rolled ice cream’s Thai origins, while Mr. Muff’s Mango on Fire (hot mango and mango) has some sweet heat.

Whatever flavor you get, the combination will be infused throughout the ice cream since it gets rolled together rather than mixed in. You can also top off the base rolls of ice cream with a couple of toppings for added goodness.

The ice cream here isn’t the cheapest on the shore, with prices for cups running about $8 to $10. The extra effort required to make freshly rolled ice cream is well worth paying a little bit extra for.

Mr. Puff’s Hand-Rolled Ice Cream isn’t your standard ice cream parlor with cones, milkshakes, and banana splits. After having your first hand-rolled ice cream, though, you’ll likely not want to go back to the old standard. It’s that unique and that good.

A few of our menu favorites at Mr. Puff’s Hand-Rolled Ice Cream include:

Nutty Butty
Vanilla and peanut butter are good in marshmallows, fluff sandwiches — and ice cream. Try this classic pairing in a new medium, and you’ll wonder why Nutty Butty ice cream isn’t everywhere.

Roseberry
Strawberry and graham crackers combine for a crunchy and berry-flavored treat. Get it with a chocolate topping for a trifecta of flavor.

Matcha Berry
Hand-rolled ice cream is originally from Thailand, and Matcha Berry is a great way to try one of the original flavors. Green tea, vanilla, and raspberry also taste excellent together. 

Plain Coffee
Feeling a little tired in the middle of the afternoon? Skip the iced coffee or frappe, and go with Plain Coffee hand-rolled ice cream instead. It comes with the cream and sugar already added.

Mr. Puff’s Mango on Fire
A non-traditional selection, Mr. Puff’s Mango on Fire will be loved by anyone who puts hot sauce on everything. Sweet and heat make for a potent duo.

Insider Tip:
There isn’t a lot of room inside at Mr. Puff’s Hand-Rolled Ice Cream. If you come at a peak time, plan on getting your ice cream to go — the cups are easy enough to carry while you eat, anyway.
