Polar Cave Ice Cream Parlour was established in Mashpee in 1995, for the past fourteen years it has been owned and operated by Mark Lawrence (together with his daughter Kelsey), an entrepreneur and Cape Cod resident for over 30 years. 

Mark brings his many years of experience in the hospitality industry, combined with a  great sense of humour to ensure his customers the “ultimate ice cream experience” with a return visit guaranteed time and time again.  Mark’s daughter, Kelsey (Endicott College, 2017),  has worked alongside him weekends and during school vacations since she was 7 years old  to help make the Polar Cave the finest ice cream parlour on the Cape.

Polar Cave prides itself in serving generous portions of their super premium ice cream (what many consider –” Cape Cod’s Best Ice Cream”) at a fair price, while being firmly committed to providing a fun, family friendly atmosphere.  Our Customer Service is a throwback to “The Good Old Days.”  We are  firm believers in putting the “customer” back in “Customer Service” where you come first and are treated as a valued guest.   It’s not just Ice Cream it’s the total experience………   Our ice cream has been the recipient of many awards, among them Boston.com Best Vanilla on Cape Cod, CapeCodOnLine.com Top 10 Ice Cream and Readers Choice Awards for the past twelve years.  Cape Cod SCORE’s  Build a Better Mousetrap Award 2012 and Cape Cod Children’s Museum Corporate Citizen of the Year 2012.   Mark was awarded the Thanks For Giving Humanitarian Award from the Town of Mashpee in 2016, in recognition of his contrubution to the community.  

We take great pride in our local communities & are proud to be a sponsor of many varied community and charitable activities.

Graduations, Weddings, Birthdays and Office Parties are always the “coolest” gathering when Polar Cave Ice Cream Catering is there.
