What should I eat?

Kool Kone’s menu boasts a variety of traditional Cape Cod seafood delights, including fried clams, clam cakes, lobster rolls, quahogs, and clam chowder. The lobster roll, a standout choice, features succulent lobster lightly dressed with mayonnaise on a buttered, grilled hot dog roll. It’s served with a generous side of fries and coleslaw.

The stuffed quahog, about the size of a tennis ball, offers a rich blend of flavors with a smoky undertone, consisting of peppers, linguica, clams, and onions, all encased in a soft, bready shell.

For a light appetizer, the clam cakes are perfect—airy, fluffy, and filled with the right balance of clams, ideal for dipping in tartar sauce. The fried clams should not be missed, known for their fresh, crunchy texture, complete with tender bellies. Completing the New England experience, the clam chowder features a rich, creamy broth, brimming with finely chopped clams.

Kool Whiz???

A “Kool Wiz” is a customizable treat from Kool Kone, where you can blend any topping of your choice with their exceptionally creamy and rich soft serve. The options for toppings are extensive, ranging from candy like Sour Patch Kids, Skittles, and gummy bears, to classics like Oreos, M&M’s, and Twix. For example, you might try coffee-flavored soft serve mixed with M&M’s for a delightful treat.

Additionally, Kool Kone offers unique ice cream flavors like “Dinosaur Crunch,” a vibrant blue vanilla ice cream mixed with Cocoa Krispies, orange pineapple chunks, and salted caramel pretzels. The menu also includes a variety of other frozen specialties such as frappes, ice cream cookie sandwiches, and shaved ice.
