Four Seas Ice Cream
Four Seas is the third oldest ice cream shop in New England. The Four Seas shop is located in downtown Centerville on Cape Cod. For decades, the Four Seas has been serving locals and vacationers some wonderfully innovative ice cream flavors.
There are 24 flavors of ice cream available to customers at any given time. Four Seas is the third oldest ice cream shop in New England and considered by ice cream connoisseurs to be one of the best in the country. Situated in an old blacksmith shop in downtown Centerville on Cape Cod, Massachusetts since 1934, it has become a Cape tradition for nearly 75 years.
The name 'Four Seas' comes from a poem by Mabel E. Phinney called 'Cape Cod Calls'. Four Seas is a strictly summer Cape Cod experience, opening a week before Memorial Day on Saturday and closing a week after Labor Day on Sunday In 2009, the season runs from May 16 to September 13.
The owner, Douglas Warren, employs local high school students to whom he gives a high esprit de corps and also runs a scholarship in memory of his brother, Randall. The pay is low, but the perks (like free ice cream all summer long) are good. Warren recently had a reunion of 122 former employees, all but five of the students who have worked at Four Seas over the years.
