Reasons To Be Cheerful

There are so many reason to be cheerful here. Every flavor of homemade ice cream you can think of (with incredibly creative names) like E.T. and Black Raspberry Peacock… plus great coffee. What’s not to like? They have special hours right now with a take out window. Stand six feet apart and they’ll take your order. Take a look at their website. Yum!

I got the blueberry cheesecake flavor. It was great, but the portions were smaller than I expected.

If you are looking to book a cute, vintage ice cream truck for your event, look no further. Reasons To Be Cheerful has a wonderful ice cream truck called the Chillwagon, and it was a huge hit at our wedding. The owner, Phil, was wonderful and great to work with. Our guests loved them and I feel like the ice cream truck pulling up on the lawn of our venue at the end of dinner was a moment our guests will really remember! The ice cream is delicious, too. They were hands down my favorite vendor at my wedding and I am so glad we had them there!

One of the many reasons I'm glad the pandemic is in the rear-view mirror is I can get out to some of my favorite ice cream places. And if you're like me and you enjoy home-made ice cream (in unique flavors), you'll want to make a trip to Concord and stop at Reasons to Be Cheerful. I'm a big fan of the Coffee Heath, and the Maple is wonderful, but there's always something new to try. Friendly servers, and you can take out or eat in-- there's a charming little dining area in the rear; it has a statue of a cow (of course), and art-work on the walls. There's never a bad time for an ice cream, and I really enjoy having that ice cream at Reasons to Be Cheerful.

Staff was friendly and attentive. Offered suggestions while we were debating. Ice cream was smooth, coffee ice cream had a good flavor. Super cute shop.

Many flavors and toppings to choose from. Can make whatever flavor into soft serve. I thought the ice cream was good and prices were reasonable.

Delicious every time. Good selection of products. It would be great if the on line ordering was easier to use and the sign board outside were expanded to...

We got the So Simple ice cream cake for a birthday. It is SO DELICIOUS. I cannot stop eating it! The ice cream is smooth and creamy, and the fudge and jimmies filling and topping are the perfect amount to complement the ice cream without making the cake into a sundae. I cannot wait to try the other ice cream cake flavors!

Very quaint ice cream shop. Lots of interesting flavors of ice cream, sorbet, frozen yogurt. All the topping that your heart desires. Eat in or take out. Worth the visit.

Good ice cream. open year round. Had lots of other sweets but I mostly look for the ice cream.

everytime I go here, I am very cheerful. It must be something to do with their salted caramel. I appreciate that all the staff wear masks, and gloves, and encourage patrons to do the same - not all do :(

Delightful little place in West Concord serves a wide variety of homemade flavors. If you prefer your ice cream softer, they'll put it in their swirly machine. Lots of toppings and success too. Highly recommend.

Best unusual ice cream selection ever. I adore the rosewater flavor. They stock more traditional flavors as well if you're less adventurous. The bottled sodas are fun but the flavors weren't up my alley...though I have been told they are an acquired taste and my friend from the Middle East thought they were fantastic. The staff can be hit and miss though they are mostly really kind and attentive - I did run into one staff person once who was less than enjoyable, but that appears to have been the exception to the rule. There is parking but seating is limited. This is a great late night spot if you are looking for a sweet nightcap.

A real treat. we are fortunate to have the Reasons not only in the community. A real asset which adds to the quality of life in West Concord.

Best cookie dough ice cream ever. Amazing dough to ice cream ratio. At first glance, the base doesn't look vanilla but it is and it's perfectly creamy and...

Very good ice cream. Many flavors to choose from. One scoop is a lot of ice cream, about 6 ounces.

Tasty ice cream served by pleasant folks, who are willing to improvise. My kid likes plain (no chocolate chips) strawberry ice cream. On the day in question, there was none. Staff made some using strawberries and vanilla ice cream (and the cool mix-in machine that can make soft-serve out of any flavor(s) you want, om nom). Boy was thrilled. Well done them!

This was my first time here and wasn't expecting to get anything myself because I don't eat dairy.. and I had made peace with the fact that I was going to watch my kids eat ice cream while I sipped my tea.. but guess what??? Non-dairy birthday cake flavor, non dairy black raspberry, AND non dairy cookies and [no] cream! I was so excited! I WILL be back here.

Lovely neighborhood ice cream place with a delicious ice cream!
Michael Iveson   August 21, 2018
Bumping little ice cream joint. Large scoops on tiny cones. great flavor and not too sweet. They also have amazing and huge cookies. I think they also have a thing for cereal as there were options for cereal to be mixed into your ice cream and they had a corn flakes and marshmallow cookie.

All the neighborhood kids and families seem to love this place. Friendly service, they work with local groups like the girl scouts. When we go, there is...
