Some people say that all ice cream is the same and these are the kind of people who haven't been to Dippy's. Dippy's ice cream is wonderful. This ice cream place is a staple and I remember it well from my childhood. It continues to be a place I love going back to. I love that there is usually an... More

We love this place! The owner is friendly and not cheap, he gives good portions. His staff doesn't do the best job but when he works my ice cream is awesome!!

Great and wide selection of ice cream and novelties. The owner supports a lot of community efforts so I like to support his business. Makes a great chocolate malt or black and white. Something for everyone in the family

I got an ice cream cake here for the first time. I let it sit out to warm up and once I picked up the piece the crunchies fell all over. The bottom layer was so thin that it couldn't handle the weight of all the yummy chocolate crunchies. The great thing about this cake was it was a marble... More

Great soft serve ice cream. I tried the chocolate covered oreos and they had that freezer taste and also tasted of some sort of chemical, perhaps what they use to clean the glass? I don't know, everything else is great however.

A small ice cream parlor that has a variety of ice cream that changes all the time. The hot fudge is great, I believe they use Hersey's. You can also purchase cakes, ice cream sandwiches (flying saucer) and other novelty items. They are open year round, but once when we went during the winter time, the ice cream didn't taste... More

Ice cram is very fresh with a great taste. My recommendation is to put more of the crunchies in the cake.

My sons luv Dippy's Ice Cream cakes. Over the years I have bought several here. Their ice cream is creamy with just the right amount of sweetness and flavor. We have also gone to Dippy's for Ice cream cones or Sundae's while out shopping in the area's. Truly they serve the best ice cream in Waterbury that I have had.... More
