I hadn't been here in years as we no longer live in the area. The ice cream is every bit as delicious as I remember!! I had two scoops and couldn't finish it all. Very generous servings. The chocolate lace is amazing!

They serve excellent ice cream, which keeps some classic staples, but also tries to change some up each day to provide variety. There's ample parking in an understated but pretty classic Connecticut setting. Each day they don't produce a lot of ice cream, but stay...More

Dr . Mike is a Bethel fixture. With so many ice cream choices in the area, this ice cream continues to rate highly. Fruited flavors are never icy or overly sweet. The texture is smooth and creamy and the chocolate lace is unbeatable. Definitely a...More

Very good ice cream, but very limited. Only 8 or 10 flavors on any given day. They rotate. Not very friendly. Ferris Acres Creamery in Newtown, about a 10 minute drive away, is MUCH nicer, in my opinion. Better choice, much nicer energy, and real...More
