Great flavors, great texture, great prices, always a treat to get ice cream here. Don't worry if line looks too long, the kids working there do a great job of serving everyone efficiently.

You'll see lots of locals here, but also lots of folks from towns miles away. Dr. Mike's is a long-time favorite, and for good reason: it makes consistently great ice cream. If you're a first-timer, be sure to try the long-time favorite flavor: Chocolate Lace and Cream.

I have taken this ride several time and am always please with the ice cream.

This time I choose the Chocolate Lace, with Maple Pecan and a touch of rich Chocolate. I ordered a medium and it let me taste a few of my favorites as well as the season one (maple pecan). Dr. Mike is known for the chocolate lace and the rich chocolate flavors. The chocolate lace is basically a double cream vanilla ice cream with chunk of chocolate lace which is like a chocolate/ caramel brittle. The rich chocolate will astound you as to how deep a cocoa flavor can be present in an ice cream. The maple pecan has a good maple syrup flavor with crisp fresh pecan pieces as well.

My wife choose the caramel cashew and the chocolate marshmallow cherry. The chocolate marshmallow has the good rich chocolate with some marshmallow mixed in a large chunks of juicy dark cherries. The Carmel cashew was a nice vanilla based ice cream with nuts.

While indulging in this extravagant party, you will note that the ice cream itself is very rich and smooth, the flavors are refined and distinct, and there is not an excess of sugar at all.

They only have a small selection of flavors but each is a winner.

I've eaten a lot of homemade ice cream around CT, and this is my proclaimed favorite. So so creamy and amazing high quality flavor! Flavor selection is small but rotating. Huge portions and the price is fantastic. Shop is very small and ice cream is best enjoyed outside. Entrance is in the back of the building.
