Hands down, the best ice cream I have ever eaten. A friend introduced me to the best combo ever: oreo ice cream with reeses peanut butter cups mixed in, and it has been a favorite ever since. (We call it the "Bubber special" after said friend's weird nickname.) "Mixins" are the best, they spread the ice cream out on the counter and mash the topping directly into it. This softens the ice cream a bit, and spreads the topping out evenly. My only complaint is that the "mixins" only come in one size, sometimes I just don't want that much ice cream. But when that happens, I just ask for a lid and freeze the rest at home to be enjoyed later.

Here's a $2.50 trip to ice cream heaven: Dutch Chocolate ice cream in a just-made waffle cone. The paper cup is used to hold the cone while you pay and gather napkins.

Here's the line-up of mix-ins that can be combined with any kind of ice cream you choose. The white marble counter at the left of the photo is where the mixing gets done.

These waffle cups for sundaes are made in old-fashioned irons at the ice cream counter.

Timothy's has tables scattered about for serious sitting down and spooning into sundaes and banana splits, but many customers get cones to eat on the stroll or in the car.

This is the old-fashioned salt-churn ice cream machine Timothy's used to use. It is now a window display, and the ice cream is made in back.

Outside Timothy's, a row of chairs affords cone-licking customers a view of traffic going past on Fairfield Avenue.
