Review by: Michael Stern

Timothy’s no longer uses the salt-and-ice churners that stand in the front window, but the ice cream made here remains classic. It is simple, rich-but-not-cloying, sweet-but-not-too-sweet ice cream; ice cream that is, in our book, just about perfect.

Several dozen different flavors are made in regular rotation. Among the must-eats are Sweet Cream (the purest ice cream of them all), Black Rock (French Vanilla studded with chocolate covered almonds), Dutch Chocolate, Peach, Oreo Cookie, and Banana. Any flavor can be souped up with mix-ins of any kind.

If you choose a sundae, you can have it in a paper cup or in an edible waffle-cup made in one of the pair of waffle irons behind the counter. (Waffle cones also are available.) Sundaes are spectacular, blanketed with silky fudge and whipped cream that is scooped from the big silver bowl in which it is whipped fresh throughout the day.

Accommodations include a slew of indoor tables and a row of plastic chairs outside on the sidewalk, where you can lick your cone or spoon into your cup as life along Fairfield Avenue passes by.

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.
