My home village. Great friendly atmosphere and great gathering place where the ice cream is always plentiful and good food is a given. Come join the locals and read about the history of Drenthe and it's ancestors.

I went to the Village Dipper for the first time the other night and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was cute, clean, old-fashioned and homey, the girls behind the counter were extremely pleasant, and the servings of ice cream were generous. It was clearly a favorite place among the locals. A very good experience, and I will certainly return.

My whole family went to the Dippper last night to celebrate my sisters birthday and we ate dinner and ice cream there. We kinda had to eat in shifts because we had a large group but the food tasted great and we had really good service. We live close by and having been going every summer since they opened:)

Everything was great. Everyone enjoyed their sandwiches, fries and salads. Food was freshly prepared and tasty. Very reasonable. Fed 7 for $30. Then we got the desserts. Everyone LOVED the desserts. Too many things to chose from. We will have to come back.

The Drenthe Village Dipper is a wonderful setting in the country. They now have a bike path that ends at their shop, which gives you a reason to ride your bike. The restaurant is clean and has excellent food and great ice cream desserts. Take a step back in time and learn more about Drenthe when it was a booming... More

Whenever we ask our grandkids where they would like to go for ice cream or even for dinner - it's always the Dipper! And.........we love it too! Doreen and her crew are always friendly and so welcoming to all. It's a great place to meet old and many new friends! We really appreciate the Dipper!
