I almost wish I didn't live within walking distance of Smores Milkshakes at Timothy's... it is so delicious! I take all visitors here because it is absolutely worth it to get good quality ice cream.

Really great ice cream in the Blackrock area of Bridgeport. If you appreciate good ice cream made with real passion, Timothy's is the place for you. My recommendation is the Blackrock ice cream, named after the area of the city the shop is in. There's a huge choice of flavours and types. I enjoy getting a sundae with marshmallows, strawberries,... More

When I was looking for an apartment in Fairfield, my estate agent got me a cone from Timothy's, then in Fairfield Centre. Now I live in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport, and can walk to Timothy's when the mood for ice cream hits. I make it a habit to sample locally-made ice cream when I travel, and Timothy's is...

Amazing home made ice cream and icecream cake! I had a cake made for my birthday and it was great! All my guests loved it and couldn't get enough.

Love this place SO much!!! Small family owned business - making ice cream right :) I think they should package and sell it. I always leave feeling I should have paid more - it's truly a premium product! Don't forget to tip 😜

Timothy's has been around Fairfield for a long time. He has moved around but the ice cream has remained consistently good over the years. It's all homemade and flavors change daily and with seasons. They also always have a couple of yogurts and make their own waffle bowls. Timothy's was the first in our town to hand mix your choice... More

Timothy's is to ice cream in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport what Pepe's is to pizza in New Haven. Can't say the service is great. It's usually only 1 or 2 people working behind the counter, often Timothy himself. Can't say the atmosphere is anything special. They have a few tables and some chairs. It's relatively small. But boy... More
