The best ice cream I've had in a very long time. In the summer, you usually have to wait in line, but it is worth the wait.

This really isn't the best resaurant in Helena, but it does have really great ice cream. Lots of flavors to choose from. It was the perfect spot for an afternoon snack and judging by the constant stream of people coming in and out while we sat outside to eat our cones, the folks in Helena agree!

Someone told us the ice cream at Big Dipper in Helena wasn't as good as in Missoula, and they were right. This place isn't helped, charmwise, by being on the awful dead pedestrian "mall" of lower Last Chance Gulch. Zero charm factor, just OK ice cream.

This is a absolutely wonderful place to go for an ice cream treat. We had ice cream sundaes, they were old fashioned and so good. We sat outside in the cool evening air on the walking mall downtown. It was lovely, such a neat area of Helena. The selection of ice cream confections at this wonderful place was superb! This is a must go place in Helena!

After our good lunch at Taco Del Sol, we walked by Big Dipper and walked in for desert on a whim. They had some unique flavors including black licorice! I tried a bite, it was good, but I opted for mexican chocolate. It was a smooth rich chocolate with a hint of cinnamon. This is probably the best ice cream I have ever eaten! It's worth the effort to stop by if you are in the area.
