Stopped by for a quick ice cream. Limited flavor selection but very good ice cream. Had Caramel Crunch and Dutch Chocolate. The place could definitely use some updating. Since the ice cream was the reason we were there, I can overlook the surroundings!

Timothy's is a gem in the middle of Black Rock, CT. Every flavor is better than any gelato I have had in Italy or Argentina. My absolute favorite is "Black Rock" which is named after my town...sweet cream base studded with dark chocolate almonds. On a summer night the lines are out the door and with good reason. If you...

There is no better ice-cream around. Top it with homemade hot fudge and fresh whipped cream and you are in heaven. This is our go to for birthday cakes. Order ahead and pick up later than you ask for as they tend to not be ready on time, but worth the delay. Anytime we serve this cake we are asked... More

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...

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 😜
