Tiny little storefront (extra seating upstairs, or just take it and stroll the Walking Mall like the locals do) with a powerhouse collection of flavors. Something for everyone. I tend to stick to the Junior Dipper - just the right amount of ice cream, sundae style. My sweetie's go-to option is the Espresso Quake Shake, hands down. Always a fun option to grab a RootBeer Float, in case you aren't digging in to one of their unique flavor offerings.

The Big Dipper is the best ice cream shop in Helena. They have great ice cream and offer some fun, and sometimes interesting flavors. Always worth to go to the Big Dipper

A real treat while you're in Helena. Sit on a bench outside and watch the people on the walking mall. You'll love the ice cream, unusual flavors, and great service. You'll be back several times. Pick up some to take home for the freezer.

This little shop is located on the Last Chance Gulch walking mall and features Montana-made ice cream. Really delicious! I ordered what I thought was a cup of ice cream and got a sundae in a banana boat - much larger than I thought it would be. My daughter had what she said was the best waffle cone she had ever tasted.
