Some quick research online told me Dewey’s, in Center Harbor, carried homemade ice cream. So my husband and I added it into our schedule. It wasn’t until we were in line that we realized they actually carry Richardson’s ice cream. And no, not the lesser-known Richardson’s in NH, but the Richardson’s in MA that you’ve probably enjoyed before.
I’d love to return here for coffee or a meal, but in the meantime, here is my review of the ice cream. It’s in an adorable location in a beautiful town, so it’s worth a visit to walk by the water and have an ice cream. And if you know of any homemade ice cream in that area that deserves a visit, please let me know!
Cake Batter – It’s a cake batter base, with cake pieces. The base almost reminds me of frosting! It’s a very bright flavor, very childlike. I enjoyed it. Doesn’t top Blake’s but it’s very good. (Blake’s throws some chocolate frosting in there that really makes it!)
Phantom Berry – Oh my goodness. This is black raspberry ice cream with chocolate cookies. The cookies are clearly not Oreos, they are MUCH better, with a killer crunch, and brownie pieces are also included. It’s like a sundae in itself! Super sweet and so tasty. It was so good that Ross wanted to go back for another scoop! The cookies aren’t too sweet either which really helps keep all of this in proportion and not get old. They have a bit of saltiness too.
Death By Chocolate – The base isn’t too dark or too light, just classic chocolate, with great brownie pieces and a fudgy cold chocolate syrup. There is some bitterness to the base and it isn’t too sweet. It would be a fun base for chilies! The base works well so the mix-ins aren’t overkill = you can really taste all of the flavors.
Dewey’s has a great vibe and awesome seating. It would be a great place to hang out. Generally speaking Richardson’s is excellent in terms of consistency, and Phantom Berry gets one of our highest recommendations. Portions are very large, and prices are reasonable at $3.45, $4.35 and $5.25 with tax included. We spent $8.50 for the two of us. Another plus? They offered to do two different flavors in a kiddie! Super nice.
So while I wouldn’t make Dewey’s a destination because you can get Richardson’s in many places, if you’re in the area I really recommend a visit. And if you try their lunch or coffee, let me know how it is!
Thanks for reading, and have a great day.
