Business Description

Located in the heart of Missoula, Montana, Big Dipper Ice Cream is a local favorite that has been satisfying sweet cravings for over a decade. The cheerful yellow storefront and playful signage make it hard to miss as you stroll down Higgins Avenue.

As soon as you walk in, you are greeted by a friendly staff member who is always ready to assist you in finding your perfect scoop. Their glass display case showcases a wide variety of flavors, ranging from the classic vanilla and chocolate to their unique, house-made flavors, like huckleberry and chai. They even have vegan and dairy-free options for those with dietary restrictions.

One of the reasons why Big Dipper Ice Cream has gained such a loyal following is their commitment to using high-quality, locally sourced ingredients. Their dairy is sourced from local farms and they use seasonal fruits and herbs in their recipes. This not only supports the local economy but also ensures that each scoop is bursting with fresh, natural flavor.

Aside from their delicious ice cream, Big Dipper Ice Cream also offers an inviting atmosphere that is perfect for enjoying a sweet treat with friends or family. The space is bright and open, with plenty of seating both inside and outside on their charming patio.

If you're looking for a fun and tasty way to cool down on a hot summer day or just need a sweet pick-me-up, Big Dipper Ice Cream is a must-visit destination in Missoula. With their wide variety of flavors, commitment to quality ingredients, and welcoming atmosphere, it's no wonder why they have become a beloved local institution.
