Downtown Dipper Ice Cream opened Nov. 25 in the heart of Vero Beach.
This has been a dream a few years in the making for Indian River County residents Joey and Stephanie Lucchini, who frequently bring their five children to play at Pocahontas Park and noticed the downtown area didn’t have a dessert shop for families.
Downtown Dipper serves Ice Cream Club ice cream — the same company that supplied Boardwalk Cafe & Ice Cream on the barrier island years ago — and features banana splits, sundaes, milkshakes, ice cream sandwiches and more.

The most popular ice cream flavors so far have been the Butterscotch Bomb, carrot cake and cookies ‘n’ cream. The root beer floats were a fan favorite opening weekend.
Downtown Dipper is one of the few locally owned ice cream shops in Indian River County, Stephanie Lucchini said.
