Ice Cream and More at Dairy Joy, Weston

photo of Dairy Joy, Weston, Massachusetts Last Sunday, three of us stopped at Dairy Joy in Weston on the way back from a day of apple picking at the Honeypot Hill Orchard in Stow. For those of you who haven't been to Dairy Joy, it is a classic ice cream stand on Route 117 in the heart of Weston. The place is wildly popular with both locals and folks from other parts of the Boston area, and for good reason; the ice cream is excellent, and the burgers, hot dogs, fried clams, and assorted sandwiches are perfect for those lazy summer or fall days.

We just stuck with soft-serve ice cream, as a large group of us had done a picnic at Honeypot, but the smell of the hot dogs and fried clams nearly made me want to have a second lunch. I resisted, though, knowing that I would be back before they close for the season sometime later in the fall.

For those who would like the address for Dairy Joy, here it is: Dairy Joy, 331 North Avenue, Weston, MA 02493; the phone number is (781) 894-7144.

Dairy Joy in Weston is the best ice cream place I've ever been to. My family and I drive there from Brockton (south shore) every Memorial Day and various days throughout the year. If you are looking for some good ice cream and great food, Dairy Joy is the place to go!

Grew up in Weston. Spent many a day at Dairy Joy in the 1970's and enjoyed the ice cream and the fried clams.

Got some more soft serve ice cream at Dairy Joy last night, though I had to eat it quick because it was so hot out. The place was actually not too crowded at 8:00 PM, especially considering the heat wave that we have been in of late.
