Homemade at Susie’s Big Dipper in Downtown Piqua

PIQUA – Susie’s Big Dipper is a small town ice cream shop and café that specializes in using as many natural ingredients as possible to make homemade ice cream, soups and sandwiches. This includes a popular chicken salad sandwich and the Susie Q (it’s like a Maid-Rite), both pictured here. The café also has BBQ pulled pork and shredded chicken sandwiches, paninis, salads and more.

   Along with a variety of different ice cream flavors, including seasonal flavors, the café has frozen bananas, homemade chocolate brownies, cookies and ice cream sandwiches, as well as sundaes, shakes and malts and more. Ice cream and frozen soups can be purchased on the go. Soups include potato bacon cheddar, clam chowder, vegetable beef and chili.

   On Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. the café serves Angus burgers and locally made bratwursts, which they cook out on their back patio.
