Bubbling Brook has been serving Westwood and the surrounding communities since 1951. Located on Rt. 109 in Westwood, the opening of "The Brook" symbolizes the start and end of summer for many in the community and is often a rite of passage for those that are new to the area.
Bubbling Brook began as the Windmill Restaurant and was relocated to Rt 109 when Rt 128 Highway was built in 1951. The present building was an old school house and was converted to the now standing Bubbling Brook Ice Cream. The soft serve “Freeze” portion was added on in 1977.
What does the 1897 stand for on the roof? 1897 was the year Westwood separated from Dedham to become its own incorporated town. You will see that year on many of the “Entering Westwood” signs thought out town.
We were a full service seasonal restaurant with 5 operating ice cream windows for many years, until Covid-19 struck. We were forced to close down our small dining room and pivot to take out only for the next 3 years. This past year, due to some staffing changes, we have once again pivoted to only serving ice cream.
We love being a tradition for many families in the surrounding areas and look forward to seeing you for ice cream soon!
