A lot of sit-down space for an ice-cream parlor. Friendly service, very tasty flavors (Graham Central Station was a big hit) and good-sized portions for a single scoop.

We were looking for deliciousness of ice cream and nailed it. Big selection and even the petite size was more than enough.

Whenever we are in the area and its in season, we will always go out of our way to make a stop at J. Foster Ice Cream. (it's as if our stomaches have taken over the steering wheel or at least that's what I tell the "Weight Watcher" folks.) Anyway, as stated by other reviewers, J. Foster's is independently owned,...

Love J Foster's Ice cream. It is so creamy and rich, with no artificial flavorings - how all ice cream should be made! My favorite flavors are Rosehips, Cashew Caramel and the Kahlua. They also have run of the mill flavors, such as mint chocolate chip and vanilla. Don't get me wrong though, these are just as luxurious as the... More

I've only been to the Avon store. I really like the fact that this is a local, independent business. Despite my preference for that, this outfit makes great ice cream. No .... delicious ice cream. If you are in the Farmington Valley for any reason, stopping by J. Foster is a must, an absolute must. Personally, I am partial to... More
