The best

Best in the valley hands down. Great flavor and very fresh. A nice change from all of the chain joints that just ship everything in from somewhere else.

We have been enjoying J Foster's homemade ice cream in Avon and always take family and friends there. The choice of favors is excellent and unique, the staff are very friendly and efficient. We like being able to sit indoors or out. This is what makes a great summer evening!

We drive from Newington to Avon for this ice cream. The favors they have are tasty and the creamiest we have ever had. They also use real chocolate sprinkles not the imitation wax kind. We visit J Fosters multiple times a month and bring others with us to try it. They end up loving the ice cream as much as... More

Ice cream doesn't get any better than this! We drive 25 minutes just to get the yummiest ice cream in the Hartford area. It is creamy, delicious and amazing! If you find yourself anywhere near Simsbury CT you must stop by and try the best ice cream around.

I went j. Fosters ice cream when they were in the Connecticut building at the eastern states exposition in springfield Massachusetts. They had several unique flavors including maple bacon. The texture is smooth and creamy and the flavors are evenly balanced. Because they have so many unique flavors,even with free samples, it's difficult to choose which one to enjoy.

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,...
