Visited Ashley's in March after dinner to satisfy a chocolate craving. Ashley's has a varitey of ice cream flavors and also some frozen yogurt. It's pretty much what you'd expect out of a New England ice cream scoop shop. There is nothing specific which blew me out of the water about the place but I did think it was a... More

The frozen yogurt selection is amazing for someone who cannot eat ice cream! Our grandchildren love sitting on the green with their cones.

We love ice cream. But I try to keep it low fat and my husband avoids sugar. We can stick to those goals as Ashley's .... or go hog wild. We love getting a cup and then sitting on a bench on the green.

My favorite ice cream place (right after Cows of Canada) is any Ashley's I can find. I am addicted to the bittersweet chocolate ice cream and bittersweet hot fudge sauce. I limit myself to the kids size but lust after more.

Storefront ice cream store facing the Branford Green. Crowded for town events, OK otherwise. There are so many choices that it is hard to make up your mind. As an icream fanatic I rate it a bit below Ben and Jerrys in Vermont but it might well be the best in the greater New Haven area. You can get other... More

I love going to Ashley's. There's either a new spin on an old favorite flavor, or a new blend waiting to be tried. The ice cream is fresh tasting and fun. The perfect ending for a stroll on the green.

When we went inside and got on line, there were only around 20 people ahead of us. The line moved fast, and we got to witness some very talented young women use a lot of elbow grease in stuffing around a quart of ice cream into a pint, and actually achieving success-- we were in awe! The list of flavors... More
