Good ice cream, but poor value.

We stopped here after dinner. My wife had some coffee flavor: I don't usually like coffee ice cream, but it tasted rich and creamy. I had pistachio, which tasted fine and had a rich flavor and texture, although I thought the nuts detracted from the experience. Basically it's definitely high-quality... read more

They have the best low fat no sugar ice cream I have ever eaten. Their hot fudge sauce is so rich and tastes bittersweet. The ice cream cakes and pies are great for any occasion. We used to get the cakes to celebrate birthdays at work. The best ice cream in CT.

Best Ice Cream I've ever had. Lo❤️E it. The floor is always sticky because there isn't adult supervision but the staff has always been friendly and competent. The are SO much better than Ben & Jerry's. Creative & season flavors. The hot fudge & whipped cream are awesome!! Sadly, I just needed to go dairy free. Not having my Ashley's... More

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.
