There is nothing better after a long trek on the Farmington Canal Trail then a pit stop at Wentworth's. There are traditional and eclectic flavors and a consistency that keeps everyone returning cone after cone. I especially love Rum Raisin. Wentworth's is surrounded by a wonderful serene outdoor setting that is great on a warm sunny spring day.

Best ice cream in the state! Been going there for almost 25 years Dozens of homemade flavors available every day with special flavors each week Not open on Sundays, and be prepared for long lines especially during summer time on Friday and Saturday nights Definitely worth the wait

Wentworths ice cream is sinfully delicious. Great flavors, and a very nice outdoor area to sit and enjoy! It is also a short side trip off the Farmington canal bike trail. A nice way to spend a sunny afternoon, and after a bike ride I don't feel guilty about having a treat!

Have a summer place on Cape Cod where an Ice Cream shop named 4Seas rules the world... That good. But Wentworth matches if not betters. Peach is seasonal and fabulous but the Strawberry is always available and is incredible. Go here you will like!!

Often wish they were open on Sundays so we could go there more often when driving by that way, On the other hand , it's a family business and they need a day off, so we get that. I know they want to keep people moving, but make the outside seating a little more comfortable and well-lit after sunset without... More

I've been going to Wentworths for over thirty years. Their ice cream is excellent. The price is high but you get enough ice cream to justify it. My hubby's favorite is the coconut mounds and I always get a hot fudge sundae with homemade whip cream and great toppings. If you are in the town of Hamden you don't want... More

If you are looking for high quality ice cream and a nice setting in which to eat it Wentworths is a great place to go. They have a wide variety of traditional ice cream, low calorie and frozen yogurt. And there are also a wide variety of toppings. You can sit inside or outside to enjoy your treat.

Love the wide variety of choices! I like that all the ingredients are fresh or made from scratch. Regina is always discovering new combinations. Worth the drive to!
