J Foster has fabulous ice cream. For the most part, I order the Graham Central Station as it is one of their signature flavors and I love it a lot. I did try the chocolate and it tastes more like dark chocolate which is why my son promptly ate my Graham Central Station ice cream instead of his chocolate. They... More

The home made hard ice cream is outstanding. We enjoyed strawberry and mocha chip ice cream while sitting outside over looking the park area. A real treat!!!!

Best ice cream around. Large portions, always fresh, nice young people working there. Location is clean and you can eat inside or out.

If you are looking for a sweet treat in a quaint spot, this is it. The small cones come with two scoops. Four of us got what we want for less than $15. The chocolate peanut butter had huge chunks of real PB in it--delish!

The servers are always friendly here and the ice cream is one of the better options around. Try the Graham Central Station - graham cracker ice cream with chocolate chunks and pieces of chocolate covered graham cracker - one of the best ice cream flavor I've ever had.

We live in town and stop by there often and sit outdoors under the big shade tree and enjoy their delicious ice cream. It's fun to sit and watch the world go by. Great little place. Next to a small mall with Starbucks, Subway, great jewelry store - Sarah's, nice gift shop, and florist. Also Metro Bis. Love their ice... More

Great ice cream without that heavy cream film that coats your mouth that you get with too heavy ice creams.

My husband and I like to go on ice cream dates. Just went to J Fosters in Avon and got a small (which was large) with pistachio and mocha chunk covered in hot fudge. The pistachio was awesome, very nutty and white ( not green) which in my mind is the hallmark of a good pistachio. The mocha chunk was... More

If it's hot outside, you just must stop there for an ice cream. Their ice creams are very good, but the variety leaves a little to be desired - half are frozen yoghurt, and most of the rest are chunky. If you love either, you're good, but if you want plain vanilla, plain chocolate (without chunks), plain strawberry (without chunks),... More
