You can't beat Hoffmans Ice Cream. It's very creamy and love the holiday flavors.. In the fall and xmas, they make Pumpkin Pie Ice cream, OMG! It's to die for... Real Crust in the ice cream.. And they also make the Egg Nog.. YUMMO.. All in all it's a good ole fashion place....

We were in the neighborhood and we got a hankering for ice cream. This is my husband's hometown, so we went to Bob Hoffman's. This is where his mother took him and his siblings when they were little kids. While it's a local ice cream shop, it compares to the flavor choices and ingredients as Cold Stone's. The only thing...

I grew up with Hoffman's Ice Cream. They are the best for the hand made ice cream stuffed with wonderful flavors, nuts, berries, etc... The lines in summer validate it, you wait but it moves!

The ice cream is very good. The staff was nice. But WAY too few workers. You know the place is good when the line is out the door. But when it takes 40 minutes to get a cone it is just too long. Owners need to double staff. Reasonable prices, good treat, and nice staff. Just overworked. I will go... More

...and then when the rest of my group started raving over their scopes I could not help myself! There are so many ice cream spot in NJ during the summer but Hoffmans and a main stay and now I know why! The best ice cream and an extensive selection to please everyone in the family.

Anytime we eat ice cream elsewhere, we compare it to Hoffmann and there is no comparison. Numerous varieties, each one delicious. Clean, brightly lit , fresh ice cream. Try a thick shake for a super treat!

I have been going to Hoffman's for over 28 years. I LOVE IT!!!! There are so many flavors to choose from and the kids who work there are great. Everyone is friendly and the ice cream is worth the wait. Portions are huge for the price.
