Olde Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor-best in the shore!

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 young college age staffers are very polite and accommodating. It's worth the wait. You must experience... read more

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.

Hey guys it's ok but it's only ice cream and not near the best. It's good for the area but I have had better. They used to make all of their own, now many flavors are purchased. Tried a side by side taste test with another ice cream place from Newark and Hoffman ' s didn't come close. We will... More

Hands down one of the best Ice Cream stores you will ever enter. Homemade in house you can see them adding in stuff while making the ice cream. The kids love the place and if I could would go a few times a week, used to when I was in my 20's and never gained a pound. If you are... More
