It's only ice cream

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... read 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

You may get a number and wait for a while, but it really is worth the wait. So many great flavors and toppings. The mint Oreo is outstanding. The ice cream cakes are also delicious.

This ice cream has been around for many years. You may have to wait on a long line during the summer months, but it is worth it. They do have feature flavors and favorites every season. You will keep coming back for more !!! Enjoy

This is THE BEST ice cream ever! I am a chocolate lover but So many flavors I had to try the key lime pie it was amazing! VANILLA is very hard to make taste great and I think I actually enjoyed it more then chocolate. That's how incredible it was!

When my son had an allergic reaction after eating at Hoffman's awhile ago I called to ask for the ingredients. After much back and forth they admitted that the mint chip wasn't made by them and read me the list of ingredients. The mint chip contained artificial color and artificial flavor to my dismay. I honestly don't know if they... More

A trip to the shore never goes by without a visit or three to Hoffman's. You cannot miss with their Ice Cream. Many flavors all made on site. Just get in there and try it. You'll never regret it. We shall return!
