There are an abundance of flavors, including seasonal optioins( like pumpkin spice). It is all freshly made with fresh ingredients. It is worth a trip if you are visiting the Jersey Shore.

The quality simply is the best. The workers are informed, friendly, and seem to enjoy their ice cream skills. I buy an ice cream cone or 10 pints and quarts- the service never wavers. For me ice cream = Hoffman's.

As a child my grandmother would always give us a special treat of Hoffman's Ice Cream before we left to go home from vacation. Its the best. And quite possibly the best ever pecan ice cream.

We have been stopping at Hoffman's almost since they opened years ago. Our visits to the Spring Lake area are not complete without ice cream from Hoffman's (at least once or twice). They have the best and probably the most extensive variety of flavors we have found anywhere. And we have tried quite a few places! We do think the... More

Love the place and ice cream, we were there tonight and the line was very long. There were 3 people working and one of them was only worried about stocking the counter, not waiting on the line. Someone needs to be in charge managing the place!!!

I've been going to Hoffman's dfor decades! Delicious Ice Cream but last year, we saw a decline in the cleanliness at the Spring Lakke location and this year, no improvement. Long lines to get the ice cream great you but while waiting, you'll notice a dirty floor with trash like napkins all around. No urgency to clean up as we... More

The ice cream is wonderful! They do such a great business they really need to expand their seating. Will definitely go back.

This is the place to go for ice cream. We stopped yesterday after having lunch and it was great. The Coconut Joy is my favorite but you can't go wrong with strawberry bon bon or any other flavor in the store. It is absolutely the best thing to do at the shore. It was late afternoon, no lines, just great... More

Great ice cream, but the place itself has zero charm. The seating area felt kind of dirty and wish they had fun outside seating.

I've been going to Hoffman's for years, and it just gets better and better. Depending on when you go, there may be a significant wait, but it is well worth it.
