The best ice cream

If you are in Avalon or Stone Harbor, you have to have Springers homemade ice cream. Yes, there can be a line to get in, but it goes fast. It's worth the wait... or go at off times, like I do to get my fix.

I simply asked them to rinse the scoop before scooping my son's ice cream and they refused. I agree that they used to bend over backwards to accommodate but now they have... More

It's good ice cream, but if you're staying in Avalon....Sundae Best is FAR better. However, Springer's is a bigger store and moves the lines much more quickly. Sundae Best does not really have a line, but rather a mass of humanity waiting for the ice cream. Hopefully, they'll figure out how to efficiently handle the summer crowds. But if you're... More

My family and I have been enjoying Springer's Ice Cream and shakes for generations. Once you accept the wait in the enormous lines are worth the wait you will enjoy the summer treat to the fullest. A must have at least once a summer. Enjoy

Every night there are people lined up waiting for wonderful ice cream at this iconic shop! The lines can be intimidating, but there are many servers working fast, so those lines move quickly. Great variety of flavors, delicious!

My wife wanted to spend the weekend in Avalon for her birthday. She is famous for finding the best ice cream wherever she goes. This trip was no exception. She staked out the place 4 hrs before it was to open - I told people she wanted to be the first in line. Later we came back 10 minutes befor... More
