Long wait for very good ice cream

I love the ice cream here, I do, even though I don't usually favor ice cream with add-ins. They often have special flavors that you can't find anywhere else. Very creative creamery. I've been to this one, to the one in Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the newest one at 305 Nevins. All great. The only... read more

We couldn't decide which of the numerous flavors to try so we settled on a "flight" of ice cream - 6 small scoops served in a single dish and just enough for the three of us to share. We especially loved the Pistachio Pistachio (pistachio ice cream with pistachios in it) and Ooey Gooey. Be sure to go early or... More

I waited in the longest line on a hot sunny day and it was well worth it. Get one of there six scoop travelers. It is the best way to taste a small sample of each flavor. I had the Snap Crackle, Donna's, Salted Carmel, Sweet Cream etc. It was really good and the staff is really friendly. It is... More

We called into Ample Hills after a long day out for some takeaway - good decision. We both tried a couple of flavours and they were all yummy. But by far the best was Peppermint Party - outstanding flavour and texture. If your in the area , pay this place a visit...

Visited this Creamery for work related reasons. While I waited I decided to try the champagne sorbet and OMG it was the best thing ever!!! It can get pricey but it is worth it..

I discovered Ample Hills by driving by one day. So glad I decided to go in. Fresh and delicious! Lotsa fun & interesting flavors. The Salted Crack Caramel is sinful! Cute atmosphere. Great outdoor spot upstairs. If you love ice cream, you must try this place!

The ice cream is delicious with some really unique flavors, but the wait time is insane. There's almost always a huge line, sometimes stretching down the block. Go early in the morning or when the weather's not good to beat the crowd.

I am not a huge ice cream lover. If given the choice, I'll choose a slice of New York cheesecake over an ice cream cone...except when it comes to Ample Hill ice cream. This ice cream is the hands-down-no-holds-barred best ice cream in New York! I even paid a fortune to have it shipped to Jackson, Wyoming, where I spent... More

Great ice cream! I have also had their chocolate frozen yogurt and it was delicous. Definitely be prepared to wait but it is worth it!

NYC has everything, right? That's what I thought when I moved here from Boston last century. However, Boston had much better ice cream shops. Finally, NYC has an ice cream shop that can compete with Boston's. The ice cream here is delicious and they come up with some pretty great flavors. One particular favorite was "Brooklyn's Finest" features coffee ice... More
