While the store itself isn't too appealing -- bare bones white with cheap red furniture -- the ice cream was excellent. If you can't eat dairy, try the raspberry sorbet -- just fantastic. Loads of toppings to choose from. While we loved the food, we really hated seeing one of the staff members stand on the counter in her dirty... More

We arrived early afternoon after an hour drive to check out this place. After several minutes of listening to my family debate on the posted flavors, my 5 and 6 year old girls chose a flavor. That's when the counter girl decided to finally let us know that they weren't even selling that day the flavors listed on their board.... More

Ashley's is an institution here in Guilford. Their ice cream is the best, and it's a tradition for families to stop here after important school events. Or any events, for that matter. Chances are we'll know one of the girls working behind the cooler, and it's always fun to see them hand-pack a quart of freshly made ice cream. Our... More

Mink CT chain of gourmet ice cream. The rich slightly gooey type. Top-tier taste and good selection of toppings. They say the milk is from hormone free cows but I'm not sure -- I think they should play that up more if that is the case. It is always fun to look at the crayon Ashley drawings on the wall... More

I wanted to bring an ice cream cake to my son-in-law. I had brought a cooler but the cake did not fit. The owner was so kind and loaned me one. The cake was still frozen three hours later and it was DELICIOUS!! What a great hit it was.

I have to give Ashely's an excellent rating. I just have to. The ice cream is amazing. I have my favorites- for sure. Lemon Pie- a spring and summer flavor is to me, their finest. Tangy and sweet and creamy and bits of pie crust to boot. Just a bit. Milky Way has made a rare appearance and it is... More

Love Ashley's coconut ice cream but tried a scoop of coconut nonfat yogurt & it was amazing! Less guilt too!

Ashley's is the best ice cream parlor in Guilford. They have lots of flavor choices, and any ice cream can be made into a sundae. We decided that, rather then have an overpriced dessert at a restaurant we ate at earlier, we'd come here for sundaes. We've been to Ashley's numerous times and enjoyed it. My wife sampled a pumpkin... More
