One of my favorite ice cream places in the whole world. It's somewhere I always go when I am visiting Brooklyn. The hardest part is picking your flavor because they all sound so good.

I am an ice cream snob. So let me tell you that a 2nd best rating from me is actually outstanding (and notice I still gave 5 stars). I had the dark chocolate with sea salt. My sister had that plus the dark chocolate caramel one. Not a word was uttered as we ate some of the best ice cream... More

We visited the Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The ice cream was fantastic - very creamy, with unique flavors. An inexpensive treat to enjoy while in the park.

Gosh did the ice cream melt in our mouths! We had the best time sampling the different flavors and then selecting sugar cone of our choice! What a wonderful way to spend after dinner! We look forward to going back!

Fantastic selection of anything but ordinary, but at the same time excellent flavors, home made in their adjoining creamery. The best ice cream I've had in NYC. If weather permits, enjoy it on the rooftop above the creamery.

They are kind to put 2 flavors in a small cup. To me that is a top notch, client oriented policy. Thanks.

Treat yourself before walking the High Line or reward yourself if you've just finished it as Ample Hills is just yards from one end of this attraction. I like ice cream a lot and what's on offer at AH is among the best I've ever tasted.

A local favorite. It even has a quote by Slim Whitman on the walls. It is always packed for good reasons. It has fabulous and interesting ice cream and yogurt flavors. The upstairs patio is a nice spot to indulge with a good nighttime view of Brooklyn.

We were told that we shouldn't miss this store. The advice was correct. I had a sugar cone with Peppermint patty ice cream and with sweet cream. Someone else had a scoop of crack. I'm told it's called that because the flavor is so addictive. The guy scooping out the ice cream was a show unto himself as he sang... More
