“Delicious, locally-made ice cream”

Ashley's Ice Cream Cafe
Ranked #6 of 15 Dessert in New Haven
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 21, 2010

One of my favorite ice cream places, this is located downtown near the Yale campus. They have several staple flavors but also several unique ones that rotate. They are very generous with free samples. The ice cream is very creamy, and I've never left disappointed. There isn't a lot of seating inside, so on a warm night it's best to grab your ice cream and go for a walk.

We stopped here for dessert after a deliicous pizza lunch in a neighborhood restaurant just a few steps away from this place. Judging from the decor and the notices hung on the wall and windows, it obviously is a favorite spot of the Yale students and local residents. Initially, I was a bit put off by the two very young servers behind the counter who were paying more attention to their own conversation than to my wife & I who were obviously standing at the counter for service. However, this feeling was immediately displaced once we got to sample some of their tasty homemade types of ice cream - which had smooth, creamy textures and were bursting with flavors! We finally settled on two waffle cones - nicely filled! - which we took with us on the rest of our walk. The high quality and taste of this ice cream makes a stop there worth the extra calories - treat yourself!!

Creative flavors but the ice cream is gritty.
