“The Best Ice Cream”

Holsten's Brookdale Confectionary
Ranked #2 of 2 Dessert in Bloomfield
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Don't bother with the other ice cream shops in the area. This is the authentic real deal All homemade ice cream and toppings, and there is also a candy counter with homemade items. The butter pecan is the best - a little salty with the sweet, accompany that with the hot fudge - delicious!

Ice Cream parlor with great classic ice cream flavors. Basic menu for food items- great when you just feel like having a light bite to eat. But the draw here is definitely the ice cream, the candy and the nostalgia.

I have been going to Holsten's for many years. They make their own ice cream and fountain favorites. The hamburgers and all of the dishes are fresh and delicious. Bring the kids and the entire family. I assure you that you will not be disappointed!

When the historic Brummer's in Jersey City closed decades ago, there was a huge void in the lives of folks from the area who grew up with that old fashioned ice cream parlor experience. While much smaller and relatively more "modern," Holsten's recreates some of that memorable experience with cases of homemade candy and fresh, hand-packed ice cream. The food is soda shoppe food, simple but tasty. If you're in the area and looking for great ice cream in a nostalgic atmosphere, definitely try Holsten's!

Food was very good and ice cream flavors were unique and yummy. Seating and atmosphere was cozy and the storefront filled with candies was tempting and nearby.
