There is a nice variety of ice cream flavors to choose from. We always enjoy our ice cream here and the atmosphere is fun as well.

This ice cream shop is in a small location that has maybe a dozen chairs. The staff seems to be composed of Yale students. The young lady that served us was nice and patiently took our order. We were a party of four. Chocolate chip,...More

This is a favorite stop of our daughters. Not only did they serve our human folks but gave a small tasting to our doggie as well. The flavors were plentiful and the servings were big. Loved it.

I frequent Ashley's after my Wednesday bike rides through spring and summer and fall. Staff are friendly. Down side - Not much space to eat inside

Their coffee Oreo ice cream is the best. Ever. You can't go wrong with any of their flavors though. Fresh, wholesome and amazing.

A Yale friend told me we had to do Ashley's while we were in New Haven, so we took him up on it. Good ice cream, slightly outside the standard flavors of every other ice cream shop anywhere, which was good. The ice cream itself...More
