“Overrated Ice Cream Spot”

Ashley's Ice Cream Cafe
Ranked #4 of 15 Dessert in New Haven
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 July 2017

Sign says: Voted best ice cream in the state. Ha! By whom? It's a tiny joint in downtown New Haven, limited seating. Ice cream is standard stuff, found anywhere. Unattractive interior, cheap seats and tables. 12 people capacity at most. Service without a smile. May have been better years ago, but average at best. Don't go out of your way.

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.

We visited Ashley's with a few friends - everyone loved the ice creams or shakes that they ordered. A few days later we also got the Oreo ice creak cake from Ashley's and that was really delicious too!!

There are many different types of ice cream (soft, hard, sugar free, interesting flavors) offered at this quaint shop on Main Street and all the children's art work on the walls is fun to look at.

My granddaughter and I each had a child's cup of ice cream with sprinkles. Delicious, for sure but pricey at almost $9.00 total.

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
