Ashley's Ice Cream Cafe
Ranked #5 of 16 Dessert in New Haven
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 November 2017 via mobile

This ice cream shop has been voted #1 in New Haven for the last 2 decades, which is impressive! The ice cream was yummy with original flavors in addition to old standbys. The staff was incredibly friendly.

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, butter crunch, vanilla, pistachio and strawberry were among the flavors that we ordered. Some of us had toppings like almonds, Oreo cookies and sprinkles. Even though it might not be the best ice cream we've tasted, it was pretty good.

Upon seeing two competing ice cream shops within blocks of one another I was determined to select a clear winner. Sorry Ashely, it wasn't you. Your ice cream was flat and seemed to have an overabundance of air mixed in with the ice cream. Almost like a DQ soft serve.
Then I walked down the street.........

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.
