Ashley's ice cream has been in Hamden for many years. Its definitely top notch. There are many flavors and toppings to choose from. They make the ice cream fresh, if you go and try it you'll be going again!

Ashley's ice cream is not great by any stretch of the imagination. The ice cream flavours are pretty bland and uninteresting despite the enticing names and descriptions. To top it off, my waffle cone was stale. I would never waste my money here again. How, how, how did this place make Connecticut's best? My family and I absolutely love ice... More

Ashley makes a super good ice cream cake that the entire family enjoys. Order ahead so you get the flavors you want in the cake.

Ashley's is a CT icon. This is what ice cream is supposed to taste like. Good flavors, big portions, and a good price. It's a classic ice cream shop. It's a great place to take the kids but also a fun stop with friends.

on 29th June I enjoyed the ice cream and smoothies with my family in this cafe in Hamden. The quality was very good. The ice cream and smoothies were very tasty and I would like to visit the cafe again.

Love the flavor options and the toppings. The staff seems like it's mostly students and they're friendly. It is open late for that night time snack during the summer, but there are not enough places to sit.

Ashley's makes their own ice cream - it's terrific. They offer sundaes, and they make their cones and these cone-like sundae holders. Oh - I love this place! It's very well known far and wide...and they have two other venues that I know of in Guilford and New Haven. All the same - all superb!
