Ashley’s Ice Cream
280 York St, New Haven, CT

Ashley’s has been serving amazing ice cream or as they put it “yummy deliciousness” to Connecticut since 1973. It’s an institution in downtown New Haven that really brings you back. Not back to the soda fountains of the 1950’s, but back to quality ice cream parlors of the ’80’s and ’90’s. Back before the Yolatos and Stinkberry’s, when you could get great real ice cream and just a few quality toppings. Thanks to our heroes, Jane and Michael Stern of Roadfood, we landed on Ashley’s on a recent New Haven roadtrip. We chose their awesome Coffee Oreo ice cream, with fresh brewed coffee and the right amount of Oreos, topped with just hot fudge and real whipped cream. It was classic and delicious, and I could go for one right now…
