Stars wars fans may know this place for the Star Wars themed ice team pints they created. Ice cream is filled with tastes and pieces of whoknows what based on flavor making it extra yummy. If you love ice cream with pieces of chips, cookies, candy etc. you will like this place. Like a McDonalds blizzard but even better. Not... More

We went for a birthday party and the staff was very engaging and friendly. The place has an open Terrence and it's beautiful. And the ice cream was amazing!

The best ice cream you'll ever have! Long line but it moves quickly. Worth the wait. Staff is very friendly. If you're unsure about a flavor you're able to sample it

Ample Hills is the best ice cream in Brooklyn and probably the whole of NYC. The variety of flavors is broad enough that you can find the old faithful classics but still have some newer, more adventurous combinations. The consistency of ice cream is perfect as it's delightfully creamy. They are most known for the Salted Caramel but my favorite... More

We love , love, love this Ice Cream shop. Even when there is a line it doesn't take long to get served. Great flavors and you are allowed to taste before deciding. We came to love it even more when they made a Gilmore Girls flavor!! A must visit :)

I live near the original Ample Hills location and am sometimes put off by the crowds gathered there on the weekends. But the popularity is well deserved. Ample Hills produces original and more importantly, delicious!, ice cream flavors. Other Brooklyn ice creameries have flavors that are a bit to twee for me. Not Ample Hills! My favorites are Nonna D's... More

The long lines, sometimes looping around on the sidewalk, tell the story of neighborhood fans and others. The ice cream is wonderfully creamy, and there are a large variety of flavors (with changes common, new options and old ones returning). To my mind, some of them are "concoctions" that appeal to many but I prefer fruit and other true flavors... More

This is a fantastic place for ice cream. A bit pricey and the line was around the block on a Saturday evening. Delicious, cool flavors. A decadent treat if you have the time.

"Brooklyn of ample hills was mine, I too walk'd the streets of Manhattan island..." When I was a kid I used to imagine Brooklyn as the rural idyll of days gone by...Step into this cute shop and the leap isn't a stretch. Friendly staff who love what they do and a range of delicious flavours freshly made for old and... More
