“Homemade ice cream that's almost as rich as gelato, pleasant outdoor seating”

Ava's Home Made Ice Cream
Ranked #2 of 2 Dessert in Basking Ridge
Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 September 2016

Really enjoyed this seasonal ice-cream place today, open April through October. The flavors and textures are outstanding. I had the peanut butter and triple chocolate, middle sized cup, and my friend had the coffee and triple chocolate. Beforehand, sampled some other flavors and found true happiness in what we had. Not an everyday treat, and a bit pricey, but really rewarding ice cream the way it should be. It was cold but slightly soft in consistency. Hard to imagine adding toppings, if you do it's almost as if you would compete with the richness and strength of the flavors. If the weather is good, outside there are nice shaded tables and benches, or you can go and stroll around the lovely town center.

Took my 4 3/4 year old grandson who had the blue cookie dough ice cream with chocolate sprinkles in a cup with a sugar cone stuck on top. He loved and said it was "the best everywhere". I tried the cherry vanilla and thought the ice cream was smooth, rich and flavorful. The young lady waiting on us was friendly and considerate.

This place is not worth the price. Uninspiring flavors and ice cream that should be creamy was icy. Better options available

We tried 3 different flavors, and all were tasty and rich. Ice cream was creamy and on the soft side. They offer a small outdoor seating area. Quaint small local store right off the main ave in basking ridge.
