“mulder's ice cream spot”

From the beginning Ashley’s goal has been to make the best ice cream possible, and we continue to do that today over 30 years later!  We never use any artificial colors or flavors. All natural, fresh ingredients lead to naturally the best ice cream! Of course we don’t stop there, whipped cream is whipped fresh in the store everyday, along with fresh baked waffle cones and our famous Bittersweet hot fudge made with all the highest quality chocolates.  Ashley’s Ice Cream was founded in 1979. Being avid frisbee players, we became enamored with Ashley Whippet- the famous frisbee catching dog. So our name was born, and our walls have been decorated with hundreds of frisbees we’ve collected ever since. Ashley’s Ice Cream originated in New Haven in 1979 on College Street, just steps away from the dormitories of Yale University. It didn’t take long for the crowds, accolades, and awards to start filling the store; so much so that a second Ashley’s opened on the other side of campus on York Street, where we still are today! We’ve even been lucky enough to serve some famous alumni and students such as several past Presidents, Academy Award nominee Paul Giamatti, and many other actors including James Franco, Jordana Brewster, and David Duchovny. Although New Haven will always be where our roots are, other locations in the area soon followed. Ashley’s has been in nearby Hamden since 1983, and shops in Guilford, Branford, and Madison subsequently followed to bring us to our current 5 locations.

The best (and only) ice cream joint in the area. Ashley's is famous for their espresso cookie, but you'll enjoy just about anything on their menu of creamy-offerings. Reasonably priced (though not a steal) and a comprehensive selection of yummy toppings! Not too much seating area so take it to go and explore the beautiful quad outside Sterling Memorial quad (cross campus).
