Ample Hills Creamery
Brooklyn, NY 11238
Village Voice's Description
New ice cream shops are opening all of the time, especially ones that focus on local ingredients and ecologically conscious (hormone-free milk, cage-free chicken eggs) recipes, but Prospect Height’s Ample Hills Creamery sets itself apart with its always-changing, always-great flavors. The menu is always in flux, but a few choice items are the Beer Muncheez, which is a sweet cream ice cream with beer and cheddar cheese bites, and Cookie Au Lait, which pairs New York’s own Irving Farm espresso with sandwich cookies in a coffee-flavored ice cream. All the flavors – usually around 24 at a time – are available as sundaes, milkshakes, and floats, and custom ice cream cakes are available through online, phone, or in-store order. What’s more, the employees at the small shop are usually more than happy to offer samples of all the flavors, and customers are welcome to have as many flavors as they can fit into whatever type of cone or cup they choose. --Shane Barnes

They have an awesome Ice Cream Lab where you can literally watch the magic happen. They even have a window down low for the little ones to get a peek.
Don't miss the Salted Crack Caramel, an intense and just salty enough butter caramel ice cream that gets even better with "crack cookies," buttery chocolate-covered Saltines.
