Ample Hills Creamery5
Why locals love it
Ample Hills is hands-down the best and most creative creamery this side of the East River. Their flavors rotate daily, and include deliciously non-traditional concoctions such as The Munchies - which includes bits of pretzels, potato chips, and M&Ms. Plus, at Ample Hills Creamery all ice cream is made from scratch, from start to finish.
Why you should visit it
Ample Hills Creamery is the perfect spot to enjoy something made by locals for locals. The creamery's name derives from the poem 'Crossing Brooklyn Ferry' by Walt Whitman. Local owners Brian & Jackie are die-hard Brooklyners and created Ample Hills Creamery as a community gathering spot for ice-cream lovers and friends.
