Ample Hills Creamery

Top choice ice cream in Brooklyn: Park Slope, Gowanus & Sunset Park

Ice-cream lovers: we found the mother ship. All of Ample Hills' magnificently creative flavors – snap mallow pop (a deconstructed Rice Krispies treat), Mexican hot chocolate, salted crack caramel, 'ooey gooey' butter cake – are whipped up right here in the creamery's Gowanus factory. Grab a cone and watch the goods being made through the kitchen's picture window.

This location also offers regular two-hour classes ($95) where you'll learn how to make your own frozen delights – from scratch, in an old-fashioned hand-cranked ice-cream machine.
