All the flavors are great. Fall is the best because they have Pumpkin. You can eat inside or outside. Staff members are always very cheerful....

It doesn't matter when we go out or who with, time after time this ice cream is the best. In warmer weather you can sit outside and enjoy.

Anytime you go there, they are usually busy, but you move pretty quickly. Every bite is a taste of pleasure my son says. It's a must try if you in the area.

Pistachio and Butter Brickle are the BEST I've ever had. If you haven't visited, take the drive to Hamden and check it out. Reasonable prices and huge portions. Get the kiddie sundae and it will be plenty!

This shop has some of the best ice cream anywhere. The little gazebo in the back is a great place to sit, chat and enjoy the flavors. I highly recommend it

Wentworth has the best ice cream in town. August is when you can get fresh peach and this year they also had peach raspberry!!

Creamy ice cream that taste fresh! A great assortment of flavors; my favorite being the butter pecan, but I haven't tried one I didn't like. It's a local favorite!!

Love the ice cream, and it shows with the many loyal patrons that continually return. They have an outdoor and indoor seating area that's perfect for those summer nights
