When all the kids are screaming for ice cream, take them to Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn, where they can try wacky flavors like The Munchies (with pretzels, potato chips, Ritz crackers and mini M&Ms). All of the ice cream on offer (and many of the mix-ins) are made at Ample Hills’ Brooklyn shops using the freshest possible ingredients. As if the promise of a sweet treat isn’t enough, Ample Hills also features a play space stocked with books and a window that offers a glimpse into the production room, so tots can see how their ice cream gets made. Planning a birthday party or other celebration? Ample Hills cakes ($35–$58) combine two delectable ice cream flavors heaped on a brownie base and topped with whipped cream and your choice of hot fudge or caramel.
