I must stop on the way home. I spend most of the summer in Spring Lake or Belmar and always have to stop at Hartman's ice cream. They have the best ice cream. Refreshing after spending the day on the beach.

Hoffman's has the best ice cream in the area and everyone knows so there is usually a crowd but don't let that deter you. The staff is friendly and very efficient so your wait is not long.

It's great ice cream made on site, and in there Point Pleasant store. Be prepared for long lines during the Summer. However, they are prepared and the line goes quickly. They actually closed for a bit, but the public outcry convinced them to reopen. Just...More
