Line is huge on a hot summer evening. Great place for soft ice cream and milk shakes. If ordering a chocolate shake, be sure to ask for chocalate syrup.

I think we like to stay at the hotel behind here just so I can justify stopping in for ice cream. Always enjoy visiting and getting a different sundae or shake. Cheryl always makes me smile. The rest of the staff is usually smiling and helpful picking out something new.

This place has become a routine stop on our drive through Albany. Not because the ice cream is fantastic, but the prices are very good and experience of elaborate creations joyful. Hard to find such type of place in NYC - so my kids enjoy it. Plus it is always packed.

i stopped by this place because it was consistently packed during a recent trip to Albany. The ice cream was good, but it wasn't the best that I've ever had. The prices and customer service make it worth your while. Try it and see.

Okay here is the scoop, imagine frozen yogurt with the texture of whipped cream. That is what the vanilla ice cream taste like. A mixture of light,firm, creamy fluffy ice cream. On the west coast some call it "custard". Yes, there is a variety of ice creams out there and this is just another wonderful delight. I would have to... More

Creamy, smooth ice cream. So many sizes and toppings to choose from. There is always a line in the summer and it's worth it I don't know how they get it so smooth but it's just the best ice cream ever!!!

When looking for ice cream places in the Albany area, Kurver Kreme had the best reviews, so we had to stop in. It's located on Central, right down the street from Colonie Center and there's plenty of parking here. They have a variety of soft and hard ice cream and we got a couple of soft serve cones. The ice... More
