The ice cream is the best you've ever had and the cheeses,especially the smoked ones are in a class by themselves. A must for visitors to take a bunch of cheese home. Locals in the know get all their dairy here.

I love the Msu dairy store for my on the go shake. Only get the shakes since I am usually busy and get the two scoops of chocolate with a scoop of either mint or double fudge fake. I don't care for cheese, but my family loves cheese and thinks Msu had pretty good cheese. When it's lunch time I... More

This place is classic old school MSU. Great ice cream that's made in house with big ten themed add ins. It's fabulous place to take old and young alike. It's a must do for anyone visiting the capitol area of Michigan.

The ice cream is wonderful. Totally worth the wait in line. (Everyone knows this is the place to go.) Also, check out the viewing room upstairs. You can see the ice cream being made.

Really good ice cream. Have tried several flavors and love them all. They also sell cheese made at the college which is also very good.

How can you be on campus and not stop by the MSU Dairy store. This was my first visit to the shop in the Union. It was small but had a great selection of uniquely named ice creams. I bought cheese curds. I know. Why cheese curds? Well, I like them and they bring back good memories. Next time ice... More

Milk from campus cows, ice cream made on campus. My favorite is Gopher Smore but I also love Honors Coffee Toffee and the Lemon Custard which is divine on a hot summer's day. Whether at the Union or in Anthony Hall, MSU Dairy Store ice cream is fabulous and not to be missed on a visit to campus. The grilled... More

Delicious ice cream and favorite cheese. My favorite is Dagano Cheese and the cheese curds. Located on Farm Lane, parking in front and in the back. If you are biking it is a perfect destination and close to beautiful gardens.
