Delicious ice-cream and desserts! The apple crisp was delicious and the strawberry rhubarb pie had the perfect tartness.

Hi jjahnols, Glad you are digging the baked goods. True story: I went to visit my son at school last weekend and all he wanted me to bring was a (pan of) apple crisp. No ice cream...just the apple crisp! Cheers, Bruce

I have always loved Purity'so ice cream and the fact you get it throughout the year, but in the past two years they have added lunch during the week and breakfast on the weekends. I rarely get to enjoy lunch at Purity, but I love...More

Hi pamelalou, Glad you are a long-time fan! Breakfast on the weekends is pretty fine, but serious, you need to address whatever is keeping you from getting to lunch more often ;) Thanks for the nice review! Bruce

Hi jennie8614! Thanks for the kind words. Ah....Bittersweet. A true Purity original. Those impossibly thin slivers of bittersweet chocolate happen when the stream of melted chocolate hits the cold stream of ice cream as it heads into the freezing process. The chocolate then "shatters" and...More

Purity has been famous for their ice cream for generations but now their offering of breakfast/brunch on the weekends is great. My wife is vegan but I'm not, fabulous choices for us both.

Thanks for visiting. Providing fun and tasty breakfast choices for many diets was important for us, being omnivores! Please come again. Bruce

We went by and saw the long lines so thought we would give it a try. YUM! I had the Bulldog crunch and it was excellent! Would definitely go back.

A great place for fun ice cream flavors. Weekend brunches are also a treat. A must-visit if you're in Ithaca. Fair prices for what you get- ice cream servings are huge!
