When you are in Harrisonburg or passing through on your way anywhere nearby, this is a must stop for frozen custard! Both locations! Local owned and operated. Fresh ingredients. Always yummy!

First, should be said up front. REAL ice cream is not soft serve. Real ice cream is hard, hand scooped ice cream and I've been to a variety of shops. With that said, I have been to Kline's many times over the last several years....More

Thank you for your feedback regarding your visit. Just to clarify, we do not offer soft serve products. Our ice cream is made fresh daily with our special 10% mix, made in a custard machine and is hand scooped. The process of making ice cream...More

We walked to this place after visiting a local diner. The ice cream was fairly food. The flavors are limited for anything but shakes. I'd recommend it, because it's fresh.

What makes Kline's ice cream so smooth and creamy with an unbelievably delicious taste? It's all in the production method and ingredients. We take the quality of our ice cream very seriously. High quality ingredients and an old fashion ice cream making technique has made Kline's an institution since 1943. Unlike the more popular and profitable soft serve and batch methods of producing ice cream, Kline's employs an almost obsolete process of continuous freeze production. Other methods can yield several times more ice cream because of the air being pumped in during the whipping process. The continuous freeze method used by Kline's, however, does not add extra air to the product. It is a very slow and labor intensive process. Each location makes their own fresh ice cream each morning for the day's sales.
