“Best ice cream we've had in years”

This became a daily stop for my family during 5 days in Ithaca. Fresh great ice cream (and other food available as well). Take the time to go upstairs and tour the exhibits - particularly if the dairy is in operation. You will learn why their product is sooo good.

The dairy bar has a variety of ice creams. If you don't see the flavor you want in the cabinet, but it's listed on the available flavors, don't despair. They will go in the back and get you what you want. Oh, and if you need something to eat before your ice cream, they have hot dogs and a few other items. Note that this is not close to the visitors' center. If you have old or little ones, you may want to drive down to the dairy bar.

The best ice cream made right where they teach and specialize in agriculture and food science. Delicious flavors and beautiful campus spots to see and enjoy the treat! We had no idea they produced so many dairy products.

If ever on campus you must try! I am an ice lover- this might have been the best I have ever tasted. I had Bavarian custard with fudge & raspberry. So incredibly creamy. If lactose intolerant & can manage w otc pills , you will need a few extra. Also tried the ham & cheese sandwich- very yummy. Little pricy but well worth it.

Very good, dense ice cream. My favorite was the Triple Chocolate Play. It's very dense, so I preferred it once it melted a bit. The other flavors were ok. Nice if you're in the area, but not a necessary trip if it's out of the way.
