We first wandered into SoCo a couple of summers ago on a blistering day, trying to cool down a bit while waiting for the start time of the BEMF opera at the Mahaiwe, and were knocked out by the excellence of the ice cream. So, back yesterday on a road trip — temperate temperatures and no opera, but the ice... More

Very good ice cream. Nice selection of flavors and other items. I had the "dirty chocolate" ice cream in a sugar cone....delightful!

I love ice cream, but didn't want to finish mine! I look forward to trying different homemade ice cream when away from home, but I found mine nearly flavorless and not-so-creamy-unappetizing, even. Peanut butter and chocolate are two flavors that should stand out, yet I almost thought I was eating vanillla. Disappointing and not worth the calories.

The staff is engaged and cheerful. Even with a press of after theater folks they moved efficiently and took great care of everyone. They offered samples and were great. High quality product from a wonderful staff.

The best espresso this side of the Atlantic. Just that the service is quite slow. We also had a decent taste of gelato.

SoCo Dairy in Great Barrington is a company store. They make an excellent line of ice cream and gelato, which is sold at numerous outlets throughout Western Massachusetts. We tried a couple of ice cream flavors and they were truly excellent. Prices are average and there are multiple sizes to choose from. The store is in downtown Great Barrington, so... More

Delicious. Perfect way to end a meal in town or for an afternoon snack. Really good rich ice-cream. Always a teat.

The ice cream here is always consistent and good with a nice variety of flavors to choose from; don't think I'd say it is the best ice cream I've ever had but it is high quality and tasty. My daughter loves their milkshakes. They usually have about 6 flavors of gelato as well; which is my preference. You can purchase... More
