We stopped into SOCO Creamery for a scoop while touring around Great Barrington on vacation. The guy behind the counter was so nice and offered us samples of multiple flavors. I had the salted caramel ice cream on a sugar cone (super delicious!) and my boyfriend got the cappuccino french ice cream (also delicious). It was definitely worth the stop!

I visited a few years ago but just found this on Tripadvisor. Super cute place, but a bit more pricey than a typical ice cream joint. I would go back- plenty to pick from! Just a local, touristy thing

Perfect place to remember what "local" food is all about. Small retail store - like in the "good" old days (and everything about this shop is "good" - except when you visit your doctor and then you will have been "bad" for enjoying yourself so much). Support what "local" is all about - and you will leave smiling. Yum, yum... More

Most of our family feels that this is about as good as it gets for Ice Cream. There is a huge variety of flavors, their ice cream is incredibly smooth and creamy-perfect for a warm summer night.

This is a great little stop if you're looking for an ice cream treat. They use all local ingredients in their product and you can really taste the difference. It can be a really, really busy place on a hot summer night, but it is worth the wait. The service is fast, but the checking out is a little cumbersome.... More

It was like $8 for a vanilla milk shake. It wasn't even that big. My husband and children insisted we get ice-cream here and I was not a happy camper. I'm still flabbergasted by the price, but that was one of the best damn milkshakes I've ever had. The place is very strangely decorated with peeling purple paint and old... More

With flavors like burnt sugar, goat cheese/fig, espresso/cookie and coconut lemongrass you know you've found a great little shop offering up handmade ice creams. Open late and quick to give samples, we found ourselves returning almost nightly for a sweet treat. True, the prices are high but it is Railroad Street in Great Barrington...what else can you expect?

There are some fun flavors to try here (ginger, mission fig, etc...) and the ice cream is good. However, the pricing is a bit out of hand for just regular old ice cream. $4 for a small cone and $9.50 for a small sundae is a bit outrageous even in 2014. Also, some of our party wanted frozen yogurt and... More
