Last had their chocolate pudding ice cream 30 years ago in their Harvard Square location. The taste and texture was incredible then and now. The consistency is between pudding and ice cream. While taking my daughter for college tours, had the chance to stop at a Herrel's again. It was as good as I remembered. This place is not to... More

Like ice cream? Try this rich, homemade, creamy mixture of various flavors. Pricey but worth a try. They also have specialty desserts.

This cute place will take you back in time to when Ice Cream always tasted good and fresh. The flavors are unique and delicious. I had banana ice cream that did not taste artificial! My friends also enjoyed their ice cream and sorbet. Worth the stop/trip.

Going to Herrell's for ice cream is a must during any visit to western Massachusetts. The ice cream is locally crafted with an incredible rotating assortment of delicious, unique premium flavors including the iconic burnt sugar 'n butter. Simply fantastic!

Harrell's is THE place for,ice cream around here. Summer evenings have long lines and people all over the hillside across the street as they finish their treats. I haven't tried everything, but everything I've had has been outstanding. They also have excellent sugar-free ice cream, as well as sorbets, etc. if you're in Northampton, don't miss it!

I've been here many many times with the family. We always love it! Their fudge sauce has won many awards. Tons of flavours and add in options. A great treat for ice cream lovers of any age. The lineup moves super fast so get in there!

I visited Herrell's because it was rated #1 in Northampton. Sorry, not impressed. Crowded at 10 p.m. (which is a good thing, I guess, but...). I've eaten at a LOT of shop-made ice cream places, and this is just average except for the mixin's, which I'm not into. Good but not worth a special trip.

As far as ice cream goes, Steve Herrell is King of the Cone! An ice cream icon in NoHo, MA. At least 20 flavors, combinations and you wouldn't think of! And, if that's not enough, there are "smoosh ins;" pieces of candy and fruit that are mixed into the ice cream, making your ice cream your own, customized treat! Limited... More
