Our first visit to the dairy store after living in Lincoln for years. It did not disappoint. A good mix of traditional and unique flavors. The store is staffed by college students who greeted us as we entered and offered samples of any and all flavors. We enjoyed generous servings of banana chocolate chip, caramel cashew, and sweet corn. Visitor... More

The dairy store has great ice cream! I have also bought cheese which is good and is seasonally available in gift boxes. The seating area is small and can get crowded, same with the parking area. I was disappointed when mint chip was not available but the raspberry chocolate chip was a very good substitute.

Well, the ice cream was good, rich and creamy, but a little lacking in flavor. It's not mediocre, not by a long shot, and prices are reasonable, $3 for a large waffle cone, but a top attraction? Not sure about that. Nice touch that the cross street is Dairy Store Way.

Every time we're in town, we UST make a run for the Dairy Store. The ice cream is always so great, and the kids working there are so polite. The parking is not the best, but if you don't mind a short walk, there are some spots to be found

I liked the ice cream but the young adults working acted like they really did not want to serve us, not even a welcome hello when we came in. We were the only people there. Need to work on them smiles and customer service

All the ice cream is amazing. You can take your treats that they have on sale during happy hour and walk across the flower garden outside.

This is one of my favorite spots! Any time we have out of town company, we run over for ice cream and to check out the local cheeses, etc. in the case. Just a fun place to experience new ice cream flavors and enjoy the work of our UNL students!

I've had zucchini and sweet corn ice creams here. Where else can you get that? Plus you're helping students and encouraging classes to try new things. And then on nice days, take a stroll with your treat around East Campus' gorgeous grounds. Don't ever go to Dairy Queen when you can try this place!

We stopped on a Thursday evening and really enjoyed our ice cream. We each tried the butter brickle and it was great.

The UNL Dairy Store offers some good homemade ice cream. It is located off of Holdrege St on East Campus close to the Law School. The hard ice cream is the homemade stuff with several different flavors. I had the strawberry cheesecake and the peanut butter chocolate chip. The soft serve is not homemade so be careful if you order... More
