Great flavors...anything you can imagine. If you are in town for Dreams Park it is right up the street on the way back to Cooperstown. Service is quick and it is often busy. A great refresher on a summer day!

The people who work here must hear the same thing, over and over: So many choices! Once you get over the long list of possible 'customized' concoctions, just relax and enjoy. The mixing machine produces an ice cream of a lovely consistency. We had small sundaes, and enjoyed them thoroughly.

Went here based on Tripadvisor reviews was not disappointed. They blend your toppings right into the ice cream a great taste sensation. You need to try this if you like ice cream.

Thanks to all the reviews on trip advisor, I knew I had to try this place and the ice cream was AMAZING. Of course I had to try mixing flavors and was not disappointed. I recommend this place highly to all ice cream lovers visiting Cooperstown.

It's not a bad place. I just wouldn't say it's a "must stop" kind of a place when you go to Cooperstown. It's just your average side of the road ice cream stop. Their "custom" ice cream is basically reminiscent of a Dairy Queen blizzard (chocolate or vanilla ice cream blended with your choice of add in which include but... More

At The Penguin you can have ice cream your way! Order your custom treats from their menu or make up your own. It’s sort of like a blizzard with almost unlimited options. We both got small cups but wished we had ordered the junior size because it was very filling and a very generous portion. You can, however, never have... More

We stopped here during our Dreams Park week. I saw the good reviews on TA and we always eat ice cream on vacation. It's located between Dreams Park and the town of Cooperstown. You go to the counter and choose from hard or soft serve ice cream. Then you choose from different flavors to add to the ice cream. You... More
