This place is great, the ice cream was so tasty. My wife had the lobster bisque and said it was the best she's had. Friendly and very comfortable. We will be back again.

We stopped here because the parking lot was always full. We had breakfast and a light dinner and ice cream twice. The soups are homemade and delicious. We had the lobster crab bisque and a butternut squash soup. The hamburgers we had were hand made patties and the beef was very fresh. And to top it all off the ice... More

My husband and I were in the area on Sat, and stopped in for breakfast. The parking lot was full...had to cruise around a bit for a spot. The place is cute, decorated with old ice cream signs and scoops. We were seated quickly. Our waitress was not all that friendly, but then we found out she was not feeling... More

The menu is a sandwich menu. They also have homemade soups. Sandwiches are good, but nothing really special. I think most people go here for the ice cream and milkshakes.

I have been coming here for years for my milkshake fix, (no wonder I cant shed this last 10lbs, LOL) They do have other food but honestly who cares when they are serving the best milkshakes on the planet, and yes, its in the negatives at times and I am still heading here for my milkshake. ;-)

Great place for lunch - very reasonable priced soup and sandwiches and very well prepared with fresh ingredients. Very attentive service as well. Try the home made ice cream. Nice country atmosphere and great for families.

By far one of my favorite places to to stop in and grab a sandwich. The Reuben and the Ham and Cheese pretzel sandwiches are to drive 20 miles for:) Breakfast is always great and very wallet friendly, as is everything else here at Udder Choice. Family owned and run and it shows. Is a must stop place if visiting... More

Udder Choice has been around Ephrata for a long time, which is unusual around here where new places come and go often. It is owned by a local family who all participate in the business. The decor is adorable. It looks like a cute barn inside with rafters decorated for the season. There is a huge case of antique ice... More

We love going to the Udder Choice when we just want a quick dinner of soup and sandwich. They always have between 8-10 different soups to choose from. They have a large variety of sandwiches to choose from also. The best soup on their menu is the Chicken Corn Chowder. It is the best soup ever. I always get a... More

While this is an ice cream place, it's also a great place to go for soup and sandwiches. The owner always has a large selection of homemade soups on a daily basis. Others in my family like sandwiches on a pretzel roll. Also very reasonably priced. Always leave satisfied and often don't have room for ice cream!
