Great ice cream at a great price

Once a year, we visit Penn State and our first stop is the creamery. There is always a line but it moves quickly. There is an interesting variety of flavors. Not all are available at all times. I was hoping for Tin Roof Sundae, but since it wasn't available, I went with cookie dough. My DD had... read more

The Penn State University Berkey Creamery is an absolute must if you are in the area! The ice cream is excellent with a large variety of flavors. My favorite it the WPSU Coffee Break which is coffee ice cream with chocolate chips. The staff is always pleasant and fun. The eating areas are clean, especially for the amount of traffic... More

The Berkey creamery at Penn State is a must if you are in the area. I was just there with my son, who just graduated from the Food Science department, and he showed me around the campus, this with a nice bowl of butter pecan ice cream from the creamery! It was a delicious way to see the campus! If... More

The Creamery is located on the Penn State campus at University Park. The ice cream is the best hard serve I've ever had. They sell half gallons that are truly half gallons not the smaller sizes now sold in supermarkets. They will pack it with dry ice for travel. The lines will be long during football games but well worth... More

Great ice cream. I wish they let you get 2 flavors in 1 order. Clean and attractive store. Always a line on family weekends

I heard about the creamery & was in town for business & had to try it. WOW, it was soooo creamy & rich. I LOVE ice cream but this place has the best. If you are in the area, you MUST stop & get some, you will definitely agree they have the BEST ice cream. I also noticed they have... More

If you want ice cream in State College this is THE place to go. They give you about a half gallon as a small dish and it is less than 5$. Say what? Yup. Great place for dessert.

I went hear before a late show at the Jordan center about a half a mile away its a straight shot from there so no issues in getting here to the creamery. Enjoy it as long as you don't mind the wait. Easy to taste the high butter fat content in the butter pecan. Its good stuff but a bit... More

Many varieties of hand dipped ice cream and milkshakes and indoor/outdoor seating. They have a small store area where you can purchase half gallons and some other items
