We receive orders from many family members and former alums to bring back Creamery ice cream when we visit our daughter. There is no better ice cream to be bought. The all time favorite in our household is Alumni Swirl, although Coffee Break and Peachy Paterno are close 2nd and 3rds. Just let them know how far away you're travelling,... More

Anytime I come to State College I make it a point to visit the Creamery...at least twice. It is absolutely delicious and well worth the wait in the long lines. Be adventurous and try their assortment of flavors.

We got milkshakes and a bowl for the three of us. Service was quick once the servers got the order - which took a while. Ice cream was good. The prices were good.

You can never leave Penn State without stopping to try the ice cream. It is so good!!! yes very fattening as well. I have enjoyed just about every flavor I have ever had here. If you are unsure, ask for a sample. The cones are huge that they make. Take along a cooler so you can take some home for... More

Excellent ice cream, so rich and creamy. I asked for a single and it was 4 scoops! I had Berkey Brickle and it was delicious. I love peanut brittle and this ice cream was loaded with crunchy bits throughout the ultra creamy vanilla ice cream. My husband had German chocolate and it too was delicious with delicious coconut swirled throughout... More

Not only does The Creamery have some of the best ice cream in the world, but has great dairy products like their milk and cheese. It's a must for visitors and dangerous on your meal points as students

It's not really a restaurant as I imagine one to be but can't be near Penn State without a pilgrimage to the Creamery. I was up for a meeting in Old main and swung by for Peachy Paterno. Saw they had pumpkin ice cream. Since I am rarely there when they have pumpkin, I immediately got a 1/2 gallon. Now... More

Best ice cream in Central Pennsylvania. Be sure and try a Peachy Paterno cone. Cones and dishes only come in one size, which is huge and tasty. A must stop when you visit State College.
