Now this tastes like homemade ice cream!

The best ice cream that I ever ate. Fast service and many flavors. Always a line of customers that moves very quickly. Umbrella tables outside to enjoy this wonderful treat.

The ice cream is wonderful -- lots of flavor variety, very rich and creamy. And, the portions are generous. But, don't forget to check out their other dairy products -- I LOVE their cream cheese!!

The new creamery is really nice. The lines flow fast and the selection is great. My wife had the watermelon sherbet and I had the peanut butter ripple which was just as good as I use to have on my way to class.

There's a assortment of food available at this campus setup. One item stood above the rest was the ice cream. There's a good selection and a very popular pit stop for visitors to PSU. The serving size is overly generous, its a meal on its own. Texture, flavour and taste as a whole is of a standard comparable to exclusive... More

After a morning hike on My Nittany we stopped at the creamery for some sweet treats. The line was long but moved quickly. Their straightforward ordering/pricing system keeps things uncomplicated. I ordered a Coconut Chip cone and it was delightful! They did look at me like I was crazy when I said they didn't need to jam another scoop in... More

You have many options of ice cream (usually 10+) and trust me, a regular size bowl or cone ($3.50) is plenty! Be prepared though - they move you thru quickly. You'll appreciate it when the line is long. When you get to the register, you just need to specify which item you want, not the flavor. Once you pay, you'll... More

For the first time ever we tried the Creamery. Very good ice cream. You have to give it a try. We tried the peach and butter pecan. The only disappointing thing is you can't mix flavors. The ice cream is delicious.

Not so easy to find with our Garmin, but be patient and continue around the block. You'll find a parking lot that's not clearly for the Creamery but appears to be so. We had ice cream....terrific portion, selection, and flavor...cone, cup, or both. You'll be glad you stopped.

By so many measures the Berky Creamery should be extraordinary. Freshly made ice cream from local cows and a world renowned university to draw avid ice cream aficionados. For us, last weekend, the Berky Creamery was a forgettable stop. For starters, you can get a cup or cone but can't mix flavors for $3.50. Cold ice cream served in styro-foam... More
