I love Creamery ice cream, but the process of ordering is somewhat inefficient and sometimes confusing the way they set up the order counter. On nice days and weekends when big events are going on, the lines can get long. Also, a tradition is that they won't let you mix two flavors in the same container. Bad news for indecisive... More

If you are a new visitor to campus, this is the best treat in Pennsylvania and possibly the northern hemisphere.* The creamery is easy to find walking and the adjacent garage provides short-term parking (3-gallon tubs are heavy!). There are a number of permanent flavors in addition to seasonal favorites (eggnog! pumpkin pie spice!), and make sure to look around... More

excellent ice cream, perfect assortment of changing flavors, HUGE cones, and very efficient & friendly service. I'd give them 5 stars but you can't get more than one flavor on a cone....unless you're Bill Clinton that is.

A visit to Penn State wouldn't be complete without a trip to the creamery. Long lines move quickly and soon you'll be enjoying a huge portion of their delicious ice cream! We always visit the Creamery when we're at the campus and also bring some home in their reusable bag filled with dry ice.

Sampling some of Penn State's famous ice cream at the Berkey Creamery is an absolute must whether you are a first time visitor or a townie. There are plenty of great flavors to choose from, friendly staff and plenty of space to sit and enjoy your tasty treat. My only complaint would be the fact that ice cream comes in... More

We went out for a nice dessert treat at the creamery. This is only my second time here since I have been coming to PSU football weekends. This traditional place should not be missed when you are at State College. We ordered two ice cream cones and one dish of ice cream. The servings are gigantic. I had Peachy Paterno.... More

This ice cream is the real thing! It's creamy, thick & tasty! The servings are HUGE! I thought the price was reasonable considering the portion size. I was at the creamery on a rainy Saturday afternoon & it was very busy, but the line moved quickly.

We are so lucky to have such a wonderful ice cream shop in State College! We stop here numerous times during the summer to treat ourselves to rich, creamy, locally made ice cream. Coconut Chip is my very favorite flavor but the Death By Chocolate is equally fab.
