Penn State Creamery

Great place to stop for ice cream or milkshakes. There is also a large take out section, with a large variety of ice cream, cheese, milk and yogurt. All very yummy.

The ice cream was alright. Didn't live up to the hype from others. Usually to busy for me. I wont stand in the long lines.

Best ice cream around. This is where Ben and Jerry learned to make their ice cream. Other items available as well. Parking is time limited and not clear if permitted in the nearby garage.

the Berkey Creamery has been in existence for over 50 years. It is one of the best places in town to get ice cream and it is a must when visiting PSU. Service is pretty quick even when the lines are long.

Service is good and quick, which is perfect for a visit with children. We go during off school schedule - better service.

OK. I love ice cream, but it was a cold winter's evening when I stopped there for ice cream with our exchange student, after the Penn State ice hockey game. The setup was pretty efficient, but the place was so packed that we had to stand. No worries. Purchased a butter pecan ice cream, and boy was the portion large... More

Penn State ice cream is one of the best in the US. Made from milk from PSU's own dairy cows. Located on campus, great place to bring kids and family.

One problem is it is closed for renovations? It was just renovated and moved not many years ago! Best ice cream ever. A must visit for out of towers and a daily ritual for Penn Staters. I have been loving it since I came to school in the early 80's.. Here is a great secret on a busy football weekend.... More

The handmade ice cream here is absolutely delicious. There are a tremendous selection of flavors that are updated often. They also sell to-go bags with dry ice so that we can bring half gallons home. We make it a point to go here every time we visit our son at Penn State.

Great new location with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Free 1/2 hr of parking in the lot next door. Excellent ice cream and dairy products, all made at Penn State. It gets vert crowded though, especially on football weekends.
