There is a reason that the ice cream cone line sometimes snakes out of the front of the store. This establishment is like your forebears would have patronized if they were lucky. Cones, old fashioned milk shakes, sundaes and all the other dairy treats are available. The glass bottled milk (using deposit bottles) is resold around the state (at inflated... More

They are well known for their home made icecream. Their milk just tastes really fresh. You can carry it out in their old fashioned glass bottles. Both white and choco are delish! My daughters loves their Choco Marshmallow Ice Cream. They always have a line in the summertime!

Truly a staple of State College, I thoroughly enjoy coming here on a regular basis. I bring my dog and my girlfriend and we all have an ice cream outside on the picnic tables. I've been told the regular food here is good and very cheap (chicken sandwich in particular) but I've never ordered anything but ice cream.

What else can I say? I drive from Altoona for the milk. Lines are always out the door. It is well worth the wait for ice cream. Not bad prices either.

A bit of "how it used to be" in a family-run dairy and ice cream place. The service is slow. The actual food choices are cheap, but mostly frozen products made hot somehow. The tables frequently don't get cleaned quickly. And it's super! The ice cream is delicious, and the experience is true Americana.

Our daughter who is a student at PSU turned us on to this place. Since having their ice cream, we haven't been back to the Creamy on campus. The ice cream is delicious and reminds us of our favorite place to get farm fresh ice cream at home.

Excellent rich and creamy ice cream...big servings for a fair price...used to be a local and loved the returnable glass bottles of milk. Milk shakes are great. Service is sooooo slow.

Exceptional, real ice cream in many flavors and HUGE portions too. They also sell milk in bottles and juices and teas and have a smaller food menu (the fish sandwich is basic, but quite good). Prices are very good as well. A family can eat there without dropping a load of cash. A must stop in Centre County.
