Awesomely, wonderfully average

Get the ice cream. Be amazed by the mis-matched decor. Love the ambiance, and rue the day that this place disappears. This State College institution is truly old school, and you may see the elderly owner here working anytime day or night. As a restaurant, it's truly basics. As an ice cream... read more

Although people rave about the Penn State ice cream near by, I take Meyer's over PSU anyday! Always at least 15 or more flavors. Locals recycle their glass milk jugs. There is a small sandwich shop also, although I only ever eat the ice cream. Nice grounds with picnic tables for you to enjoy your treat!

Local dairy store with outside seating. Their ice-cream is excellent, it's worth the visit! I even take my dog and sit outside to enjoy it. They sell other products too ( I did not like the ice-tea) and only take cash.

Been coming here for many years. One of the best ice cream places in State College. The sundaes are delicious!

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.
