We had "Banana Split Envy"

After a 16 year absence, we went back to State College to visit for the First Night Celebration and I took my husband and kids to Meyer Dairy which I had loved when I lived there. It is an old-fashioned dairy where they process the milk and make the ice cream on site. The dairy farm itself is... read more

The best ice cream and chocolate milk. I drive forty minutes just for Meyers dairy. The lines are long but worth the wait.

Meyers Dairy is a staple of State College. It's been owned by the same family for decades and their ice cream/milk is fantastic. It's also inexpensive and located outside busy downtown and the packed lines at the creamery. The wait is never longer than ten minutes and there's a mini golf course nearby making this a great date night location.

This has always traditionally been the last stop before heading out of town. My family is all from State College/Bellefonte area and when visiting we always stopped for ice cream.

From the mismatched decor to the glass bottles, this is an old school place. Ice cream is good. The milk is great! Gonna miss it when it's gone.

Since we're locals this is where we get our milk, in half gallon glass bottles. Absolutely delicious. Supermarket milk can NOT compare to milk from a dairy farm. What a difference! The ice cream is ok, I don't think there is much flavor there, but my husband loves it and the lines are always out the door during the warm... More

My family went here for ice cream, only to discover that they only took cash. When we came back with cash, we got dinner as well as ice cream. There food was fine, but not great. The ice cream was excellent.

I had a yummy vanilla float with coffee ice cream; others had huge sundaes ( their regular serving ) and cones. We had a Mexi Hot (chili dog) also. Fresh milk ( I think no BST?) is sold in environmentally friendly glass containers ( returnable). They also had local cheese, chocolate, sticky buns and honey.

I had to see what all the rave was about and it was spot on! I had a delicious scoop of fresh ice cream and it was fantastic! Go for a cone!
