Enter and if it's busy (Usually is) look for number dispenser on the North Wall. Farr's is great Ice Cream, good size portions, lots of varieties to choose from. It's not $1.00 soft Ice Cream but oh so good. Don't forget to take some home, check the freezer and the hand packed. This is the only place my wife can... More

I've been going to Farr's for an ice cream cone since I was a little girl. It was alway such a treat to see all the different colors and flavors, so hard to choose just one! My children loved when we'd surprise them by stopping at Farr's for a treat, and we now carry on the tradition with our grandchildren... More

Farr Better Ice Cream (AKA Farr's) is an Ogden institution. It opened in the early 1900's and has been churning some of the best ice cream the region has to offer. Portion sizes are huge and the selection is never ending. It isn't too busy during the day but expect to wait in a line in the small, old-fashioned ice... More

Love stopping by Farr Better Ice Cream Shoppe! They have several varieties of Ice Cream and other delights. They also have some desserts on sale at a fantastic price. Each year they have their specialty ice creams which include Pumpkin and Candy Cane. Looking forward to the Pumpkin again! It's delicious....

We stopped here after touring the Ogden Temple during their open house before their dedication. The ice cream was good, I was personally disappointed as I really wanted black cherry ice cream. They had it but it was with chocolate chips and I don't care for chocolate. I ended up having the cherry pecan which was ok, but the cherries... More

This place looks like an old-fashioned ice cream shop. There isn't much indoor seating, but the ice cream is fabulous. We all loved our selections: chocolate peanut butter, raspberry cheesecake, cake mix, bubble gum and brownies on the moon. The cake mix has a ripple of chocolate frosting in it. This helps my conundrum of wanting the cake mix flavor... More

Great ice cream to enjoy and available in dozens of favors! This quaint store also sells replica toys from the 50s and 60s. Definitely a delicious step back in time!

Farr's ice cream is standing room only at the store we went to. The ice cream was good but not so fantastic that I have to go back immediately. Blue Bell is better!

Great nostalgic place. We love their black licorice ice cream. They also sell a lot of fun vintage candy and gifts. If you are in the mood for a treat or hard ice cream, then go here. They don't have anything other than ice cream and candy here.
