It's Ben and Jerry's - what could be less than 5 stars about that? Ice cream great, lines perfectly acceptable (5 minutes or so), and friendly staff. Yes, the ice cream is a little pricey and you could probably go the the grocery store and pick up a pint for half the price, but there is nothing like going to... More

Not the original shop like i was told, but a great a place to stop when you're strolling the Church Street pedestrian mall in the middle of walkable Burlington. It is small so look for a time when it isn't crowded. They tell me there are those times. You can sit outside for 50 yards in both directions on the... More

Despite what many people think, this was NOT the very first Ben & Jerry's location. The first location was actually in an old gas station near Vermont Pub and Brew. There's really nothing special about this Ben & Jerry's, it's literally just another scoop shop. There's nothing to tour or nothing historic about it. Be prepared for gigantic lines that... More

Staff is super friendly and willing to let you sample more than one flavor until you decide. You can get flavors here like Salted Carmel that you cannot find in the grocery store. Yum.

Just had to try this delicious ice cream in its original location. Normal little store with great ice cream! I went back for more. The choices were a bit overwhelming so the waitron made some informed choices for me.

It's packed full and very poorly laid out for traffic flow/ordering (Hey, Ben & Jerry's, I can say that about many of your stores -- what's up with that?) but you've got to go. Because it's Ben & Jerry's, and it's always darned good.

The Ben & Jerry's ice cream store in Burlington is not its original location but a true monument to the founders success. Try the factory tour as well to hear a remarkable success story.

Awesome selection of delectable ice cream in all kinds of formats. Try the cookie cream waffle cone you won't regret it!. Despite a HUGE lineup (at least 30 people) the crew was really efficient and we had our ice cream within about 15 mins. A scrumptious way to end a hot summer day!

They always have a smile and when I asked which was gluten free, they handed over a list of all the flavors that was gluten free. There was a lot to choose from, more than just chocolate and vanilla! A favorite stop of ours when coming to Burlington. The last Ben and Jerry's we went to in Lake Placid was... More

We were exploring and walking the Church St area for the afternoon.... And it was a fabulous bit of timing to find the #1 company store for a treat. Well managed, cheerful staff. It has to be a tiring shift to work....the place is no doubt constantly busy all day long...at least all summer! Great flavors, generous scoops, very reasonable... More
