Looking for the quintessential old-time ice cream parlor? This is it.

Nestled in the residential area near the high school is this utterly fantastic dairy store/ice cream parlor. They make a good bit of their own ice cream and love to experiment with different flavors.

We've been enjoying "The Cup" as the locals call it since moving to the valley in 2009...great flavors, all fresh and homemade, and always friendly service from the kids who work the counter. Our only problem is choosing among the many, many favorite flavors when we visit. It's become a spot on "The Bethlehem Tour" when friends and family visit.

I tend to like unusual ice cream flavors...like green tea, rum raisin, etc. They have it ALL! The ice cream quality is really good. There are low fat options if you want and lots of ready-made ice cream products if you prefer those. I've been to both locations. Both are within a short drive or longer walk from my house.... More

The Cup has a wonderful following in Bethlehem, and with good reason. The quality of the housemade ice cream and ice cream cakes is excellent - creamy and rich. They also have an amazing variety of flavors and specialty items - sugar free, fat free, fro-yo, sorbet, and gelato. Definitely something for everyone!

The best chocolate milkshake I have ever had!!! Homemade ice cream... Thick... Smooooth.. Ahaaaa. Getting thirsty for another. This is, with any doubt, the best ice cream in the valley... I think I'm going to gather up the grand kids and make another trip... To the CUP!

Has to be the BEST place to get ice cream in the entire lehigh valley!! My children constantly ask to go there. We don't mind being that it is our favorite after dinner treat.

Gelato, frozen yogurt, sugar free, low fat, you get the picture! All delicious and all reasonably priced. Known to locals as "The Cup", there is another location on the Lehigh campus. It can get really crowded but the staff does it's best to keep up. And the prices are reasonable.

TripAdvisor...you've done it AGAIN!!! The Cup was everything we expected!! Crowded? Yes! Chaotic? Yes!! Delicious, delightful, satisfying, economical and worth the effort...YES!!! The ice cream was so creamy and fresh, we couldn't believe our (very happy) taste buds!! The servings were so generous that my husband and I each ordered a two-scoop sundae and couldn't finish them.

One of the first hot days of 2014 when we stumbled upon this place. Old School Ice Cream joint started back in the 20's I believe. We went for the regular shakes and they were good and thick, long lines but they move you in and out pretty fast. Saw some folks picking up some ice cream cakes that were... More

This quaint ice cream shoppe has history or at least has the appearance of one. It always has long lines on warm nights especially in the summertime, but they move fast! Lots of flavor store choose from as well as hard ice cream to soft to shakes to sundaes. It is reasonably priced.
