“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

I wish that the location were closer to Cornell, but it is good that it is not because visiting Purity becomes a rare treat. Consistently yummy. They close at 10, but let me in once even after they had closed since they saw us outside and they were still cleaning up.

“Yummy non dairy choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

We go to purity a couple times per month...basically whenever we 're in Ithaca. They usually have four soy based flavors and a couple of sorbets. My husband eats dairy and can't get enough of the Finger Lakes Tourist.

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you come to Ithaca, you must stop at Purity. I love all kinds of ice cream, but Purity vanilla knocks my socks off. So simple and perfect.
