“Great selection and staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

"Wow!" Loved our visit here. It's not your ordinary ice cream store, with lots of creative flavors and combinations. The staff was wonderful in letting us try some of the flavors before deciding, and even offering suggestions based upon what looked intriguing. The outdoor eating area is delightful. We'll definitely be back when next in the area!

“Really good ice cream and fudge sauce, EXCELLENT cupcakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

This was such a treat, the biggest problem is deciding what to have because it is all so good. The hot fudge must be made on premises, best I have had. Peppermint stick ice cream was outstanding, but the real stand outs were the cupcakes. We tried several varieties, all excellent. The raspberry lemonade cupcake was wonderful, as was the strawberries ad cream and the chocolate raspberry. Definitely stop here if you're in the area, you won't be sorry!

“Best ice cream in New York!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

With tradition of making ice cream for generations as they opened in 1936, and our grandmas' recipes, using only fresh and natural products, like hormone-free milk from their local farms, this is the best ice cream in New York!

“Don't pass this place up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This is a fabulous piece of Ithaca history and it lives up to its name. The servers were very patient as I tried to figure out what I was going to have from the vast selection. And it was worth the wait - choco/peanut butter ice cream w/hot fudge sauce. My husband had the apple crisp sundae . Wish we had a Purity where we live.

“Great ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

A must stop for any traveler. So many flavors to choose from though they should have something that describes flavors that don't clearly explain what is in it.
