Be careful, serves you stale and cold coffee with a smile. Though ice creams are good. I felt annoyed but no one really cared. Pretends to be busy even when there are very few customers around during summer months.

Yummy unique bakery items along with frozen custard & coffee. Something to satisfy everyone. Many options for toppings as well as flavors.

Great stop for a special dessert after dinner or just for a treat. Lots of different flavors, (although only 2 or 3 available as soft serve daily). Smooth and creamy just like real custard should be. Lots of other treats, coffee bar and a nice sit-down area. Also creative specials. A must stop!

I love Whitty's custard! My favorite is the buckeye blast whitser (their version of a blizzard)! It's vanilla custard smothered with chocolate and peanut butter, not to mention peanut butter cups. Awesome to get a whitser and stroll around uptown Athens.

We had heard about frozen custard and decided to make a little trip to Athens Ohio to try it. WOW - delicious. Definitely worth the trip. I got "turtle" but ended up eating most of the vanilla custard by its self. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the college kids walk by.

I got a special and it was good but not the best I have ever had. The toppings were only on top and not throughout the bowl which was disappointing. Good portion and a cool atmosphere.

Not my first visit & certainly not my last! Went here with my son & his friends on Mom's weekend. Oh so good! It doesn't matter how you order your frozen custard (they offer several options) it is outstanding!

I like ice cream on occasion but not enough to go out of my way for it. Frozen custard? A Whister? What is this stuff? Let me tell you what it is....it's addictive as hell! Whitser's are now officially my #3 favorite dessert, behind home made brownies and true NYC style cheesecake.

Best frozen custard. Try it with a shot of espresso. Nice atmosphere and the person working the day we were there was very helpful and patient with some order changes!

It was really hot! So hot our campus tour was cancelled. Walking through town, came across Whits. Chocolate custard was fabulous! We have some of the best custard in Avon Lake but this almost beat it.

Thank soontobeforty
