It was a beastly hot summer night and we were surprised that there was a long line with the ominous thunder and lightning. Service was quick. We each had the smallest cup of hard serve ice cream. They serve soft serve and all kinds of sundae toppings. The rain started just as we got into our cars. A great way... More

I noticed this place a couple of years ago and when my friend and I were in Windsor Locks again today I said, wasn't there an ice cream place around here somewhere? "It was green", I said. "And it had 'Dairy" in the name." And voila there it appeared. We had pizza at the Skyline and backtracked. It was ten... More

You know spring has arrived when Dairy Creme opens up. Fantastic heath bar flurry and love all the different flavors they have in soft serve.

Love going to Dairy Creme, especially since a couple people in my family favor soft-serve. They have a good selection of flavors that changes frequently, including some sherbet type flavors. You can get sundaes and milk shakes and floats and concoctions with mix-ins. They have picnic tables so you can sit and enjoy your ice cream before driving away. Sometimes,... More

The ice cream treats are the best and made within your line of sight. In a variety of flavors and textures. The prices are more than reasonable. If you see a long long line when you pull in don't be discouraged. Lines move quickly.

The Dairy Creme has been in business for as far back as I can remember! My parents used to take us there for soft serve cones while growing up in Windsor Locks. My husband and I are there weekly for the best hard ice cream in the area! Love the Coconut Almond Fudge! Their soft serve is so creamy and... More

The dairy creme has been a family owed business from the beginning and has grown from a little shack to a successful business. Everyone from town as well as out of town come for the best ice cream ever!

This establishment has been around for many generations, and afforded to employ the teens of the town of Windsor Locks over the years, and neighboring Suffield. Good softserve, and usually each year they have a gourmet hard ice cream from a local distributor....this year I don't know whose making it, but you have to try the Chocolate Frosting Chocolate hard...

This is a great little ice cream stop ~ i can't even remember how we stumbled upon it, but we go back every year when we're passing through on our way to New England. Always crowded, but friendly, with lots of variety -- never disappoints! we'll be back again this summer ...
