This was a bit out of the way to find on UNL campus, but we enjoyed the local cheese selection and the ice cream was fine.

Even without Cheese Curds the selection at the UN L Dairy Store is impressive. Try the Cappuccino Ice Cream for a great treat on a warm afternoon.

We stopped here for ice cream and were very happy with our choice. My husband's family are ice cream connoisseurs so are hard to please. However, this was perfect in their view - rich and creamy but not overly sweet. They have a wide variety of flavors. We also bought some of their local made cheese which turned out to... More

We met friends at the dairy on a Sunday afternoon. There is a great variety of flavor. Ran into 2 other couples we knew. Great ice cream.

I'm not gonna lie, I LOVE the UNL dairy store. No ambiance- it's on the east campus of the University of Nebraska. No singing for tips- it's staffed by students. No disappointments- their ice cream, made on campus, is fantastic! You never know what new flavor a student had invented! On one visit, they had grape ice cream! In addition... More

This is not just a ice cream store it is a landmark. If you are in Lincoln it is a must in Summer. The ice cream is always good and rich in flavor. Enjoy!

They don't have the cows close by but they do get all ingredients locally and make it onsite. Even have windows to watch if they are in process. ice cream was great as we got a couple of flavors. Worth a stop

Stopped in with the family on a hot Saturday evening. The staff was friendly and efficient, and they definitely serve up value for your money. The ice cream had great flavor, but was a bit too rich (high fat content ice cream) for my taste. The consistency was very silky and smooth, and not too sweet. Overall, a high quality... More

It's 95 degrees outside so a stop to get some ice was a must. They had 14 or so ice cream options and the ones we picked out were so yummy. We saw the equipment in the windows and also picked out some cheese and meat to bring home.
