Thrilled that we discovered this little joint just south of Cooperstown. They mix your favorite toppings into your preferred ice cream flavor -- like the chocolate with snickers and peanut butter or the vanilla with almond joy and pecans that we loved.

We visited Cooperstown, NY for a baseball tournament which lasted a week. We lived directly across the street from the Penguin. We went there 3 times and were not disappointed at all. Homemade ice cream and all the trimmings - priced comparable to Ben and Jerry's and Cold Stone - BUT the homey atmoshere made it a great place to... More

Stopped on a recent visit to Cooperstown. Was taken by the "custom" adjective before Ice Cream. Not just the run-of-the-mill trucked in same four flavored you can get almost anywhere. Oh, all the flavor options. The unique consistency, not quite hard ice cream, definitely not soft serve, adds to the "custom" label. One of my favorite is black raspberry and... More

My son was at Cooperstown Dreams Park, so we went for ice cream. There was a long line, but it moved quickly. My order was ready before I even paid, and we had six in our party! You pick a flavor, about 50 choices of Hard ice cream and they make it right there! From a vanilla or chocolate base.... More

Right on the main road into Coop, Penguin always has a gathering of ice cream lovers at the window. Service is super fast and the selection of mixable flavors (I had cappuccino with a tiny mix of cinnamon- yum!) is awesome. Kids loved it and staff was super friendly. A++

I visited the Penguin in search of a refreshing treat. I was delightfully surprised on how many options for custom ice cream there was. You pick a base and then pick up to 3 mix-ins. There was a lot of unique flavors and combinations you can make. Our ice cream was ready very fast and the staff was friendly. However,... More
