I went to Purity Ice Cream because of the reviews I read. The place was full the day we visited,but the line went fast and we could find seats for ourselves. We tried 6 different flavours (we were a big group!!) and all of them...More

32 oz shake with a hot fudge sundae on top! Nothing will get you closer to heaven on earth; and I’m not religious.

Excellent ice cream! But I also love their sandwiches, especially the grilled cheese with sautéed kale and sweet potato. Also recommend the Happy Bowl. Great place for families. Looking forward to trying their brunch selections too.

Hi ESS808, I love the Happy Bowl too (though I chowed a burger for lunch today...). We love families and get lots for weekend brunch. We are now doing breakfast during the week too! Try it out. Cheers, Bruce

Purity is a wonderful spot for lunch on weekdays and brunch on the weekends. The soups are home made and delicious, as is the avocado toast. We especially like the oatmeal blueberry pancakes!

Several people mentioned that Purity was one of "The" places to grab a bite in Ithaca. We stopped in for a quick ice cream. I tried a sundae with 2 scoops of what I was told were local favorites. It was quite satisfying!

Hi bynw! Thanks for the visit. Hope to see you again soon on your next Ithaca visit. There is even more Purity parking across Meadow Street from the front of Purity! Bruce

This is an Ithaca institution-not to be missed. Their ‘chips’ as in mocha chip are out of this world. And speaking of mocha chip - it’s my favorite flavor hands down.

Hi crasher13392016! Purity is centrally located in Ithaca, which prides itself in being "Centrally Isolated"! Glad you found us and had a nice time. Bruce
