Cute place with dull unmemorable food. Not a repeat for me. Keep looking for other Ithaca restaurants

Going to Puritan Ice Cream Co during their off season was a treat. It was my first time in Ithaca, and the friend I was visiting was raving about this place for 2 days before coming here.

Homemade ice cream here is the best because of the quality of the dairy products found in Ithaca. I love the green tea ice cream here, but the pumpkin has its own original spin. I have yet to find creamier, fresher ice cream anywhere else.

We love Purity! Purity is most of the reason we drive to Ithaca from the Hudson Valley! Did I mention that we are ice cream and gelato snobs? If you are in Ithaca, don't miss stopping at Purity. Don't order dessert at your restaurant, just exercise some self control and get over to Purity. Enjoy!

Best ice cream too! Apparently high butter fat makes for a delicious ice cream! Egg Nog is not that nutmeg spicy type that should be brown - Purity egg nog is like liquid ice cream/custard. Soooooo Fabulous!

We go to Purity frequently and it is always turns out to be a "special occasion. The ice cream is a genuine, home made, creamy treat. With a wide variety of flavors. Something for everyone. And if you really want something special, now is the time to get EGG NOG. There is none better than Purity!

Three ice creams ordered, three happy customers. Any place that has banana and pumpkin is fine by us! These are our go-to test flavors, and Purity did not disappoint!
