I can't pass by Village Soft Serve without stopping. It's in the Finger Lakes town of Ovid near Seneca Lake, NY. I pull in to their parking lot and always order the exact same item. Why? Because they know how to make the perfect "Brown Cow". They have another ice cream stand in the town of Lodi, south of Ovid... More

I gave this place another shot to see if it was any better ,because it is close by. Sadly, I can't say it is . The ice cream is creamy , so filled with air that it took me 10 sec to eat it. I don't know about you, but I like a little body to my ice cream. The... More

We stopped here for dessert after dinner. It is counter service. The ice cream scooper seemed bored but did suggest a doggie sundae for our dog. The ice cream was average soft serve- nothing special.

Nice little ice cream shop. Eat outside or inside. Creamiest soft serve ice cream I have ever eaten. Stopped there twice while visiting the area. Wine ice cream for adults also. Many unusual flavorings for ice cream. I am partial to Turtle Sundaes..

When we are in the area for the summer ,we always gave this place an other chance , and it never seems to change. Small portions and if you ask for something special them act very annoyed , but this is very common in the town. If you are in the senaca falls area stop at Max's it is the... More
