My wife and I stopped here during a visit to Penn State. We both said we had the best ice cream of our lives, and we're pretty old. The price for what you get is very reasonable. We had lunch, but it was a very ordinary sandwich. The ice cream is the star!

Just visited 2 weeks ago. Flavors are plentiful, as usual. Scoops are large, but you still cannot mix flavors. Prices have gone up a little, but they are still reasonable. Really good cheeses and yogurt as well. Still a treat after all these years since graduation.

Great ice cream; very reasonably priced; wish there was short term parking nearby. Most of the tables were taken by single students studying but we found a spot. Definitely a must-stop when visiting Penn State

The lines here can be long, but it's worth the wait, and it moves very quickly. They have a system set up where you first tell how many cones or cups you want and pay. Next step is to tell the designated person what flavors you want in said cone/cup. Last step is to pick up your cone/cup of deliciousness!... More

It's where Ben and Jerry learned how to make ice cream. My personal favorite is Alumni Swirl - vanilla ice cream with blueberry swirl. Yum yum yum.

Almost any Local person in State College will tell you the The Creamery is not only one of the places that you and your family/friends love to go, it is definitely one of the places that you take out of town guests to visit. The ice cream is delicious, the portions huge (!), the service (student run) quick, efficient and... More

Berkey Creamery is the unique ice cream shop which is a must to visit. Your visit to State College will not count if you did not try to taste the ice cream. The most delicious assortment to chose from. Enjoy it while you are in PSU.

We dropped our daughter off for her junior year and hit the creamery before our trip home. We bought cones to enjoy and ice cream and chocolate milk to bring home. Staff is friendly and quick. No line to our surprise.

Sorry to hear that there is no more free 15 min to run in for cheese or a yogurt. Ice cream lines vary in length but there are plenty of servers to keep things moving. Dr. Pete's Recovery drink is available there --- I like the strawberry better than the chocolate but both are extraordinary products. Lots of ice cream... More

What a great place. Huge line but moves fast and there is basically only one size. Very unique flavors but some standards as well. Good prices and can buy other snacks as well. Places to sit inside and out. Super fresh and creamy.

Thank Michelle S
