The Creamery has the best milkshakes I've ever had! Their servings for ice cream are huge! Also, they have such unique flavors. I absolutely love this place!

You can not go to PSU and not stop at the Creamery. Although the lines can be quite lengthy, it is worth the wait. Ice cream is always fresh and they are very generous on the portions.

One size, which is big; in the college, parking available the sign said but I did not park so I'm not sure if it is close by or free... students cook and the store actually sell other products like cheese (parmigiana very good), milk, coffee, etc as well as memorabilia... outside and inside seating... Great college atmosphere!

What a wonderful place! The ice cream is delicious! There is also cheese and cheese curds!! The milk from the cows at Penn State is used to make this ice cream. The students dish up and sell the ice cream. Support the University and enjoy the ice cream, it is delicious. Stop by you won't be disappointed. :)

We stopped at the Berkey Creamery for dessert after dinner. It was busy but not overly full. We both had the death by chocolate. Don't worry it won't kill you but it is to die for. As a bonus, they also gave us two cups of soft pretzel bites with vanilla icing at no cost.

The only reason I didn't give a perfect score was due to the very long lines. I think it hurts their business because a lot of people don't have the time to wait. The ice cream is the BEST and the service and cleanliness is superb!!

We went out of our way to try this spot. It has a great local reputation. The ice cream is creamy but also overly sweetened. We couldn't finish it. It also appears to be artificially colored. Not my idea of gourmet (even on a hot day after lots of walking).

We lucked out and went for a late night snack so the line wasn't long at all. The staff was friendly. I was also able to pick up a nice souvenir while waiting for my milkshake.

A refreshing area to stop for ice cream after touring the campus at Penn State University. Ice cream is made by the students who attend their chef classes. Has a restroom and the building has indoor seating. Great selection of ice creams, etc.
