The only downside to the Creamery is deciding which flavor to choose. The ice cream variety is fantastic and priced well for the serving size. Expect crowds, but that further supports how good the ice cream actually is. You can purchase dry ice to take additional ice cream back home with you.

A friend told me to try this place and I am glad I did. I had raspberry sherbert and it exceeded my expectations. I will use my friend's: go to the Creamery.

Arguably the best ice cream anywhere! I had the WPSU coffee ice cream that was perfectly laced with chocolate chunks. It was awesome! My bride tried the strawberry yogurt which was rich and creamy and filled with late spring joy. Will visit again!

A big deal was made of this place, but I didn't see that it was much different than any other ice cream you can get. It was good, but not outstanding. Also you can't mix flavors with multiple scoops, and we had no idea why. You just can't.The scoops are about twice the size of normal scoops anyway.

The title says it all! I love the Creamery! They offer tons of ice cream flavors and other dairy products that you can take home, like cheeses and milk. You can even buy a tub of your ice cream to take home.... Dangerous situation at our home! If you're in town, you must try it!

I had heard that the Creamery had the BEST ice cream and that anyone visiting State College should make a stop here. Admittedly, the ice cream is delicious. They offer small scoop tastings and I almost filled up on that alone. The ice cream is very smooth and decadent and almost all of the flavors seemed worthy of purchase. They... More

I travel through State College about every 6 weeks or so. I always stop by the Creamery to pick up a dozen or more half gallons of ice scream to deliver to friends of mine. Often times I'm told that I need to go more frequently to satisfy their cravings. What a great treat!

I know the title might be bold, but honestly some of the best ice cream I've ever had. They have fridge after fridge stuffed with tubs for you to take home or sit there and eat. Go for the different types of coffee too. Run by students and enjoyed by all. Both traditional and non-traditional flavors are available, but when... More

The Creamery is a favorite spot of mine since I was a student back in the late 80's but now that my son is an incoming freshman I have a new love for the great ice cream and variety of flavors. You cannot beat the price and get a mountain of ice cream that I can never finish. A definite... More

I remember when we would visit state college and go to the original location. The lines may be long but don't give up. The line moves pretty quickly and then you can dive in to deliciousness
