“Takes you back to your childhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

The Dairy Creme is just down the road from the Bradley Airport and is a wonderful little ice cream shop. They a lot of different flavors to choose from and a selection of hard ice cream, soft ice cream and yogurt. I have been there several times on various trips to the area and there is always a pretty good line, even when the weather is on the cool side, but it is very much worth the wait.

It reminds me of trips to the local dairy when I was a kid and you will see many families sitting around enjoying their purchase, and young ones with ice cream moustaches. The lines move fairly quickly and they get your order out promptly. I'll be back there on my next trip to Hartford during the warm months! The atmosphere is great if you think a lot of people sitting around enjoying a cool treat on a warm summer night to be a good climate. For me the atmosphere is wonderful, although it is very informal. It is a great place to stop by if you are staying at an airport hotel and want a nice end of the evening treat.

“A family favorite!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

Less than a mile from Bradley Airport, it is a very simple ice cream outlet which is clearly a big local favorite. Early evenings often see long lines but it is definitely worth the wait. A big selection of regular ice cream as well as three or four flavours of soft-serve or soft serve yoghurt plus all the toppings one could wish for. The flavors are not overly sweet which we like. The place closes for the winter season this year on October 9th and will reopen in the Spring although that date has still to be posted.
