Pat's has the best ice cream; excellent flavor and texture, big cones, complementary peanuts upon request. Please know that it is a roadside stand, and not a walk-in shop as it is pictured on Tripadvisor, though.

I had passed it many, many times but after reading previous reviews had to stop at this little stand in Hadley. I love soft serve ice cream but this was so creamy and delicious it was like Heaven in a cone. The place was quite busy for an afternoon in April

Located on Rte 47 just south of Chmura Rd
Open 10 am to 7 pm in April - open later during the summer
Cones $2.50; also have Sundaes and fresh lemonade, burgers and hot dogs.

This is a little stand on the side of the road that serves the creamiest, yummiest ice cream I've ever had. The lovely ladies who work there are very nice and they make you feel welcome with tables and chairs set up along with old magazines if you want to read. Beware during mosquito season though in late summer...they like the ice cream too!

In the area for a visit, past seven on a Sunday night and was glad to see the NY Style Soft Serve stand on Rt 47 was still open.
Had one of the better Burgers I've had in a while.
One of the ladies brought it out to me at the picnic table wrapped in a couple of paper towels.
Then she brought out a napkin dispenser, "you may need these". (i Needed three)
Had everything they could put on it, Lettuce, Tomato, Cheese, Onion (big slice) Pickles, Mustard, Ketchup, Relish. Roll was fresh. Also had a local draft root beer which was very good, can't recall the brand.
A few cars came in for Ice Cream while I was eating my burger.
A couple also mentioned that they were glad they were open. I believe the hours change by Columbus Day Weekend. I got a nice wave as I drove off which I returned, not many places like this anymore. Highly recommend.

This little roadside stand that looks like a concession stand at a carnival has some of the best soft-serve ice cream in the area. They bill it as "NY Style" which I assume means it's frozen custard, or at least has a higher fat content than regular soft serve. This is not health food, it's summertime pleasure food so relax and enjoy! They also serve burgers, etc. which I did not try. Location is on Rt. 47 between Hadley and S. Hadley. There are some tables to sit at outside but it's not really a scenic location due to the used car lot next door.
