We were all set to sink our taste buds into the ice cream. Such a let down, we have tasted MUCH better ice cream while in NY state. Perry Ice Cream has it beat by 100 fold. People in Ithaca could go to Top's Super Market and get Perry Ice Cream by the half gallon. Have to try it then you will see what we mean by it. Flavors are out of this world.

Purity is still one of the very best ice cream places I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The coconut ice cream is just a dream come true. I have been waiting for a decade to return and have more and it did not disappoint. It has never disappointed.

If you happen to be in Ithaca...do yourself a favor and stop by Purity. Make sure to try a flavor you've never had before...The pumpkin praline brought a bit of fall to a summer day! Hubby had the Turtle Sundae and couldn't even finish it. Service was fast and friendly.

Huge variety of flavors. This is what ice cream is supposed to taste like. The ice cream sandwiches are legendary. Don't miss it!
