Best ice cream in town, probably best I have ever had. They make everything from scratch, by hand, and they are adamant about using as few artificial flavors or colors as possible. The quality really shines through. There is a reason why there is always a line, even in the middle of winter! It is run by a middle aged couple, who are incredibly sweet and dedicated to their business.

If you like a flavor, ask for it! They are always experimenting and love suggestions. They listen to what people ask for.

Price is normal ice cream shop pricing. In fact, you can get a pint of their stuff for less than a pint of Ben and Jerry's. Why would I ever buy pints from the grocery store again!?

Oh, also, they give free ice cream to dogs! And free samples!

I love this place.

want good ice cream? This one's a no-brainer!! There a a lot of flavors to choose from here at Brr-kee's. This ice cream is rich and smooth and has excellent flavor. There are some tables around the building to sit and enjoy the outdoors while having ice cream with friends and family.

An old favorite, since my days living just up the road from Oakmont, PA -- Brr-kee's Ice Cream & Yogurt is still an exceptional treat. Especially with so many ice cream shoppes closing, a visit to Brr-kee's is a real treat of a treat! You can always find a new or days-gone-by favorite. Their prices might be just a bit high, but it's worth every penny. Not to mention that Oakmont is one of my favorite small towns in western PA.

Brr-Kee's has been around Oakmont for many years now, and is a popular hangout in summer. It is open all year, however, but doesn't have an inside eating area, so you pretty much have to buy and run in cold weather. There are always 20 or so homemade flavors of ice cream, plus you can get smoothies, sundaes, milkshakes,etc. The products are always fresh and tasty.
