“Great spot!!”

Babcock Hall Dairy Store
Ranked #1 of 28 Dessert in Madison
Certificate of Excellence
Description: One of the biggest names in modern Dairy (Babcock) combined with Ice Cream (which I, ice cream expert, rank as a five). This needs adding.

The sandwich of the day was a chicken, pepper jack wrap, and the ice cream was superb!! Cute little tables, casual atmosphere. Tour the ice cream making process going on upstairs, if you have time.

Wow. The university makes its own ice cream. Makes me want to be a badger. The ice cream was exceptionally fresh and creamy. Yum.

With the exception of the two or three most expensive "premium" flavors, Babcock Hall uses gelatin in all their ice creams. So know when you go that you're eating crushed up animal bones - usually with high fructose corn syrup - instead of the standard ice cream ingredients (cream, sugar, etc).

It's a cute place to stop. The ice cream is good and it doesn't melt fast, which is nice since my
son is a slow ice cream eater. The employees were fast and friendly. We went upstairs to see the
production area. No one was working in there at the time but it's still neat to see all the equipment that is used. Definitely stop here if you are in town.

You know your in wisconsin when the subject at hand is have you tried wisconsin custard ice cream. And yes it is fabulous but if you are looking a scoop of homemade creamy fabulous ice cream then babcock hall in madison on the campus is a must. They also have cheeses made there too that have won awards. Totally worth the stop while visiting madison.
