Great ice cream, and a good gathering spot for students/visitors to grab lunch or a snack. Kind of combines a convenience store with famous Penn State ice cream. For tea drinkers, I was pleased to see they have Harney and Sons teas:-)

The ice cream here is enough for a meal. A decadent meal. This is an iconic spot we take all company to.

This was my first visit there in 40 years since I had been a student there. I took the family for the quality of the ice cream in the experience. Like many other things it has moved to a new bigger modern location. Many years ago it offered high quality ice cream at a more than reasonable price because it... More

This is a must when at or near PSU. You just can't get ice cream like this from anywhere. Their ice cream has a rich, smooth, creamy texture, with loads of flavor. Enjoyed it so much we bought some to bring home. Do yourself a favor!

This ice cream is a high fat treat that cannot be purchased in any grocery store. Peachy Paterno is my all-time favorite. I've tried other flavors and they are good ice cream but nothing I would absolutely rave about. But if you like peach ice cream, this is the best I have ever found! It is a required stop anytime...

How could you not love ice cream made my students? If at PSU, stop have a shake, a bowl of ice cream. It won't disappoint.

If you want the best ice cream you have ever tasted, stop in. The only problem is deciding which flavor (may have to visit a couple of times). My husband and I married in the chapel on campus in April 2010 and held our reception at the Hilton Garden Inn. Our only request was for ice cream from the creamery... More

We always stop for an ice cream cone at Berkey Creamery while in State College. The portions are huge and the ice cream is delicious. There are many flavors to choose from too. The only negative I would say is the staff is be a rude at times but maybe that's because they are so busy. It is also a... More

It is an institution and a requirement when visiting. The ice cream is very rich and luxurious. It's one size portions and lines can be long. They also sell local cheeses and selected items. Worth the trip.

I love ice cream. And this place doesn't disappoint! I had not been to the "new" location of the Creamery (shows how long I've been on the PSU campus), but I'm certainly glad we came here! On a Sunday summer afternoon there was an expected long line, but the line moves very quick, and very efficiently. We all had different... More
