The ice cream here is OK, but I wish they had a smaller portion for less money. I can rarely eat that much ice cream at one time and hate to throw half of it away. Some better value would be appreciated. I am also...More

Best ice cream! A visit to the on-campus creamery is a "must" on your Penn State visit. Besides ice cream, you can pick up snacks and lunch.

The best ice cream ever! I don’t eat ice cream at home but do indulge every time I go to Happy Valley. It makes happy valley even happier. My favorite flavor is PSU coffee break. 😋🍦

May be the best ice cream you ever eat in your entire life! The flavor selections are endless. But, even the simple vanilla will knock your socks off!

Went there before the football game, seemed that the line was a block long, had time to kill & all worked out, really nice setup, they ice cream was amazing "WHITEOUT", wish I could find that back home! Only drawback is you can't mix flavors.

While visiting for a PSU football game, we swung into the Creamery. It was quite busy for a Friday night but we got through the line quickly. I highly recommend the butter pecan!

It's busy all summer. Students start returning 2nd week of August. There is a parking structure directly behind the building with very reasonable rates.

I think the cones were around $3.50 or $4.00. They are one size only, huge! You can get it in a dish also. Worth it.
