Quietly tucked away on Rt. 47 in Hadley, this Soft Serve stand is a true "Best in Class" find! The stand looks like it should be on the midway of a state fair. Guess what...it was...this is the real deal! If you were lucky enough be at one of the fairs (doing the fair circuit) where this stand used to... More

Wow what a surprise! Drove by this place many times without thinking to stop but so glad I did. Ice cream is by far the best in the area...rich and creamy.

This is a no frills, no flash good as it gets soft serve. An older couple make a hobby of this seasonal offering, no kids serving you.

This is by far one of the best places to get soft serve ice cream! It is so rich and creamy - I once asked if they had any low fat ice cream - and she said nothing is low fat here. Their peanut butter sauce on the sundaes is amazing too!!

We love this place. Patty and her staff are amazing, friendly, and welcoming, like old friends. They work hard to keep the place clean and try to accommodate seating areas and offer bug spray, etc while you enjoy your cone. The soft serve is absolutely the best soft serve around! I don't know what she does differently but it really... More

Locals know this is the place to go for soft serve ice cream. It's a little family owned stand with 50's style charm. Don't be scared off by the abutting car lot. Look instead at the cute little tables and flowers and enjoy your ice cream!

It's in the middle of nowhere but worth trying to find it. A hidden gem but nothing fancy. If you like the basic chocolate, vanilla, or twist with the usual suspects for toppings you will love this place. Only basic outdoor seating. I try and bring my kids here at least once every Summer.

Okay, so based on the reviews we read here, we went looking for Pat's on Rt. 47 in Hadley. As there is no specific address and no name on the place (the lady behind the counter said this place is called Creamy Dreamy or something like that) I'm assuming this is the place these reviews are talking about. It is... More

Pat's has the best ice cream; excellent flavor and texture, big cones, complementary peanuts upon request. Please know that it is a roadside stand, and not a walk-in shop as it is pictured on Tripadvisor, though.

I had passed it many, many times but after reading previous reviews had to stop at this little stand in Hadley. I love soft serve ice cream but this was so creamy and delicious it was like Heaven in a cone. The place was quite busy for an afternoon in April Located on Rte 47 just south of Chmura Rd... More
