This place was built by Steve Herrell (he founded Steve's in Somerville in the 1970s), inventor of the smoosh-in and one of the progenitors of premium ice cream with creative and delicious flavors. The hot fudge and real chocolate sprinkles/jimmies are delightful, as is the chocolate pudding ice cream and delightful ice cream cakes made with two layers of ice... More

Enjoyed the natural mint chocolate chip. Very fresh. Also tried the peppermint peanut butter pattie, which had a big chunk of frozen peanut butter in it.

We bumped into this place after lunch on a chilly afternoon but, the many varieties/self creations of ice cream killed the chill or added to the chill which i didn't regret AT ALL! If i had missed, I would have regretted for a long time. Another surprise after the interview at Williston.

I have waited more than half an hour for this ice cream and it is so worth it. Don't let the long line discourage you, it moves fast and these people are waiting for a reason. The ice cream is amazing, try the weird flavors, they are really good and much better than they sound. The hot fudge is to... More

I visit this place several times a year. I am always staggered by the variety of ice cream flavors,many exotic,on offer. Yesterday,however,I hit the jackpot. Licorice very good. Baklava better. But the ginger sorbet was a knockout.The best cold dessert I have ever,ever had(I am over 70). Kudos to all concerned!

Just arrived here and was so disappointed. The charm of this place has disappeared. Maybe under construction. But why fix something that wasn't broken?! Service was terribly slow. At least the ice cream still has its magic I guess....

Sorry to disappoint you, but one star? Really? We are totally under construction and just reopened to be able to serve customers. Sorry service is a bit slow. Staff is learning new space. After nearly 40 years, renovations and new equipment is necessary in order to continue to make our ice cream. Check us out again in the new year! More

Wide and somewhat exotic selection of homemade ice-cream flavors. But overpriced, I would say, and somewhat crowded

How can you go wrong here? Whatever you choose it is going to be great. They make their own ice cream, and will smoosh in whatever toppings you select. It is conveniently located in Thorne's Marketplace in downtown Northampton. A great after dinner treat.

I have always loved Herrells for ice cream. It never ceases to amaze me on the flavors that they have and there's always, always is a line out the door on weekends. Truly an outstanding sundae and quality ingredients of toppings and creme. Great little baked goodies! I've been coming here for 30 years???
