Delicous ice cream, friendly staff, and great service. Try the 🍪 dough and seasonal flavors. This is a must visit stop if you are on campus. The 🍦 scoops are generous.

MSU Dairy store has great ice cream and malts at very reasonable prices. Their lemon custard ice cream (seasonal) is fantastic!

Great ice cream parlor with some unique flavors. Scoops are huge and they can pack a cone so well that it stays together when tipped upside down!
