We love the Berkey Creamery, they always have the best ice cream, milk shakes, and coffee. Lovely outdoor seating area, and the staff is always very helpful (and patient when you can't decide what flavor you'd like!) very nice atmosphere and if you're in State College this is a "must"

Still my favorite even after all these years! I haven't been to The Creamery since I was a student back in the late 80's, but the icecream is just as good as I remember. Still cheap for a huge cone- $3.50. A must visit when in State College.

The ice cream is homemade and wonderful. The flavors rotate and are not always available. They will ship their ice cream, using dry ice. Be prepared to wait in a long line. Parking is difficult, but there is a parking deck nearby. They will not mix flavors. If you want more than one flavor, you need to order more than... More

Every time we visit Penn State, we stop at the Creamery. The ice creams is never a disappointment. This last time we bought some cheese to take home. It was so good and so inexpensive. We can't wait to go back and try more cheeses and of course more ice cream!

On A beautiful sunny day in State College, we walked over to the creamery and had a huge cone. Mmmmmmm. The servers could practice a little on customer service, but they were pretty busy....so The ice cream is a culinary delight, best of the best. I had chocolate, my hubby had peanut butter swirl. I got a taste of his.... More

I'm not big ice cream person, but this was pretty good. We had a vanilla, strawberry, peach and espresso and they were all very tasty. No wait even though it looked very busy.
