We stopped in for some ice cream after dark. The ice cream selection was not the best, but the quality made up for it. Very yummy! The smooth, creamy soft serve vanilla is good. I got the toddler size and it was a generous helping! The outdoor lights were nice so we could sit on a picnic table on the... More

I love vanilla softserve. Vanilla softserve means summer and Trimmers is the place I go. Service is good. Easy parking and right on 96 as you go out of town towards the lake or on the way to Ovid and then Seneca Falls. They have all sorts of treats, sodas, floats, special sundaes using the great local hard ice cream... More

Trimmers has the best soft-serve ice cream in the area; service is always friendly; and there's a frequent visitor card for free soft-serve.

On the north end of town. Great for soft serve ice cream or a snack, especially when travelling between wine trails.

The ice cream at this place is just ok. In New York State where there are plenty of cows and milk, I would expect much better. If you really want the real thing; visit Purity in Ithaca.

Being local, we visit Trimmers often. They really have the best ice cream around. They aim to quickly serve you, though sometimes there is a line, which disappears quickly. Their prices are very reasonable and their sundaes are to die for. Great ice cream.

I love to stop in here for either a cone or one of those "frosty" drinks (with candies mixed in). They have many choices of ice cream, some food and beverages. Their ice cream is delicious! You may have to park along the road after a school function--lots of families will be present.

Ice cream stand at the North end of T-burg. Good choice when you need a break.
