I don't think you can beat there ice cream for quality or verity anywhere. No trip to state college would be complete with out going here. When my father come to town he has to go here a couple of times

We've visited Berkey several times while dropping off students at Penn State. It never fails to exceed expectations! Simply some of the best ice cream we've ever had, anywhere. Creamy, great flavors, and big portions! This place is a treasure and we'll be back often.

This is a must stop if you are nearby. The size of the coups is off the chart. Taste is great. There is inside and outside seating areas. I am sure your kids any age will enjoy the varieties.

We stopped by the Berkey Creamery after hearing for years how good it was. We happened to be passing through State College on a Tuesday around noon (August) and it seemed like a good place to take a break after a few hours of driving....More

Great college place with locally produced ice cream. Very clean and friendly student staff. Inside and outside seating. I like the ice cream, but am spoiled because I lived where I had Abbotts frozen custard. However, the thing I like the most about Berkey is...More

I think the cones were around $3.50 or $4.00. They are one size only, huge! You can get it in a dish also. Worth it.
