The is THE place for ice cream in Northampton, nay, the whole pioneer valley. The New York Times even said so. Steve Herrell has made good by dishing up all his own creations of delicious for at least 20 years. On a recent saturday I had to wait 30 minutes in a line snaking out the door people were so dedicated.
There is only one person I've met that does like the creamy, lovely, concoctions of dairy (ginger, pumpkin, burnt sugar n' butter!), that's my boyfriend. Maybe he's a dud, but this place isn't. Get there if you can and enjoy your catch on the hill opposite or strolling down main.
