Located on the Mitchell College Campus, Michaels offer a wide variety of hard ice cream and related items. I ordered a single scoop and received about 3. Not sure of their hours.

very large selection of ice creams, fairly affordable. Wish they had more consistent hours and open more in the off season.

Stopped in after a ball game at Mitchell college. Workers were really friendly and great to deal with. Lots of choices. Ice cream was above average for sure.

I love going to Michaels Dairy and enjoying a delicious waffle cone. It's in such a relaxing area and you can sit at one of the many picnic tables or in the gazebo. I recommend this to all family's looking for a sweet treat.

In the summer we often go there to get their fabulous ice cream! Mitchell College Students run the dairy & do the serving!
