The ice cream at the penguin is so good! We stopped twice while in Cooperstown and I got the banana and the blackberry ice creams. Unbelievably fresh and creamy, I highly recommend stopping!

We visited Penquin Ice Cream several times during our stay in Cooperstown. Though it seemed busy each time we stopped, service was quick and we enjoyed the ice cream. It was a fun treat after a long day of watching baseball.
