Every time except once I've had delicious ice cream desserts here. The chocolate chip sundae is the only disappointing dish I've had. The cookie was burnt on the bottom and I couldn't even eat it. This was the first time I had it here, so...More

Hi pegsmith59. Thanks for stopping often at Purity! Sorry about the overdone cookie. We scratch bake all of them and it is, unfortunately, possible for one to escape our notice with a burned bottom... Always feel free to bring it back to the counter for...More

Listen, I am from Texas where Blue Bell Ice Cream is king. This place gives them a run for their money. It was that good. They also have some unique offerings, like a mint chocolate chip ice cream shake with coffee.

Our family stops here whenever we pass through Ithaca. We stop even when we are not hungry. It's too good to pass up. One thing we look forward to each Christmas season is the Egg Nog. It has the right amount of nutmeg. It's creamy...More

Our family of 5 stopped here twice while visiting the area. The ice cream was delicious. Our favorite flavors were chocolate raspberry truffle, chocolate covered strawberry, and blueberry cheesecake muffin.

I often eat lunch here with my girlfriend and have never been disappointed. Now they offer breakfast sandwiches as well! Their sundaes are the best.

Be sure to put Purity on your list for a yummy brunch! It is casual and homey inside and the food is sooooo good! Try the potato pancakes or lemon pancakes!

Delicious ice-cream and desserts! The apple crisp was delicious and the strawberry rhubarb pie had the perfect tartness.

Hi jjahnols, Glad you are digging the baked goods. True story: I went to visit my son at school last weekend and all he wanted me to bring was a (pan of) apple crisp. No ice cream...just the apple crisp! Cheers, Bruce

Hi jennie8614! Thanks for the kind words. Ah....Bittersweet. A true Purity original. Those impossibly thin slivers of bittersweet chocolate happen when the stream of melted chocolate hits the cold stream of ice cream as it heads into the freezing process. The chocolate then "shatters" and...More
