You not officially Spartan before trying this place. They have good ice cream selection. Also they have good grilled cheese sandwich. On Mondays you get with the sandwich tomato soup for free(but the soup is okay, I take it as it's free but I never order it) Ice cream good quality and quietly in good price. Personally I find it...

The very best ice cream I've ever had. They also have great flavor combinations. Their waffle cones are made fresh daily. Don't let the line discourage you it is well worth the wait and the line moves pretty fast.

Just a fantastic place to buy an ice cream cone or gallon of ice cream to take home. While it is made by students, it is of the highest quality and production is overseen by some of the top "dairy" people in the country!! NOTE: MSU started as an agricultural school !! The ice cream in excellent and they offer... More

Excellent selection and quality of ice cream, both loose packed/cones and cups & pre-packed 1/2 gallons, as well as cheeses. All of which are produced by MSU. Only negative is parking which may be a problem at times & is not free (metered parking).

It's nothing fancy, I wouldn't return. Selection is very limited. If you want an ice cream experience, this isn't it.

The ice cream is the best you've ever had and the cheeses,especially the smoked ones are in a class by themselves. A must for visitors to take a bunch of cheese home. Locals in the know get all their dairy here.

I love the Msu dairy store for my on the go shake. Only get the shakes since I am usually busy and get the two scoops of chocolate with a scoop of either mint or double fudge fake. I don't care for cheese, but my family loves cheese and thinks Msu had pretty good cheese. When it's lunch time I... More

This place is classic old school MSU. Great ice cream that's made in house with big ten themed add ins. It's fabulous place to take old and young alike. It's a must do for anyone visiting the capitol area of Michigan.

The ice cream is wonderful. Totally worth the wait in line. (Everyone knows this is the place to go.) Also, check out the viewing room upstairs. You can see the ice cream being made.

Really good ice cream. Have tried several flavors and love them all. They also sell cheese made at the college which is also very good.
