Very good ice cream. We couldn't see how it was made on Sunday but could buy some. Seating was limited and it is a popular spot but the service is fast and efficient. I would return to this store.

The MSU Dairy Store was a wonderful experience. We watched the staff making cheese and enjoyed ice cream at the store and bought cheese that was delicious. Top notch operation!

Wide variety of ice cream, cones, fresh cheeses, and gallons of ice cream to go. Generally busy, but the line moves quickly and the staff is great!

They produce everything fresh on their campus. Loved every single flavor on the rack. The cheese is good too. I tried the spartan green mix and sea salt Carmel. Must visit if you are around.

Great staff. Quickly served. Ice cream is incredibly creamy. Late in the evening so the tables weren't clean but the overall atmosphere was great. GO MSU.

The MSU Dairy Store is on the MSU campus. They have limited parking, but it’s worth finding because the ice cream is fantastic. They must have over 20 flavors and their servings are generous. It is a must do stop.
