The Best Ice Cream Spot in Pittsford

Need a study break? One of my favorite ice cream places near campus is Pittsford Farms Dairy.

They are located in the heart of Pittsford on North Main Street right near the canal. Pittsford Dairy was established in the late 1800s and continues to be a family owned business, but it wasn’t until 2012 that they opened up their bakery and ice cream parlor.  Not only does Pittsford Dairy serve creative flavors of ice cream but they also produce milk, chocolate milk, eggnog, fresh butter, and baked goodies daily. So if you are not in the mood for ice cream, there is always something to enjoy.

Pittsford Dairy offers a variety of homemade ice cream in multiple sizes and styles that fits everyone’s needs.  Whether you decide to get  signature hard serve, soft serve, or a sundae, you will not be disappointed. Being such a well-known place to get ice cream, it can get pretty busy at times. (Do not let the long line scare you away, it is definitely worth the wait.)

Pittsford Dairy has the nicest staff. They are polite and willing to give you the best experience. They always allow you to sample any flavor you want beforehand to make sure it is the one you want. Once you have found your ice cream treat, there are multiple spots where you can sit and eat. You can enjoy your ice cream treat with friends and family inside at one of the numerous tables offered, or take it outside and walk the scenic land they have. I always prefer to walk down to the canal with my ice cream – especially when it is a nice, sunny day out and I’m with friends.

Pittsford Dairy is open 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday, except for special holidays and some seasonal hours.
