Cornell Dairy Bar

In the beautifully renovated Stocking Hall on the east end of Tower Road, the Cornell Dairy Bar is a great place for breakfast, lunch, coffee, or a sweet treat. We offer Cornell Dairy ice cream, milk, yogurt, pudding, and Big Red Cheddar, produced right here at Cornell's very own dairy processing plant. 

The Dairy Bar offers Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters specialty coffees, a mouth-watering array of sandwiches made to order, grab-and-go FreshTake items, and even pints of ice cream to take with you. Please note that our fresh deli counter is open 10:30-4:00 Monday through Friday, and ice cream service begins at 10:30am. FreshTake sandwiches and packaged salads and ice cream items are available in our cooler outside those hours.

The fresh deli counter and made-to-order sandwiches won't be available for the summer so we can offer an extra ice cream station. Fresh deli sandwiches are available during the semester.

Our regular hours vary seasonally, especially weekend hours, so please check the specific hours on this page for updates.



Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters Specialty Coffee, Mighty Leaf Tea, Hot Cocoa, Frozen Lattes and Mochas, Pepsi Beverages, Hot & Cold Sandwiches, Soups, and Grab-n-Go items. Order ice cream cupcakes and ice cream sandwiches for your events 48 hours in advance!

Thanks for understanding if we're temporarily out of a particular flavor, or need to make substitutions. Sometimes people eat a lot of ice cream, and we just run out of something!

Having a party? Handpacked pints and quarts are available, at $5.99/pint and $8.99/quart. Ice cream sandwiches and ice cream cupcakes are always available in limited quantities, want a bunch for a special occasion? Whether you're a parent ordering for your student, or a friend who wants to help a buddy celebrate, you can download and fill in the Dairy Bar's ice cream sandwich order form, and we'll do the rest.
