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.

Summer hours are 7:30am-6:00pm Monday through Friday, and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5:00, but check the specific hours on this page for any changes.



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, but stop in 48 hours in advance to order as many as you'd like. Or check out our Ice Cream Social offerings.
