Ice cream is ok but cost and size of portions makes this place a downer. Shakes are small and sundaes are small, and one small scoop is, yes you guessed it... small! Cost for one scoop, and a sundae and a shake = over $18 = yikes! Amazes me to spend about $5 for one scoop of ice cream. Ben... More

Wonderfully creative flavors (if you haven't tried the Mission Fig, you haven't had great ice cream) along with great, creamy standards.

Great ice cream. We tried a variety of flavours. The raspberry was great, as was the mudslide and caramel. Personally the chocolate didn't do it for me but it was popular with the kids. The coffee was also worth a try.

They have so many great choices here - but I love Mexicali chocolate and the ginger ice cream. And don't forget to have a cappuccino or espresso.

Wide and creative variety of ice cream - creamy and chewy. You must try it! I loved the mocha almond and the mission fig.

A visit to Great Barrington is never complete without a visit to SoCo. The ice cream here is always delicious and locally made. I love it so much I even visit in the winter time. My favorite is the cookies and cream, however they always have a wide range of interesting flavors such as lemon poppy!

Thrilled to find SoCo when we haad a hankering for ice cream on a Sunday evening. Staff was very knowledgeable, and proud, of their flavors and offerings. Even got my teen to try flavors he never would have chosen on his own. Prices comparable to what we are used to in D.C. Area but quality was above average.

Justly famous, especially the salted caramel flavor. Worth breaking your diet for. Almost as good as the US's best ice creamery in Santa Barbara, CA.

I sampled this amazing ice cream last night, and LOVED it. I heard that they were selling it in Fairway's and Whole Foods but eventually stopped. I'm sad that this is the only place to taste this wonderful ice cream. The expresso cookie -- ahhh!!!

Great place to go for homemade creamy ice cream. Always fresh ice cream and a variety of flavors. Try a shake or sundae. Great place for kids, or to take the family out. The place can get crowded on weekends and in the summer. Park on Main St., or at the end of Railroad St.parking lot and walk over. Staff... More
