This is the best place for ice cream or coug gold cheese. Down side is that you have to pay for parking. It is busy most of the time and only open during the week

A trip to Pullman would not be complete without a visit to Ferdinand's! They have a wide selection and the ice cream is just delicious. This was our second visit and it was as good as I remembered. They have other menu items but I'm there for ice cream!

No trip to WSU Pullman would be complete without indulging in this creamy, rich local ice cream. The chocolate was Absolutely divine!

This place is the bomb! You have never had better ice cream or cheese.... These foods are made on site as WSU is well known (world renowned) for it's dairy products. They provide yours to the community that show and explain the whole process of making the cheese and the ice cream. It is well worth your time to visit!

We stopped for an early afternoon dish of ice cream at Ferdinand's. There are a few parking spaces in front and we were able to snag the last one; otherwise I'm not sure where someone would park. We found the ice cream to be very rich and could not finish our bowl of two scoops...which was so reasonably priced as... More

Great ice cream and cheap ice cream prices. Their famous cheese is delicious but not as budget friendly. Must stop when in Pullman. On game days be prepared for a wait.

Stop in on game day for world class Cougar Gold cheese! Much better prices and variety than Costco or grocery stores. Delicious ice cream too.

Flavors are great, not exotic like some big city shops like Salt and Straw in Portland. But what they do they do very well. Maybe the best I've ever had. Huge scoops for less than going to a bland soft serve place. It's a hidden gem. The cheese is outstanding as well. Can't beat Ferdinand's.

Cougar Gold Cheese is world famous, and Ferdinand's makes other varieties of cheese too. You can often watch them making the cheese. And, don't forget to try their delicious ice cream! Their ice cream has won national awards.

The ice cream is amazingly crazy! I have had the ice cream in a cone and it is perfect. The shakes are good but the malt my daughter had was horrible....I think they need to stick to a recipe. The malt came out with water consistency and was undrinkable. I don't know how they could of even handed it to... More
