The best place for ice cream in the area. They make a variety of flavors for both cheese and ice cream in this facility. When you patronize this place, you are supporting WSU's Food and Science department. It is nice to see college kids learn customer service and develop work ethics. We try to make a special trip here on... More

Fresh ice cream made by WSU students! And fresh cheese too! Great flavors and fun place to go. Parking is metered so bring coins, and hours are limited so be sure to check before driving over.

The best ice cream, EVER! Fresh Cougar Gild made on campus and fresh cheese curds. Low prices, great for all ages. Upstairs you can watch it being made and a fun video about the process.

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

Thank you for your excellent review of Ferdinand's! We strive to make all visits an enjoyable experience! As a WSU entity, parking is unfortunately at a premium and is hard to come by almost everywhere on campus. If the university did not charge for parking at Ferdinand's, all the parking would be taken up by students during the day. Thank... More

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.
