Fantastic ice cream at the place that invented the Ice Cream Sundae! Lot's of superb flavors and very high quality ice cream make this a place to visit at all times of the day. A mandatory stop for all Ithaca visitors!

This ice cream place is popular! Parking can be quite the hassle and the line was really, really long but it still took only 20 minutes. The staff seemed very efficient and were constantly keeping things moving. I ordered the Oh my goodness, a sundae with a chocolate cupcake base-the flavors: salted caramel, a sweet salty mix and ???, a coffee ice cream with espresso/mocha swirl. Both were delicious. I had to dig in to find the cupcake underneath but wow that was delicious too. Loved everything about it, wished we lived closer to try more flavors.

The legend goes that the ice cream sundae was invented in Ithaca....and while it was not invented at Purity they are doing a great job continuing the legacy!!

Specifically if it's a warm summer night, you'll find a line at Purity but it's well worth the wait - which doesn't take long anyways, there's lots of people working. They have fantastic ice cream and delicious sweet treats. My personal favorite is the cupcake and ice cream duo, they warm up the (un-frosted) cupcake and put the ice cream sundae on top... yum!

They are currently closed at this location for renovations, haven't seen a timeline for completion but I hope it's soon and before summer! Can't wait to see what it looks like.

Tried to stop by on a visit to Cornell and found it under construction. Maybe next time. Check the web site for updates.
