Top 25 Creemee Stands around the Champlain Valley


Ah, the creemee. A truly wonderful Vermont-made creation that can’t be beat on a hot summer day.  For those not from the 802, the word creemee can be perplexing, but for all of us living in Vermont calling it “soft serve” would be sacrilege.

We polled our team and put together a list of the top 25 places to grab the perfect creemee around the Champlain Valley and surrounding areas.

Enjoy your creemee while taking in the beautiful view of Lake Champlain and the waterfront. This spot can get super busy in the summer, but the line tends to move quickly.

2. Bagel Cafe– Burlington

This gem, tucked into the New North End of Burlington, is great for families with their kid-size creemees at a great price. Their creemee window stays open until 9pm.

3. Al’s French Frys– South Burlington

Enjoy a delicious creemee while the kids play on the playground in the back.

4. Village Scoop– Colchester

Located in Colchester, this local favorite is the perfect spot to grab a creemee or the more traditional ice cream cone option.

5. Rocky’s– Essex Junction

Rocky’s is super convenient for those living in the Essex Junction/Essex area and is a great place to go for pizza and a creemee; a great combination! They also have a baby size option which is great for the littles.

6. Sweet Scoops– Essex Town

When it opened in 2017, Sweet Scoops became popular for its creemees and it’s huge sundaes. They also offer maple nuggets as a topping. According to their Facebook page, these are, “Crushed up maple candy applied to ice cream.” Creemee toppings don’t get much more Vermont-like than that!

7. Ray’s Seafood– Essex Junction

One of the few places in the area that serves creemees year ’round. 

8. Jericho Country Store– Jericho

This store is a Jericho landmark and is fun to visit even without the creemees, but you wouldn’t want to miss them!

This place has been around for years and many native Vermonters have fond memories of heading there as kids. You can grab a whole meal here to go along with your creemee- and you won’t be disappointed!

10. Palmer Lane Maple– Jericho

This spot is a local favorite, but it is also great for those that are gluten-free thanks to their gluten-free cone option! Their maple sprinkles are especially delicious!

If you happen to be down in Addison County, this is a popular creemee stop.

What’s your favorite creemee spot??


  1. #19, you put the wrong business name. The ice cream stand is separate from Pump N Pantry, it’s called Legendairy Maple & Ice cream and it’s the largest dairy bar in VT and in most of New England. Also, dont forget that all of the ice cream is made on-site. 🙂

  2. Two places we didn’t see on the list that we also enjoy are Sweet Clover Market and Ray’s Seafood. The maple creemee at Sweet Clover Market is one of the best I’ve had!

    • Ray’s market dont clean the machines as they should. We bought cones their and loaded with yellow chunks in soft serve, nasty.

  3. I was thinking since it’s just the “champlain valley” I’d be okay not seeing my grandparents snackbar on there… but you went all the way to Williamstown. So.


    MAYNARD’S SNACKBAR in Moretown, VT where you can always find Maple Creemee’s 😉 and of course, the traditional vanilla, chocolate, and twists. Many sundae options and yummy food!

  4. You forgot to mention the Shelburne Country Store! They use real maple syrup, just like Morse Farm. They are fantastic!
