Great charm

Old time ice cream shop! It's the location and atmosphere that makes the whole place! So great! You can also have coffee and other things besides ice cream.

We love to stop here after a movie and have an ice cream cone with the kids. We like the old Diner style.

Friendly staff, fabulous real ice cream, shakes, sundaes, you name it. Sit at the bar, sit at a table, sit outside - or get it to go.

It is an old institution in Lafayette and hasn't changed much. The best ice cream around but the best of the best is the banana split with walnuts. I have been going to this sweet piece of heaven for a long time. It was a tradition to go every Sunday after church and enjoy the banana split royal while sitting... More

Borden's is about 5 blocks from the ULL campus and is the last remaining ice cream shop for Borden's. The selection was good, the ice cream and cones were great and the service was quick. This deserves to be one of your stops in Lafayette.

Is there any better way to end an evening, with ice cream. Generous portions and fair price and tasty favors. When can I come back?
