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?

This was my first visit to Borden's since before graduating from USL in 91. It hadn't changed much so it brought back some good memories. Service was good and the Gold Brick sundae hit the spot.

Visited Bordens because of the glowing reviews online and overall I was a little disappointed with the visit. The ice cream was great, but they were understaffed and the staff that was there seemed very stressed. Angry customers in line didnt help the issue, but the employees reactions were on the rude side. I wouldnt call this an employee issue,... More

Enjoy a generous portion of wonderful ice cream (I recommend the praline pecan!) in a true ice cream soda shop; not a replica! Worth a stop any day.

I was looking for a place for lunch and found this gem on TripAdvisor. However, their menu is mostly dessert favorites - I think only hot dogs and chili were other items on the menu. Go to one block down to Cedar Grocery for food then go to Borden's for dessert in clean vintage setting

Since I was in Lafayette on business my sister told me to go eat ice cream here since this is the last Borden's ice cream shop in the country. This shop is a throw back to a 50's ice cream soda shop. We had a hot fudge sundae and a cone of banana nut ice cream. Maybe my hot fudge... More
