Banana split to die for

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... read more

Stopped on way downtown. Super sundaes, very friendly staff, fast service and easy parking. Highly recommend. There's always room for Bordens.

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.
