My family and I have been there several times. The kids really enjoy it. It is a little expensive for Ice cream and they don't always have the flavors you would like, but the Ice cream is good.

I took some motorcycle friends up to the Cow Cafe for ice cream. We also had a late lunch as well. This is a great place for some "Gooey Cow Poo-ye" Ice Cream. We had a good time looking at how they make ice cream and seeing all the COWS.

Not only great Ice Cream, they also sell sandwiches and such and although I only go for the Ice Cream I see lot's of folks with the food and smiles on their faces. Of course the train running along the ceiling and the moving cow in the window helos also. Plus a large play room in back for kids.

Had the peanut udder milkshake, and two cones. Everyone loved their choice. Will be vack, for sure. Atmosphere was fun, cow themed. Only had ice cream this time, but menu looked good, too.

This cow themed little ice cream shop is the perfect place to stop on a hot day and have a nice cold ice cream ! There is many varieties for you to choose from, strawberry cheesecake is my favorite. Great place for the kids with the play area in the back.

This cute little restaurant has a nice area in the rear that has kept my grandkids happy for a long time now. It is a barn scene, cute as can be, with stackable plastic ice cream cones and a nice play area. The entire decor is cow based and quite charming. The sandwiches here are very tasty as is the...

This place is fun and delicious. From decor to gift items. The kids did not want to leave, especially when they noticed the cow play area in the back. You can even eat back there. Delightful cafe!

This place is a Holstein heaven. Everything cow from the decorations, to the gifts to even the menu items names. They make their own ice cream in house which is very good and they have some fun and creative flavors. Gooey Cow Phooey anyone?
