Blue Ice Cream

First time to Cedar Crest and it was the best. Can't say what exactly is the flavor of Blue ice cream but I liked it. The coconut was definitely coconut. My husband had Irish Coffee and our grandson had Superman. It was multi colored and he ended up with a blue tongue and mouth but he loved it... read more

The big cow is a Manitowoc icon and a popular tourist draw. As such, it is a novelty draw. This is a Cedar Crest manufacturing facility, which sells its product at the attached ice cream parlor. However, Cedar Crest is merely average ice cream. This is worth a drive-by, but continue north across the river and get your ice cream... More

Great ice cream, 20+ flavors to pick from. Kids love seeing and playing around the giant cow. A great place to visit on a hot summer day.

If you are going through Manitowoc YOU MUST STOP AT THE CEDAR CREST DIARY! This is the best ice cream in Wisconsin at great prices for the public. You can buy any size from a single cone to 5 gallon bucket of your favorite flavor. We go here every week or so to get our fix and when we go... More

We always take visitors to the ice cream parlor on a warm day. Have to get pictures taken in front of the cow, a Manitowoc landmark, and then stop for an ice cream cone. Can't be beat!

It's always a treat for me to stop and indulge in a cone--which is gigantic actually. They just got an international award for their Zanzibar Dark Chocolate. Also has great frozen yogurt. Nice ice cream parlor plus the Big Cow outside waiting for a selfie. You can't go wrong.

The VRBO recommended we stop here. Kiddie cone was just right. The royal strawberry sundae was delicious. We also tried praline, mint and chocolate , peanut butter and elephant track. All excellent !

The ice cream is amazing! My favorite ice creams are pirate's booty and play dough. I love that there are big chunks of toppings in the ice cream. I wish the place was larger because it is always cramped and there are only a handful of tables.

Lots of flavors to choose from and for a very decent price. We had a coupon to use for a sundae and chose pecan caramel. The kids serving the ice cream put so many pecans on it that we had to scrape some off to get at the ice cream! The cow was dressed as an astronaut when we were... More

You cant miss this place it is the one with the huge cow in front. They have many flavors to choose from and the prices are very reasonable. I had a banana split and it was great. My wife had a couple scoops in a cup. I especially liked the coconut and root beer flavors. I know that sounds a... More
