“Drives me Nuts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Went here with my nephew and he loves the darn place, and even though -25C he had to have an ice cream from here. Mooiegooie (sp) or some darn flavour. Very clean, nice friendly staff and lots of marketing material here to take home.

“Great ice-cream and amusing t-shirts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

The ice-cream here is amazing! More options in the summer months, but still a must visit in Banff. The t-shirts all have a cow/farm theme to them, but are spin-offs of all things popular... such as Cowdashians or Dr Moo. Stock is always changing as they keep up with trends, check out the wall of all the icons over the past!

“Great ice cream - funny shirts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

The ice cream is delicious and there are lots of varieties. Employees are very friendly. Right in the center of downtown, so it's convenient to walk to. Check out the shop on the other side of their store - the shirts are really funny/cute! :)

“Good Ice Cream - interesting store”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Visited this outlet several times during my 3 days in Banff. Each time I tried a different flavor and enjoyed each one. Some funny items with cute sayings on t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc. My wife was in the store down the street eating the "beaver tails" that are also a popular treat in Banff.

“Queues say it all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Having been to the shop in Whistler we headed straight in as soon as we saw this one and were not disappointed.The queues to get served can be a bit on the long side but they are there for a reason - it's worth the wait. Quite expensive but very good. Spoil yourself!!
