“Take a licking for a lick”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Far too expensive. Almost $5 for a single scoop. Buy a litre at the grocery and site in the park. Add expensive parking and Niagara-on-the-Lake is an expensive tourist trap.

“Cute little ice cream shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Lots of flavors to choose from -- including classics, fruit flavors, and mash-ups! We visited for the long weekend and the shop was bustling with ice cream eaters. The t-shirts are hilarious. We tried four different flavors and enjoyed them all. The servers were kind and were happy to let us sample. A very nice treat!

“Delicious Ice Cream with Unique Flavours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

The first time I went to Cows was in Prince Edward Island when I was a teenager. Now a trip to NOTL isn't complete without stopping at Cows for a cone filled with delicious cow-pun themed ice cream. They also let you taste the different flavours if you ask, which I highly recommend doing since there are so many to choose from. There are places to sit outside but only a couple benches along the sidewalk that might all be full on a hot summer day. It's also quite pricey, I paid about 6 bucks for a single scoop in a fancy cone. Its worth the money if you are prepared to spend it!

“Great Ice cream, Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

I'm surprised this place doesn't have more reviews. It's always packed with happy customers. Everything in their store has something to do with cows, whether it's the names of their ice cream flavors or their hilarious merchandise that is a mashup of pop-culture references combined with cow puns. You can find some an Insteergram t-shirt, or posters for Cow of Duty: Moooodern Warfare. The staff here is always very friendly, and I have been back multiple times. On our most recent visit the staff member helping us had been there for 5 years she said, and knew everything you could imagine about the ice cream. It was pretty impressive. The have very interesting flavors that are all great. For those from a bit further north in Ontario, I would compare the quality of their ice cream to the likes of Kawartha. I've tried Cow's Mint Chocolate Chip as well as all 3 of their flavors containing peanut butter cups. All have been amazing. Another plus is that their cones are always very fresh.

With the abundance of great ice cream shops on the strip it's difficult to choose, but you won't be disappointed if you go to Cow's.
