While having a slice of pizza on the waterfront walk and talking with a family from Montreal we were encouraged to stop and get some ice cream from Cow's. They are apparently famous in Nova Scotia. Not ones to ignore the opportunity to get an ice cream and being pretty sure it would be great we naturally indulged ourselves and had a dish. probably the best ice cream we had while in Canada. In particular the chocolate! Two vices in one and worth every calorie. Just had to walk it off on the waterfront and at the Maritime museum.

Delicious and Creative Homemade Ice Cream
Sep 2019
My two favorite foods are ice cream and pizza. So, when a local told me about "Cow's" and how great it was, I had to try some myself.

Of course you cannot be in Canada and not try the maple. It was sweet and oh so good but the one flavor that stole my heart was the "cowconut". I love everything about coconut and this flavor did not disappoint. YUM!! The homemade waffle cones are done up fresh and you are not charged extra for them, as opposed to having your ice cream in a cup.

So glad we took a break and stopped at Cow's!

Amazing ice cream
Aug 2019 • Couples
We stopped for Cow's Ice Cream while in Halifax located beside our hotel. We loved this location because you could enjoy your ice cream while watching the boats in the harbour. Cow's has so many great flavours of ice cream and a great waffle cone. Its always fun to check out the lastest t shirt parodies.

It is more about the hype than about the ice cream
Aug 2019
Coming from Europe, I prefer quality Italian ice cream. Cow's is more about creamy and creative ice cream flavors and combinations... and fun colors. The waffles taste good but are a bit too sweet in our point of view. Also, the price per scoop is quite steep. That said - Cow's makes for a nice stop at the Historic Properties. Expect a long queue ;-)

Ice cream here is great and purely Canadian. Lots of gift ware, clothes and keepsakes too. Long line up but it moved surprisingly fast. Efficient service. Perfect for families and ice cream lovers.

Good selection
Aug 2019
There is lots of flavours to choose from, however the flavour board is hard to read from the line so the line appears longer than it actually is because people choose their flavours as they are ordering. Would recommend choosing ahead of time.

Creamy and delicious!
Aug 2019 • Couples
Tried the Gooey Mooey in a chocolate dipped waffle cone. The ice cream was creamy and the flavors were very good. The cone was fresh, thick, and delicious. We would recommend this sweet treat to our followers!

Fun cows and good ice cream
Aug 2019
There are two locations on the boardwalk. One is a walk up that just serves ice cream and the other has various silly cow themed items for sale and a large dairy cow statue outside. If you like that sort of stuff (we do), you'll enjoy the store. If you don't, then just go to the walk up further down. Some of the ice cream flavor names and silly and cow themed life fluff'n'udder. Had two scoops. The maple was good but the chocolate one wasn't the best. But after walking around the boardwalk on a sunny day for a couple of hours, the ice cream was what we needed.

Skip this nothing special ...

When your website shows some delicious sounding flavors - you should have them available especially when you are ONLY opened seasonally. We arrived around 9pm on a Monday night (yup Monday) and they ONLY had 6 flavors - thank goodness one of them was chocolate - the fresh waffle cones were a bonus but still disappointed with selections. The staff (and I get it, are kids) but a friendly " hello, how's your evening?" sets the right tone before they ask "what flavor?". The ice cream was ok - great location.

Good ice cream. Pricy ice cream. Lots of add on to drive the price up even higher. Good harbour front location. The building needs some sprucing up.
