This tiny little ice cream shop is bustling! They have all the sweet treats you want: cones, dip-cones, sundaes, milkshakes and more. So glad we stopped in and the kids loved it.

Its the perfect ice cream parlor , you experimenting old time traditional ice cream parlor with up dated flavor, candies and nut toppings. The small tables with crayons for all ages. Elsie the cow is a classic trade mark to represent ice cream.

The vibe is an old-fashioned ice cream parlor with very friendly teenage staff. My young granddaughter appreciated the small tables and chairs set up with colors and coloring pages while we waited for our orders to be taken. We easily shared a "one scoop" cup of birthday cake ice cream with whipped cream and 2 cherries between 2 people. The... More

This is a place that you remember every town had one when we were kids. The great thing about this place is that it is still open after serving many generations of ice cream lovers. The quality and selection of flavors can't be beat. There was sugar free vanila for my wife who is pre diabetic, mint chocolate chip in... More

What is not to love about this place!! My husband and I both had amazing chocolate malts. Very creamy and delicious. We also ordered a chili cheese dog and chili cheese nachos. Everything was so good. Love the charm and history of the place. Everything was clean and the staff was very friendly. We will be back in the area... More

Like a step back in time to a soda shop from yesteryear. Shakes and sundaes made the old fashion way. Fun place!!!

Love to stop here for ice cream. I always buy some of their muffins or scones to eat for breakfast the next day.

If you visited a Borden's ice cream shop decades ago, you will feel at home at this Lafayette landmark. The servers are friendly, they know what they are doing, and the shakes, malts, and sundaes are perfect. A most family friendly place and a beautifully preserved gem.

This is a place for a date or group of friends because you are also paying for the quaint place and its history. I found the prices bit too much for me. After I had my ice cream, I couldn't afford more (yes, I am a pig when it is good stuff) so I went to McDonalds and had a... More
