“Delicious Ice Cream for a Hot Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were given four ice cream vouchers by friends, and went to try this place. The store is always packed with people, on some days there were long line-ups for ice cream. The cones were delicious! Probably full of calories! The other side of the store sells very funny cow t-shirts that are parodies of well-known movies and funny situations.

“Fun Ice Cream Shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Be sure to stop in to Cows Ice Cream in Banff. The ice cream is great, and the kids loved looking at all the cow themed items, especially the shirts.

“Fun Place for premium ice cream in unique flavor combinations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We had never heard of Cows before this visit to Banff. Place was fun, ice cream was in unique flavor combos. One suggestion, creative names of the ice cream on the overhead board, do not really reflect what is in the flavor. To discover that requires bucking the line and the crowd to rear\dthe small description cards above each container. This seems to slow the line. But it did not keep us from visiting twice over a four night stay
