“Excellent Ice-Cream!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

So, if you've read some of my other reviews you know that my hubby & I almost always try out the local ice-cream shops wherever we go. Guess you could say that ice-cream is my vice! Anyway, Cows ranks right up there in the top 5. We ended up going here 3 days out of four on our trip to Banff. I love coffee ice-cream and their Espresso with fudge was marvelous! My hubby really enjoyed the different flavors he tried. Staff was friendly and gladly gave you samples. Definitely worth a stop.

“Great ice cream, great puns”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I first went to Cows in PEI in 92 and the ice cream and the pins are as good as ever. Don Cherry was very good tonight and we'll be back tomorrow for more plus T shirts maybe!

“Banff Cow shop”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Great ice cream with some different flavours and proper - made on site - waffle cones. Two scoops are enough for lunch!
