Ice cream is very good but expensive. Enjoyed looking at all their cow themed merchandise. Had been to Cows in PEI so wanted to have have more of their ice cream.

Sorry, but I compare this shop to Ivanacone in Lincoln, NE, USA, and it is a weak second.
Ice cream is good. But shop is laid out to sell stuff more than ice cream, such that even if there was sufficient staff (we were in twice and staffing marginal both times), it would be difficult to serve more efficiently.
Ice cream selections are good, but not truly creative. Do be prepared for a cost that rivals Ben and Jerry's in major airports.
Most of all, The waffle cones are not being made fresh, which makes all the difference in the world-- the smell alone would transform the experience.

This place is fun. Lots of decorations and small gift-type items with cow related fun sayings inside their store in addition to really good ice cream.
The only knock I would give this place probably should come from the poor, lonely, guy who was working a busy Saturday afternoon all by himself. He really needed some help to move the line (which was substantial). He handled it all with a smile, but the wait really could've been shorter. Nonetheless, the product here is tasty and high quality.

Best Cow's in the fleet. We go there every time. Sport the shirts, and pig out on the ice cream. The difference at this is the people. Doing great ladies!

Delicious ice-cream. The flavours were all so tempting, it was difficult to choose one. As a family of four we decided to share 4 different flavours. Gooey Mooey is definitely recommended, as was the brownie explosion. Quite pricey, but you pay for what you get.
