“Delicious but pricey”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

The ice cream here was delicious. It is high priced, and worth it for a treat.
Service could be improved, a bit of organization and management on the line would help.
Much better than most, and worth a try.

“Cool flavors”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We went here quick after supper one night and holy do they have some funky kinds of ice cream, the only problem is deciding which flavor to get! And the prices aren't that bad either!!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

The ice cream is delicious. There are a bunch of unique flavors to try. Yes, the line will probably be long. Yes, it is expensive. Most likely, you are on vacation if you are visiting this spot....so does it really matter when the ice cream is awesome?

“Super Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We had heard about Cows from friends in PEI. Now we know why this is one of the reasons that leaving PEI was so hard! The ice cream is really some of the best we have ever tasted. Really flavorful, rich, and unusual combinations of flavors. I especially liked the multi berry PEI one (can't remember the name), the mint with dark chocolate, and one of the chocolates with nuts. One thing we found is that we get more ice cream in the cups than in the cones, so you might try that if both quality and quantity are your thing.

“Great Ice cream”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

If you are looking for great ice cream then this is the place. The lineups are long, but it doesn't take them long to get through it. This is a must stop for me everytime I am in Banff.
