Crowded, noisy, friendly and we loved it all. Oh, yes,
Yummy ice-cream and toppings.. The only thing they could do better is add more tables.

There are 3 ice cream shops within sight of one another at Boothbay Harbor, and Island Cow is hard to beat. The ice cream is incredibly fresh, made by the owner from, if I heard him correctly, his own cattle. The flavors are eclectic and suggestions are made on how to combine them for the optimal flavor explosion. We came late in the day and they had run out of homemade pastries and sandwiches by that time of night, but my guess is that they are special as well.

For reasons I don't understand, there are long lines at the other ice stores, but not at Island Cow. Island Cow is a little out of the way (by about 100 yards) and maybe that accounts for the smaller clientele the night we went there. It certainly isn't because their ice cream isn't amazing.

Ignore the long line down the street. Seek out this new, hole-in-the-wall establishment with creamy, organic ice cream to die for. Highly recommend the Heath bar , but you can't go wrong with any of the 15 or so flavors. Doesn't look like much - but the ice cream is fantastic.

Fantastic organic ice cream. Mocha Chip was wonderful. Coffee Chip was wonderful. Chocolate was wonderful.
The vegetarian sandwich with Avocado, Tomato, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Arugula on Focaccia was fantastic though melting the cheese would have made it even better. I rarely rave about food places, but this one is wonderful.

My wife is a fan of all things bovine. We had to stop in just for the name. We were happy with the ice cream. They have a great selection.
