“Good Ice Cream”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The Cow Cafe was a nice afternoon treat for ice cream. They were rather busy when we came in but it didn't take long to get seved. The ice cream is mixed there but not sure if made there. They have a window to watch and they have someone who uses a machine to get ice cream out of and they mix in the ingredients (cookies fruit ect) to make the type at that time. The only thing that was a little rude I quess while we were there is they emptied the tip jar and it seemed that they were arguing over who owed who what. I could have done with out that.

Good s'cream, but can get busy in warm weather. Also sells drinks and other snacks, but nothing special on that menu.

“Enjoyable!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

My wife loves coming here. It is very inviting and the ice cream is unforgettable! The down-side is that it is a little pricey but they do give you a lot for your money. I do recommend this place for family fun!

“An Interesting Place To Eat”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We stopped in Cow Cafe while walking around the downtown area. It is an interesting little shop with ice cream and sandwiches. The staff was friendly and the cow decor gives the place a fun look.

“Ice Cream @ Cow Paraphernalia”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Yummy ice cream! And lots of cow items in ceramic and wood. A play area in the back for kids. An entertaining singing cow---definitely a place for kids--of all ages.
