Local books made it sound like this was a restaurant. Yes, they serve some food but it's mainly an ice cream shop. We left and went to the Baker's Kitchen for dinner then returned for ice cream It was yummy though!

This is your typical ice cream shop in your local town but with an excellent theme and convenient location for those in downtown. Wide selection of flavors and plenty of seating. Great for kids or a couple that wants to walk around downtown with a bowl/cone of ice cream.

Really special place for young and old alike. Back play room for kids with tables for adults. All ice cream made on site every day. Good sandwiches, a few salads, and a few blue plates. Kids menu can't be beat.

Cute decor. Ice cream was really good! We did not have our children with us, but I am sure they would have enjoyed the play area.

Stopped in the Cow Cafe on a drizzly rainy day. The place was bright with perhaps 12 tables. Folks sitting around having coffee, reading. or doing business on their laptops. Coffee was good would have rather had ice cream but the weather did not permit it. In reading the menu they had sandwiches that sounded wonderful. We look forward to making this one of our stops next time we are in town.
