While this charming little downtown shop offers lunch items, we were attracted to the homemade ice cream with varied flavors to choose from. We enjoyed the praline pecan and mint chocolate chip and liked the fact that they put the hot fudge on first so it doesn't drip!

Great ice cream and not pricey but the girl behind the counter I'd have to say was not the brightest bulb in the box asked for sugar cone instead if saying we don't have those she put it in a regular cone when we asked her about it she looked dazed and confused really do u know the difference?

Every time I go into the Cow Cafe, I get excited about the homemade ice cream flavors. It is absolutely delicious and for those of you don't like places that employ high school students, don't worry about that here. The teenagers that work here are quick and efficient and very friendly. Be sure to tip them because the super tasty homemade ice cream won't cost you but a couple dollars and they like to make the scoops as big as possible!

Stopped in with the family for ice cream and ended up waiting in line for 30 minutes. Unreal. Staff behind the counter was moving at a snails pace and didn't bother to let anyone know that there were actually 2 lines. Horrible customer service and will certainly not be returning to the "Boo" Cafe.
