Although I only visit occasionally, I have never been disappointed. The quality is always good, and the flavors varied. There's a nice wide porch out front to enjoy your treats in nicer weather. I only wish their hours were a bit later, as my opportunities...More

Had heard this was amazing ice cream and I was not disappointed. It was rich, creamy, and delicious! Tasted many of the flavors and would have wanted them all. The chocolate, strawberry, smores, and purple cow were great. Can't wait to go back!

We are frequent customers of the Purple Cow; the ice cream is always good and the service friendly and efficient. It offers both indoor and outdoor eating options; or they package it nicely if you need to take the order home.

This is delicious ice cream and an awesome environment. You are sure to run into someone you know while at this ice cream joint. The ice cream is homemade and super tasty!! It is evidently delicious by the constant young crowd.

Although having the standard selections they did have a few others but were out of a few as well. Also watch the ice crystals in the ice cream which is from temperature change.

Loved this place! The black raspberry ice cream was the best I've ever had. The staff was friendly and helpful as we were from out of town and asking questions about the area. I highly recommend!
