Everyone goes for the ice cream... I got the potato salad and loved it! Reminds me of the kind my mother used to make. I can not replicate it. Friendly people and quick service.

We LOVED this place. It is so fun to be in the cafe with all of the decor. We got a quick, cheap, and tasty meal (cuban sandwich and grilled cheese) and followed this up with two waffles cones filled with the best ice cream....More

The overall menu looked interesting, but we went for the ice cream. Very tasty — creamy but chock full of added ingredients (Heath Bar Crunch was exceptional)

My kids had lunch here after a long drive into town. Prices were good, so was the food. My only complaint is that it was slightly crowded, however the service was spot on to be busy.

Came here for some late night ice cream with my wife and it was delicious! Great place and has several sandwich / lunch platters on the menu as well. Very family friendly atmosphere that is entirely "cow" themed.
