I have frequented Borden's since my childhood. It has been refurbished since then, reflecting a 50s-style diner. It's a great place to take the whole family, and there is plenty on the menu to please everyone! Coloring pages to keep the kids busy, as well.

We went to Borden's thinking it was a sit down, full service ice cream parlor. It wasn't. You order at the counter, get served in styrofoam and find a place to sit. The ice cream was fine, though not exceptionally flavorful.

Three months ago I came back from a trip to Italy raving about their gelato. I'd never had anything like it here in the states so when I came home I wrote a TripAdvisor review lamenting that I had to leave gelato behind. The lucky souls in Lafayette have no need to lament. Gelato and ice cream are different, but... More

We stop here a few times a year when we make shopping trips to Lafayette. The kids always gets ice cream cones and the wife and I always share the banana split! Everything is always great and the atmosphere is like an old ice cream parlor! Nothing like the old fashion Borden's Ice Cream recipe, too bad you can't buy... More

Staff was wonderful and the servings were generous! Ice cream was a special treat. They also have nachos and hot dogs for a light snack. Old fashioned ice cream shop feel with kids movie on the tv.

Decor is retro, servers are friendly, ice cream portions are large, prices are reasonable - what is there not to like?

we went to Borden's because it is the last standing Borden's ice cream parlor. The décor is old fashioned memorabilia and of course the hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and nuts is PHENOMINAL. Just as delicious as I remember from childhood. There is a shelf around the top of the wall that holds original bottles and containers used by... More

This is place to go after having a great meal or you just want to go and enjoy the atmosphere. One of the locals favorite hangouts. The staff is great and very attentive. I will always come here when I visit my daughter from New Orleans. If you want something that's cold and sweet Bordens Ice Cream can't be beat.

This spot has been in Lafayette for years and thanks to the Lerille family The Parlor is better than ever. A great place to stop after school or in the evening. Great spot for just getting together.
