We always stop by the happy cow after dinner in Morehead on our weekly NC vacation. It has become a tradition and the kids look forward to it every year!

Great ice cream! I'd love to know a bit more about the history of how it came to be. I understand it was opened by a young entrepreneur? Regardless it was a wonderful stop at the end of a lovely evening in Morehead city

Walk up to the window and prepare to enjoy! Generous portions, creamy, high quality ice cream. Waffle cone was crispy and tasty. Fun to get an ice cream cone and stroll the Morehead City Water front and watch the boats. Kids love it too!
