Drive down Main Street any summer evening and you will likely see a crowd of people outside of a small ice cream store. That would be Wholly Cow. A small counter leads into a gift shop and seating area, but most people prefer to sit at the tables provided outside. Ice cream and custard is excellent, although selection is somewhat... More

What's not to like? Great atmosphere in a local shop in a cute downtown. Exceptional food and custard, and more flavors than anyplace I know of. And if they don't have your flavor made up, they'll make it on the spot. Plus full topping bar for hot food. Blows the chains out of the water, plus the prices are great... More

Frozen Custard was good, but not exceptional. They have a lot of selection, for toppings. And a nice food menu, but I only had the frozen custard.

When we are jonesing for custard, Wholly Cow is our local favorite. They mix up custom flavors for you on a cold stone...not unlike the Coldstone Creamery...only better.

Nice little place in Delafield to get some custard, Superman ice cream (my 6 year old's favorite,) and some great burgers too.

We went here after dinner both nights we were in Delafield. They only have two flavors of custard (chocolate and vanilla) but they have about a dozen flavors of ice cream - and they can mix them together for you. They also have toppings. They do server some food, but at the time we were there, all the people were... More

An average custard that's more akin to DQ that homemade custard. In fact, the custard here taste like the milk carton mixes that Mister Softee ice cream trucks serve in New York City. So, I have a hard time believing it's truly homemade. Also, the burger is pretty much a reheat and eat beef patty supplied from some major for... More

Wholly Cow is a great little gem in Delafield, WI. The frozen custard is made fresh daily and is so creamy and delicious! They have great sundaes and also offer "cobblestone" custard, where you can mix in the toppings of your choice. In addition to custard and ice cream, they also serve burgers, hot dogs, fries and other American food.... More

Great for burgers and dessert. Don't be fooled and think this is just a place to stop for ice cream. The burgers here are made fresh and are very tasty. The custard is very good and your best bet would be to try one of their specialty sundaes. Various flavors of ice cream are also available (probably to appeal to... More

This is a tiny little icecream place that serves some burgers and such. It is a local favorite and I think has been around for decades. I think the ice cream is home-made, but not sure. It is adorable and if you go to Delafield, yes you should go there.
