First class ice cream, no doubt about it. But the serving was 1/3 the quantity normally served for a single scoop AND it cost $4.50. Ridiculous.

Loved it. Had a bit of a line but they were fast and efficient! The salted caramel was really salty but all of the other flavors in our group were wonderful

Delicious ice cream and a large selection. The service was quite slow and the staff quite grumpy at the time we went in, but ice cream was worth the wait.

Great flavors and rich, tasty ice cream. Feeling like having a decadent snack......stop by COWS and get a single scoop on a chocolate dipped cone.....YUM.

As the only "Ice Cream" shop in Banff, this place does a brisk business. The ice cream is fresh but the scoops are small and disappointing. Having been to a place where the scoops are weighed and the cones are baked fresh before your eyes, COWS is pretty average. I had the blueberry, which was average. The cone was average. The service was average. The ice cream was expensive for what we got. If you must have ice cream and nothing else will do, this is your place. BUT With all the great gastronomic choices in Banff, I recommend you spend your calories elsewhere.
