“Ice Cream Stop”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The Working Cow is the best little ice cream place in Punta Gorda! They have a lengthy list of flavors and also serve short order food but you cannot beat their ice cream! What a treat on a hot day!

“Best Ice Cream in SW Florida”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

It is a little shack that sells some lunch food, but we go there for the ice cream. They have many different flavors, but I love the blackberry one and my husband loves pistachio. He tried many different places wherever we go, but never found pistachio ice cream as good as the one here.
The portions are nice size, and the price can't be beat. The owner is a lovely lady, very friendly, her staff is also very helpful and friendly.
We have been going there for several years, and were never disappointed.

“how I miss this place all summer!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Spend the summer losing the weight from going here 2 to 3 times per week all winter.!! Best ice cream in North America! Try the salted carmel for a real treat. We've worked our way thru all the flavors! Only found one that did not excite me. But others loved it.
Any wait in line is worth it, even in the rain! Terrific owner and staff. Be a regular and get a welcome back hug after being gone all summer!

“Love it!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

This is our favorite ice cream shop in Punta Gorda & Port Charlotte. Friendly staff & amazing dessert. Outside seating is nice on a warm day. During peak snowbird season you may have to wait in line a bit but it's worth it. I should try more flavors but the chocolate peanut butter shake is to die for!

“Little Building--Big on ice cream”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Ice cream is my favorite food. My wife and I have traveled all over the country (We have been to all 50 states), and no matter where we go, we always ask where is the best ice cream. Such was the case when we were visiting Punta Gorda, FL. We were told we have to go to the Working Cow. Perfect recommendation. We both went with two scoops--I had Gator Tracks (vanilla ice cream, chocolate swirls and peanut butter cups) and Coffee with espresso beans. My wife had two scoops of the coffee espresso beans. Excellent ice cream and very reasonably priced...A caveat--it is a little shack off the main road so you have to be sure to watch out for it. We are adding Working Cow to our list of excellent ice cream shacks we have been to
