For a quick dessert after a night of fun, we stopped in for the first time to the Borden's Ice Cream Parlor that we pass almost daily and had never tried yet.

I ordered a sherbet freeze with a cup of Reese's Pieces on the side. My husband ordered a strawberry Dr. Pepper float. Our treats were served at the perfect temperature. It took a bit longer than expected to get our orders but everything was obviously hand made and made to order. We loved all of the children's art all over the walls. The employees were attentive and knowledgeable, helping my husband create a one of a kind treat. Prices were steep for what we received, but I might consider going back again due to the ambiance and nostalgia.

Your not the last one standing for no reason! This is the last standing Borden's in the nation, a land mark you must visit when in Lafayette. It is like stepping back into the 50's. Ice cream, malts, chocolate covered bananas, and many other treats that will be sure to delight. Located in downtown lafayette within walking rage of other really great hot spots.

Nice nostalgic return to our memories of childhood and Elsie the Cow from Borden's Dairy commercials. The children loved the ice cream break.

Family of four enjoyed their ice cream. They do have a drive through but we chose it go inside to order. There is only a few tables and bar stools and a few tables outside. All were taken. About half were taken up by people not eating ice cream which was a bit annoying. We had to eat in our car.
