Very cute place to visit. Located in the heart of New Bern, NC historic district. After walking around and visiting the shops, it's a great little place to sit in and get refreshed with some yummy ice cream. Who doesn't like ice cream.

Lots of flavors of ice cream or frozen yogurt. Cute decor and a small play area in back for children. Gift shop with lots of cow stuffed animals etc.

This non-chain is a real gem for a mealor ice cream with kids. We were regulars with our grandchildren 2007 - 2010 when their family was stationed at Cherry Point. They just moved back and Cow Cafe was our first meal out. They didn't disappoint. The range of hot sandwiches from Greek to Cubans appeals to adult tastes, while the cute name for simple fair appeals to kids. Their homemade chili and sides were all wonderful too.
We even saw a lawyer in his summer sear sucker suit in for a solo lunch. The grands are older now so we sat out front instead of the farm-themed kids play area in the back. Staff is friendly and replenished drinks table side. We'll be back next visit.

LOVED this place. It's adorable, the staff are friendly and will give you samples of any ice cream, and prices are reasonable. Love that they make all of their own ice cream and they have a huge variety of flavors. The butter pecan was delicious!

Our 3 year old is nicknamed "Moo Moo" and she adores cows so anytime we find ourselves in New Bern we love to stop in the Cow Cafe! The ice cream is really good, a tad pricey in my opinion but what ice cream shop isn't, the decor is adorable, the staff is always friendly, and our daughter loves the play area in the back! The only thing I could say is every time we go in the tables seem to be really sticky so they could benefit from frequent cleaning but we always return and the cow-theme never goes out of style! I've heard good things about their food but have never tried anything other than ice cream as we generally stop somewhere for lunch (37th Street Pizzeria!!!) and visit the Cow Cafe later in the day!
