  • Location is the key word for COWS in Halifax - right on the boardwalk and right beside a very busy hotel. The ice cream is probably over rated and for sure it is over priced but it's great location gi...  more »

  • It might be a bit of a tourist trap, with long lines in the summer, but there's a lot to like about Cow's. They have awesome themed merchandise and hilarious t-shirts, though those might not hold as much appeal if you're a local. The ice cream is delicious, though I don't have a big sweet tooth so I can't finish even a small serving, they are tremendously rich. Sherberts are available if you want less fat but with all the sugar. It would be nice if they could have provided some shade for the people having to spend a significant amount of time in line since the sun can be brutal.
  • Delicious ice cream, adorable clothing and merchandise, Cows is an Atlantic Canadian treasure! Come for the smell of fresh waffle cones alone.
  • Excellent variety of delicious ice cream flavors and waffle cones available. It gets really busy in the summer, but don't be intimidated by the long lines as the great staff work quickly to move things along.
  • The ice cream is very good, although not necessarily the best I've ever had. That said, the place is a riot, I love all the cow-related memorabilia. If you're visiting Halifax, it's fun and worth a visit.
  • What great fun products (especially the themed shirts). The ice cream is great. Service was a bit slow.
