Selections include hand-dipped ice cream, sundaes, malts, sherbet flips, ice cream sodas and more.

Many of the treats are crafted the traditional Borden way….the old fashioned way. In addition to the ice cream option, Borden’s offers a few savory selections as well (hot dogs, nachos, Frito pie, etc).

Seriously, for ice cream lovers this is the place to visit. It’s such an iconic stop on your visit to Lafayette, LA. The outside of the building is perfect for all those IG feeds out there in need of more great images.

I stopped by on a chilly, rainy afternoon so the only real choice, for me, was a cup of coffee with a big ole scoop of vanilla ice cream in it.It was a nice way to warm up while enjoying delicious Borden’s ice cream.

By the way, if you’ve never had a scoop of ice cream in your coffee I highly recommend it. It’s like coffee with creamer on steroids 🙂
