We gladly continued our ice cream shoppe series on a 90 degree day at Cow Palace. They do more than ice cream here so you can actually have a sit down meal but we just sampled the Turtle Sundae. When you first walk in, they have the ice cream area with a few tables and chairs so that you can enjoy it there without delving deeper into the restaurant. The Turtle Sundae was vanilla ice cream with caramel syrup and hot fudge topped with pecans, whipped cream, and a cherry. It was just as delicious as it sounds. The restaurant was hopping when we were there as was the ice cream bar. You can get cones, malts, shakes and sundaes. They even have a freezer full of ice cream from Compton's Dairy that you can get to take home. The Cow Palace looks like a big brown barn and, coming from I-74, it is before the downtown area so be sure to stop before you stroll Public Square or on your way out of town.
