We stumbled upon this quaint little place, and were wonderfully delighted by not only the atmosphere but also the food. We each had sandwiches and left pleased and satisfied.

Once again, a trip into downtown Milton gets topped off with a stop at the Happy Cow for a sandwich and some local Milton chit chat. Ted and Kyle are friendly and courteous ( those i like to tease Ted about being a curmudgeon )...More

If you want a sandwich to vie with Carnegie Deli in New York at half the price, grab a sandwich at the Happy Cow. Small pocket cafe in the heart of Historic Milton frequented by many vocals and visitors alike.

Went in for lunch. This is a small and very local sandwich shop. Homemade everything. Had great customized sandwiches (choose any bread, any meat, any extras) and the items in the salad case looked so good we added small German Potato Salad to our lunch....More

Went in for lunch as it was within walking distance from our car. It's a nice atmosphere and decor upon entering. Sandwich/sub options were plentiful and the portion of meat, cheese etc given on sandwich was more then enough. Borderline to much. Would go back...More
