There is something nostalgic about being in an old fashioned diner. A word of caution - order your own order of Fries and gravy as you will not want to share it with anyone. The fries are just crispy enough and the gravy is the perfect topping. One of the best cheesy yummy pizza I had in a long time.... More

We, along with several family members, stopped here on our way to some cabins we had rented on Manitoulin Island, this past summer. Very nice place to stop. Clean, bright and friendly atmosphere. They have almost every flavour of ice cream known to man. All fresh tasting and generous portions. When we were there, the place was manned by an... More

My husband and I went here for subs one night. They were very good. We had difficulty finding seats. The place was very busy because it's known for its ice cream. I had the ice cream for dessert. I choose moose tracks. It was delicious, but the ice cream was very expensive.

On a hot day, ice cream was a must. Local ice cream shop with lots of food and dessert choices. We had cones and ice cream was good. Somewhat pricey for the size but it is a tourist area.

A must stop for fun and ice cream. Many flavours to choose from. Limited seating inside - though awesome lookout to take your cones just behind the info centre beside it. The staff were friendly and helpful - and offered to give some samples of the rare flavours.. I recommend you get your cone in a cup - especially if... More

A great locally owned ice cream and eatery featuring Farquhar's dairy and ice cream - a Manitoulin Island original! Great variety of ice cream flavours to choose from, but also great fresh made-in-front-of-you submarine sandwiches and other food choices and good sized indoor table and chairs area. Nice to see so many young people with a summer job who also... More

Service was fast and friendly, there was a lot of choice in ice cream flavours and the portion sizes were decent. The ice cream prices were a bit expensive but the ice cream was good.

This location is a great spot to grab an ice cream cone while visiting Manitoulin Island. Located in Little Current, close to the Swing Bridge, 3 Cows and a cone is a clean, friendly location with many flavours of ice cream to chose from. Single scoop ice cream is really 2 scoops! Yummy!!! Prices are reasonable. Glad to see that... More

Lots of flavours to choose from and they let you sample them. What you get for the price is worth it. The baby cone was huge!
