So, I've never been to the location in Santa Fe. I frequent the one in Arroyo Seco. I don't even like ice cream! That said, I have been known to get tastes of it with my coffee in the morning when there is lemon or lavender flavors. I hate to admit it it but I am a grown up and... More

Every time I have gotten Taos Cow it had chunks of ice in it and the flavors are weak. Never again. I just don't think ice chunks should in iced "cream."

I was looking forward to the Mexican Chocolate ice cream when I arrived but unfortunately there was only a limited selection of flavors. Still, the ice cream was ok.

the music blaring was annoying. Don't get me wrong, I like headbanger music, but it didn't seem appropriate for an ice cream shop. And the ice cream was good, but not knee-buckling, OMG delicious.

Quaint and charming. It was the main place to get sweets in Arroyo Seco. It's a good kid friendly place for kids to go to while parents are at art galleries or boutiques.

I bought a mixed cup of ice cream while attending the Santa Fe Folk Art Alliance show. One of the flavors contained 50% inedible chunks of frozen caramel which could either ruin your teeth or create a choking hazard. I would rather have had actual edible ice cream. I went back to the selling booth and showed it to this... More

Fresh local produce forms the basis of this ice cream. Delicious flavors. Just right for lazy summer days

The ladies behind the counter were friendly enough, it's there product which stinks. Going to Taos Cow was a trip highlight, but it seems like the formula has changed. Instead of a yummy creamy ice cream consistantsy that just melted, it has become grainy. It's nice that they have unique flavors, but why bother in such a poor base. Instead... More

We drove to Arroyo Seco and stopped at Taos Cow not just for the ice cream but for the experience. They had fun menu items. I had the Cafe Ole flavored ice cream that was delicious and tried Cherry Pistra flavor that was okay. I bought the Taos Mountain dark chocolate energy bar along with the newspaper article of the...
