We stopped by on our way home from work one evening and ordered a small cheese and a large buffalo pizza, which wasn't on the menu. Came to $32 - $28 for the buffalo.

Whenever something good happens in my life, I go to the Cottage for ice cream and pizzas. The service is great, the food is superior, and they are constantly renovating to stay ahead.

We have only had the cottage for delivery which has been great. You can order on their website and they always delivery quite fast. They make very good hot sandwiches/pizza and the milkshakes are amazing!
