We love this little ice cream shop. They have awesome ice cream and the Brats aren't bad either. It's located in quaint Punta Gorda.

Best ice cream this side of Babcock Hall in Madison WI. Gluttony is a sin but if you are going to commit it you will love doing it here.

Always friendly, smiling & the best ice cream around!! Picnic tables, umbrellas are there for you to sit & enjoy your ice cream. Flavors are plentiful, several types of cups & cones.

If not for the fat in ice cream, I would go here everyday!! As it is, I go here at least 4days out of the week. Quick, friendly & delicious!!! It doesn't look like much, but do yourself a favor & check out this local gem!!

All of the flavors are fantastic! Have tried almost all of them. Julie and the crew are always happy to see everyone and provide great service. Have tried the other establishments, even the one that says they are the best in Punta Gorda and none compare. My family and I will be back.

Heard good things about this place. It is busy, but we weren't impressed. Tried it about 3 times, but probably won't go back. Ice cream is mediocre at best. Servings are small and prices are high.

Every time we come to PG we always stop at the Working Cow at least once during the week. Sometimes more! Each time we come we try to try something new. We like some better than others but all have been delicious. The staff is always friendly and the prices are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend the Working Cow!

Hard to find and well worth it. A gazillion flavors (well maybe not a gazillion, but a lot) that are always delicious. Every month there are new additions. Hard pack, soft serve and lots of sandwiches too.

This ice cream shop offers a wide variety of flavors. All outside sitting. $2.00 will get you a single dip cone. Small portions compared to other shops, but I'm okay with that. I will return.

Thank Winston S
