Borden's

1103 Jefferson, Lafayette, LA -
Posted By Karen Fontenot Madden on 9/9/2004 12:28:00 AM
Borden's is the place to go on Summer weekend afternoons. But beware, it can be crowded on Sunday around 3 p.m. The college is just a block away, and students come by for an afternoon snack, as do families, and just about everyone around. I can't remember when Borden's wasn't around.

If you havn't eaten a meal in a few hours... try the Banana Split, though my FAVORITE is the Gold Brick Sundae.. vanilla ice-cream with gold brick chocolate poured over and pecans sprinkled on top.

The frappes are refreshing and thick - use a spoon!

Borden's chocolate malt is presented with a spoon and a straw. The spoon is more useful, as the malt is too thick to suck up a straw.

Here is where you stand to place your order ... and to watch the experts scoop, dip, mix, and squirt.

A neighborhood ice cream store, Borden's look like it hasn't changed in about a half century.

Portraits of Borden's mascot, Elsie the Cow, are evident inside the restaurant as well as outside above the doors. Her partner Elmer and their calf-child Beauregard are not depicted.
