Sweet Cow

Danielle Lirette
You really haven't had ice cream until you've had Sweet Cow's. Spike-haired Drew Honness, a young DIY-style entrepreneur who got his start in the ice cream business scooping for Springs-based Josh & John's. This Platt Park outpost boasts the same friendly air that characterizes the other locations, and the ice cream is to die for, no foolin'. Inspired by a 1950s soda shop, the menu features scoops, shakes, sundaes and floats, all elevated by the quality of that vital ingredient. The Almond Joy cone comes triple-loaded with ginormous chunks of chocolate, almond and coconut in a creamy, perfectly sweetened base; other flavors include an incredible Chocolate Coffee Bean concoction, Ozo Coffee and a tart Key Lime Pie -- and that's not the half of it.
