Yummy in house made Belgian chocolate ice cream. Great way to take a break from walking the cute shops along Sedona's Main Street

The pie's were tasty and it was fun from r my kids to watch them make them. The ice cream was just ok but the coffee was delicious. You can buy a whole pie or just a slice.

Was recommended to come here - we like good ice cream & have been disappointed elsewhere with the quality. No problems at the Black Cow - authentic ice cream, good portion sizes. Food that tastes like food rather than just cold! They don't have a huge selection, but there is plenty to choose from, and ehathe we had tasted really... More

We stopped for a cup of coffee and decided to sample the homemade peach pie. With a scoop of homemade malted vanilla ice cream. Busy little local gem. Don't miss this one!

Stopped here for pecan pie and hot tea. Great dessert, and it seemed that many other people also agreed, as the place was busy!

There were 5 of us that each had ice cream from this place and we were thoroughly content and satisfied. You can tell it's made in-house and totally worth it. I would absolutely go back for more.

This was good ice cream. Nothing fancy, nothing special, just good ice cream, which is, well, good. So, if you are in the mood for some, stop here and get some. They lose a circle from me because of the staff member who helped us. Upon ordering a hot fudge sundae, we asked for heavier on the fudge, lighter on... More

Best tasting strawberry rhubarb pie ever! Also has cherry, peach, and apple. We had pie three of the five days we were there. Friendly customer service. Convenient downtown Sedona location. We will be back!

The crumb pie, we had apple, was really delicious. The vanilla ice cream was okay. I wouldn't rave about it. The scoop that came with the pie was pretty small too. Our server was friendly and quick.
