Lafayette is the center of the oilfield in Louisiana and has been forever. I first came to Lafayette in 1974. Driving down Johnston Street there was a little white building, the Borden's Ice Cream Shop. It was a treat in 1974 and still a delight...More

I have frequented Borden's since my childhood. It has been refurbished since then, reflecting a 50s-style diner. It's a great place to take the whole family, and there is plenty on the menu to please everyone! Coloring pages to keep the kids busy, as well.
