    A great place for ice cream after a hard day of riding . Nice place for kids to enjoy the atmosphere and watch the train go around the room. Lots of flavors to choose from. I had the vanilla apple pie, its definitely worth going back for.

    My husband and I are self-proclaimed hot dog connoisseurs. The hot dogs at Cow Cafe are worthy of six stars (an extra star for the toasted bun). The Mooford’s Chocolate Mountain is worthy of 11 stars (an extra star for the pecans).

    A great spot for families to grab some ice cream. Nice lunch food selections. Friendly service!

    Great place to take the kids. Good sandwich shop with ice cream, including homemade popcorn flavors. Just a note, there are extra seats in the back of the restaurant, that includes a small play area.

    Tasty and adorable icecream shop! Went in to get icecream on a hot summer evening, it was busy but staff handled the customers well.
    Great icecream selection!
    There is a toy train that runs along the top of the dining area, and a kids area in the back. Great place to bring little ones!

    A popular local spot to enjoy breakfast or lunch. Bagels are huge and taste so great. I had a bagel sandwich and there was a generous, quality portion of meats, cheese, and toppings. Definitely going to return to try something new. Staff is very friendly and the restaurant is very clean.

    I’ll keep this review fairly short… I’ve been coming here for years, literally ate here when the original owners opened in New Bern. And while I’ve heard stories of food quality changes and service not being the same, I got to experience that VERY thing today in person while lunching with my dad.

    We arrived at the restaurant around 1:15 and a sign for the dining area had “dining closes at 1:30” and figuring the place closes at 2pm I figured it wouldn’t be an issue.

    We place our order and it arrives pretty quick. It’s tasty but my dad was having a little trouble with the chewy bagel and it was taking him a little longer to eat his sandwich.

    Around 1:40pm, another waitress turns off the lights… while my dad is still clearly eating at the table with me. I couldn’t believe it so I asked our waitress, “could you please turn on the lights again?” She pauses and says “I can but we’re closed.” I was confused because it wasn’t 2pm yet… and then the other waitress says (with a nasty tone) “the dining room closes at 1:30pm.” Our waitress only turned on half the lights and my dad was just ready to go.

    Before leaving I asked to speak with the manager and the cashier was like “who are you?” Excuse me, what?? I’m asking to speak with a manager … and I believe it was the owner or co-owner came up and while somewhat friendly didn’t seem to understand what was going on and honestly didn’t seem to care at all… in fact somewhat annoyed that he had to come up to the counter.

    I will not come back. And I am just really upset that folks here have turned their back on providing a good experience. When we walked out it wasn’t even 1:50pm and the time on the door states they close at 2pm.

    Came here for lunch about 1:33. They still had bagels out for purchase but was told they were starting to close down and clean everything for the next day. I can understand if it was 5/10 min till closing but I couldn’t get anything to snack on. Disappointed to have wasted my lunch.
    This place was highly recommended and I’ll try again someday to update this review.

    I have been coming here for breakfast for about a month now (almost regularly) and every time I go in – everyone seems to be in a good mood and patient/polite. It just has a good vibe overall. Love love love this place!

    Was ordering my bagels today I asked for two everything bagels one with veggie cream cheese she said do you want that toasted I said no but the other with butter yes. She’s like so do you want the vegetable one toasted I said no. She turns around rolls her eyes to the guy behind her. I handed her my my card and snatched it back I’m usually very nice to servers as I am one. But I will not be given an attitude because you’re not understanding what is being told to you. This isn’t the first time I’ve had a bad experience with customer service.

    The Dunkin Donuts on Neuse Blvd is by far my favorite. Always clean, quick, accurate, and Amazing Staff. I have never had an issue here. The food is always fresh, and hot. Their coffee is always fresh. And their staff is unmatched. They are by far the best staff of any Dunkins I’ve been to. Always smiling, they interact with you, and are always greeting you like you are family.

    Went there three times during my visit to Havelock. Ordered two Avocado toast on both occasions and third visit for a chocolate covered waffle cone Rocky road, still an all time favorite. Service was terrific never had a problem. Just wish B/R which is part Dunkin did have my pistachio flavor and the black cherry ice cream as well.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Jossie (3 months ago)
    First off I waited in line for 40 minutes roughly on my break to get something before I had to go back to work. I ordered a Carmel latte no cinnamon. A bagel with cream cheese toasted. I got my bagel hard and not toasted like it came out of the bag there was barely any cream cheese I took a sip of my latte loaded with cinnamon and barely Luke warm. And my large wasn’t even filled it was about 1/2 full. My original chocolate frosted donut then came out with sprinkles and green icing. Truly disappointing and weren’t very pleasant as I was unhappy with their tone after already waited 40 mins in line and going back to work on an empty stomach because I have no time for anything else.
    By Kaci Ipock (a month ago)
    The worst experience ever. At 8:23pm today with a full pastries display, they refused to sell me some donuts. Because the say that the ones on displays were for tomorrow. Don’t recoment this Dunkin.
    By Jossy VC (a month ago)
    Thank you Dunkin Donuts! You made my day!
    I’m not big on sweets, just lemon donuts from Dunkin, and cheesecake.
    I have always said that Dunkin Donuts lemon doughnuts are a reminder of love to me from my father and grandfather… Before I share a Lemon doughnut with anyone, I tell them, that they are an expression and tender of love. I ordered some, opened the box, and found this! 💝😪 Thank you! Sharing these with my family today went to a whole other level!
    The story: when my grandfather (the one who raised me) passed away, my father who I hadn’t seen in 8 years came to the funeral. The day after the service, he took me on a drive, stopped at Dunkin Donuts, my first visit there ever abs told me to order whatever I wanted, I smiled and ordered 2 lemon filled doughnuts. At 15, my father’s gesture made me feel like a little girl. 💝
    Dunkin’s lemon filled doughnut, will always make me smile. Thank you Dunkin!

    I had never been to a Dunkin’ Donuts before. I’m not a huge fun of sweets but I was craving a donut and my boyfriend and I decided to stop by and give it a shot. We got inside the store to get a better idea of the menu since drive thru is usually fast paced and doesnt give you time to choose. The lady was so welcoming and we let her know it was our first time trying and she explained the different options they have. Gave us 3 extra donuts and at the end I couldn’t believe it when she said we didn’t have to worry about paying cus they would be taking care of our bill. Wow how sweet. I truly enjoyed the donuts and the ladies working were super sweet and welcoming.

    This used to be a 5 star review until today when I had the coffee they made incorrectly slapped at me and covered my clothes from an employee that had a childish bad attitude. Hopefully something will be done so this never happens to anyone else.
    By Andrew Boyd (a month ago)
    This was one of my faviort coffee and donut spot.. except for yesterday had a bad mishap with them went through the drive through as nor.al the lady on the mic was very rude. She kept repeating herself like it was a game.so that’s when it started well anyways they got my order which was just a medium coffee and two donuts their was one car in front of me and no one behind me I literally waited for over a half hour and the lady in front of me only got 3 hot drinks.. it was like a game to everyone their.. I really hope you guys get your act together so I can go back to enjoying my coffee and donuts..

    Our third time there.
    Excellent food and service each time.
    The first two times I had the Craven County Eggs Benedict and the hubs and I shared a short stack of pancakes.
    The amount of food is super generous and delicious.
    Today I had the Belgian waffles and they were crispy and delicious.
    Sam was our server the first couple of times and today we had Mary.
    Both ladies ( and the young ladies who seat you and run the cash register) are friendly, welcoming accommodating and friendly.
    Mary, thank you for helping my daughter who is socially awkward feel comfortable and for doing such an amazing job!
    I highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back very soon.
    Thank you.

    Great place to eat breakfast or lunch. Food is fresh and taste wonderful. Portion are very good. Hot food is hot and cold food is cold. They also have a coffee bar and it’s awesome. The staff are professional, friendly and attentive. There is handicap parking and access. The men and women restrooms are very clean.

    Small place but super cute. The people were so nice. I loved the coffee bar. So many different kinds of coffee and creamers. The food was great best pancakes I have had in awhile.

    I couldn’t finish because it’s a LOOOT for 5′ 2″ lady like me and I’m sad about it 😭(of course, I meant in a good way!) I took out the rest. $11 for three blueberry panckaes but I am happy with what I paid for!! It was delicious, wish they had more servers because the server was so busy alone at peak hour.
