Comfy Cow Opening in the Highlands

With all the fresh snow on the ground, now would seem like the perfect time to talk about ice cream. We have a lot of frozen treats in the Highlands from Orange Leaf frozen yogurt near Gardiner Lane all the way down to The Homemade Pie and Ice Cream Kitchen in the Original Highlands. It makes sense that a neighborhood such as ours with the amount of foot traffic that Bardstown Rd and Baxter Ave get would be able to support this many sellers of frozen delights. Where, oh where will it go?

It would seem that local coffee giant, Heine Brothers, will be closing their store at the corner of Bardstown Rd and Eastern Parkway (which is only about a half mile from their original location at Longest Ave and Bardstown Rd). Heine Brothers’ plan would be to expand and update some of their existing stores, including the original location. That would leave quite a nice location for opening something like…say, a Comfy Cow. I don’t know all the details, but there will be an update when I figure everything else out.

I plan on putting in a call to Comfy Cow owners Roy and Tim Koons-McGee to get a timeline for the project. One of my clients bought the McGee’s Highlands home last summer, and I tried to get a “free ice cream for life” card at closing, but they weren’t having it. Maybe I can just count on them for some info instead. Regardless, this addition will make for a pretty sweet intersection with Lula’s frozen yogurt and Cefiore across the street. This will soon be a trifecta of confections. Comfy Cow has seen some strong success in Westport Village and Frankfort Ave, so the obvious next move will be the Highlands. See you soon, Comfy Cow!
