I often meet friends for lunch at this neighborhood restaurant. You order burgers, salads, etc. at the counter and they bring it to you. I haven't tried the ice-cream, but the flavors are enticing. They have a little container of suggested discussion topics on the...More

My sister and I decided to check out this cafe for lunch-very glad we did. We liked the atmosphere (casual and comfortable), the service (very friendly) our lunch (delicious) and the ice cream (REALLY delicious.) Totally recommended!

Best ice cream we've had in a long time. Hamburgers a bit over cooked. Salad dressing a bit too tart. Wait staff was good. Cow with socks great.

The food was very good and the soda were out of this world. The ice cream was really good and the service was top notch:)

Sure they have some interesting flavors of creamy ice-cream that they make, but I go for the sandwiches and home made chips. I like Simon's Club, which has large chunks of white meet that looks like it is cut by hand. You'll pay a little...More

Little Calf Creamery and Cafe is a Conejo Valley original. Started in 2015, this local, Mom and Pop restaurant has become a hub for our neighborhood. We serve great food (burgers, sandwiches, salads, and soup) along side our amazing frozen treats. We make all our dressing and sauces in house. We brine our chicken and roast our turkey. We only use fresh chicken (never frozen) and certified Angus beef. Of course our ice cream is made right here in house, accompanied by our special recipe waffle cones. Little Calf offer scoops. sundaes, shakes, malts, ice cream sandwiches (on homemade cookies), and banana splits. Flavors rotate regularly, so check our website for the current line up! See you soon!
