I couldn't understand why the line to get ice cream was so long, until I got my ice-cream. This was delicious, definitely wroth the wait.

The cream part of ice cream is back! No processed, fake sugar flavor here folks. These treats are homemade and you can really taste it. Unique flavor combinations created with fresh ingredients is surely why this place has a nearly constant long line. Don't worry though, it moves fast and there is plenty of seating.

I waited twenty-three minutes for ice cream at this whimsical shop shaped like a milk can. I type that, not with dread, but with delight. I didn't even know Little Man Ice Cream existed; now I can't forget that it does. On my way to dinner, I saw the line and asked my server what the line that never seemed... More

I loved it was different and very good... when I went it was pretty cold... so I didn't finish my ice cream because of that

I had the pumpkin chocolate chip, which was very tasty. My husband had the thai coffee ice cream and really enjoyed it as well. The person who helped us was helpful and funny. We will definitely be back for another waffle cone!

They handmake their ice creams (both traditional and vegan choices). I had the vegan rocky road and it was a rich chocolate full of flavor and fillings...even my non-vegan husband loved it.

The ice cream is great. The location on a hill with the milk jug roof is a great atmosphere. Just be prepared for long lines. But they have an express line that still gives you a choice of about six ice cream cones.

Incredible site and ice cream. Lovely this time of year with pumpkins. Met someone in line that drove 40 miles for their favorite flavor. Very fun for children.

The title says it all. This is the most famous Ice cream place I have ever visited. Everyone is talking about it. Try the salted caramel Oreo, you will,go back. It's an outside venue, probably not a winter place, and is in a great location. There are several,good restaurants in the area and a pedestrian bridge to the Coors field... More
