Warning! This place gets crowded on the weekends, with a line that wraps around the block. Come during the week and enjoy a table outside where you can people watch. The ice cream is so good, fresh, fun flavors. Loved it!

One of the best and weirdest sorbet I've ever eaten. The place was really cool and the employees very helpful by offering to give you a taste of all the weird flavors they have. By far a great experience to have while in Denver.

Buses routed through the Highland neighborhood stop near by so accessible even if you're not driving. Public transportation in Denver is good, RTD seems to get high marks regularly. This is a local favorite as evidenced by the queue of locals. There was a queue about 20 feet up the hill from the premise and it look 35-40 minutes but... More

I had heard the stories about this place so I decided to venture on over. What a fun experience. You will have some very different and creative flavor choices, ones you can't get any where else. The employees are very encouraging and patient as you taste the different kinds while you are making up your mind. I will tell you... More

Stopped by on a beautiful and warm March day. Stood in line for about 30 minutes, but boy was it worth is. I was a little disappointed they didn't have the mexican chocolate ice cream, because that had a bunch of great reviews. Instead, it was craft beer week, and I got a single (which is huge) with 2 flavors-... More

I was drinking so much that night we still in line for so long but the ice cream was so worth the wait. The next day I woke up I thought it was a dream I asked people about it for weeks before somebody actually knew where I had gone. my buddies didn't remember. When I finally found it again... More

Awesome setting. Good neighborhood w a park across the street. Good ice cream. The giant milk building of courses the draw. The only thing I think they could do to make it cooler is to install some old smiley glasses windows midway up and display all the stored goodies (herseys, sprinkles, candies, etc) to those waiting in line!

Yes, it was <40 in Denver; no, we didn't care. This place has, hands down, some of the best ice cream I have ever put in my mouth. My son agrees. I recommend looking for an online menu before you go, because their ice cream names are a little nontraditional, and I didn't immediately notice descriptions. At the risk of... More

Best ice cream around! There is always a wait but it is totally worth it. Awesome for all ages but the kids absolutely love it.

Little Man is a Denver Icon! No visit to Denver is complete without having ice cream here. The best time to go is in the Fall when surrounding restaurants have outdoor entertainment! You do have to stand in line, even in a snow storm so be prepared! However, the ice cream is totally worth it!
