We loved this place, and cannot say enough good things about the selection of ice cream flavors and toppings. Anything salted caramel is exquisite. The creaminess of the ice cream was crazy...almost a custard, but not quite. It was simply the best I've ever had. However, goodness comes at a price. I would have been more comfortable paying $1.50-$2.00 less... More

Who knew you could take some of those flavors and turn it into a decadent ice cream. Glace can be a little pricey but it is well worth it. Stop by and try a few samples before you decide. You are bound to love a flavor that may sound a little off for ice cream but you will love it.

We stopped in for some ice cream while running around KC. There were several unique flavors of ice cream available - and tasting fresh corn ice cream was a first for me...it tasted just like fresh creamed corn, but cold! Both of us chose to try a black cherry float. Mine was made with sweet cream ice cream, and my... More

Christopher Elbow is famous for his artisanal chocolates. At Glace he puts the same level of creativity and imagination into his ice cream. Come and enjoy flavors you already love and experience new taste treats. Love the dark chocolate!

Finally got around to trying this ice cream. The flavors are unique and true to the descriptions. Most of us got a scoop of chocolate with caramel. Sooooo delicious. The lemon was also excellent. We went at night after eating at Spin pizza and there was a short line, but the staff were working very hard to keep things moving.... More

We were in Kansas City for a soccer tournament and decided to try one of the "best ice cream" places in the area before we left. Was definitely very tasty. A little pricey for the amount you get. A bit upscale for ice cream, but definitely some of the best ice cream I've ever tasted. I don't know if I'd... More

This is some of the best ice cream ever! Unusual flavors as well as more traditional flavors, creamy, and smooth. They let you sample the flavors before buying. I wanted to take off a star for the price because it is a little pricey, but I couldn't - it's just that good.

We've never had ice cream this good before. Very unique and delicious! Afterwards you'll have a settled tummy and have a fresh clean taste in your mouth. This place prides itself on fresh whole ingredients. They switch up the flavors from time to time so don't count on "your" flavor being available every time. But that's okay....you'll find something new... More

This place has lots of local flavors in their collections of creamy goodness. Christopher Elbow Chocolate, Roasterie Coffee and different spices and flowers, to name a few, can be served up in a cup, cone or shake. Pints are available for taking home.
