Homemade Hot Fudge

I'm a sucker for house-made ice cream places, so obviously I liked Third Bowl. Had the peppermint stick and it was very tasty, but pretty standard among this kind of place. However, the homemade hot fudge stole the show. I could've eaten a bowl of that and been very happy. If you order ANY flavor... read more

It was freezing cold and we were stuffed with pizza, so we almost passed up the recommendation not to miss the "THIRD BOWL", but we are SO glad we didn't! We had a large party including children and we all had such a great time tasting and selecting which flavor we wanted. The ice cream is amazing and we had... More

Enjoyed the ice cream so much we made this a stop each night we were in town. Employees were great, and offered tastes for any flavors you are interested in. Traditional flavors are offered, with some unique flavors like bourbon bacon or honey jasmine.

Can't agree with the traveler from Georgia.Service was excellent, and I think we had same college boy who worked when they were apparently talking way too loud for other customers' comfort.It's a tiny place,having 10 people they occupied most of the space.So "in front of the whole restaurant "is a wild exaggeration, as room would fit probably another 3-4 people.And...

We have grandkids in CB, and a trip to Third Bowl is a standard item on the itinerary. They make their own ice cream right there. It is incredible. And they are so generous with the town and the folks who live there. A real asset for Crested Butte, and great people

So, if any of you have a 12 year old boy, you can relate. I will preface this by saying that the ice cream was nice. Interesting flavors like honey rosemary, etc. Very unique and hand crafted. Also the hot chocolate was divine and worth waiting for. Now, for the bad part. We had a group of 10 people and... More

It's just the very best! There are lines of people outside the door to get scoops of the surprising combinations of flavors! So rich and creamy and delicious. I'm writing this review after hours and wish they were still open!! Tomorrow....

We stopped here twice, since we enjoyed it so much. There are the standard flavors along with some unusual flavors. I had the chocolate fudge which was excellent while my wife had blueberry. There is a wide variety of flavors and they offer tastes. I tried the honey lavender and found it too sweet for me but other people might... More

Quite a collection of different flavors - the ones we tried were delicious. These are just extra characters to allow this review to post.

This is a very cool place that has some unique flavors to go along with the usual suspects like coffee, pistachio, salted caramel, etc. I had the jalapeño peach and my wife had the blueberry, both of which were amazing. I thought the jalapeño would be strong but it wasn't. It was just the right amount of heat to go... More
