Homemade ice creams and sorbets - very yummy

I'm a sucker for homemade ice cream and will get it whenever I see it - Third Bowl did not disappoint. Ice cream was creamy and flavorful (but not overdone) - very, very tasty (I went twice in three days). They have a variety of unique flavors that change daily, something to suit every taste... read more

Great ice cream backed by a great location and staff. The portions are extremely generous and the variety of flavors are so unique. If you stop by you have to be brave and shy away from the cliche Vanilla or Chocolate. 3rd Bowl puts it's own spin on ice cream with flavors like honey lavender, pineapple chilli, fruit pebbles.

this was a fun place for our family to try. Everything is natural and the taste is pretty amazing. I had the Raspberry Lemonade Sorbet and it was wonderful! :)

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 that is chocolate-compatible, fork over... 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....
