I'm not a big ice cream person. I heard this place was good but kept passing it by. Then at Gothic store I spied Honey- Lavendar ice cream and had to try it. It was awesome, and today I will go to the store for the salted caramel.

Ice Cream that is homemade in the store - yes please! The flavors are different and the salted caramel was amazing - you have to come here while in Crested Butte!

Many different options: salted caramel, lavendar and honey, etc. Very convenient location. Hours are somewhat odd; it didn't open until 1:00 pm the day we tried to stop in.

Need I say more? I'm sorry I can't remember the flavors I had as my trip was 7+ months ago but they were delicious. Of course there were far fewer flavors available for vegans but that's okay. I was plenty happy and hope they have a long and prosperous business life. My companions tried some of the dairy flavors and... More

They usually only have 2-3 extra special flavors going, the rest of the menu is standard ice cream choices (still homemade, but C'mon no one wants plain mint or any other pedestrian flavor). They don't put enough fancy stuff in the special flavors. Still, it's as good as it gets in CB. Also the name can be modified to Turd... More

Lots of unique flavors using lots of local ingredients makes this a CB must. Stop in and get a taste before committing--the service is always friendly!

Some really great flavours of icecream to try, and some weird ones that will have your tongue thinking 'Heyo, what the heck is that...!'. Definitely a place to visit during your stay in Crested Butte.

We love this little place and if you get there when the waffle cones are just out of the oven it's even better. They homemade the waffle cones and the flavors are so unique. We were just in CB this weekend and they were closed until December..... we will so be there in December. Even if we have to bundle... More

I love ice cream, so when we spotted Third Bowl, there was no chance I wouldn't give it a try. And it's both special and good. Special because this is genuinely locally home-made ice cream. They have a wide selection of extremely interesting flavours, they'll let you sample, and you'd be wise to, because not all of the adventurous flavours... More

There's hardly been an ice cream shop or flavor I haven't liked, yet Third Bowl stands out. Family and friends and I were in town on a stop of Bicycle Tour of Colorado and well, you know, when you're biking like crazy in the summer, there's nothing better than ice cream. Lots of ice cream. We passed up dessert at... More
