Homemade Ice Cream

Creative ice cream flavors served in bowls, waffle cones, or cake cones. The flavors vary each day and include such flavors as olive oil ginger and cowboy coffee.

Good not incredible. Long long line. Lots of flavor options. Needed someone to direct traffic. One of my flavors was wonderful, threw the other one out.

Great ice cream place! Its unique that it is upstairs. Best waffle cones I've ever had. We have had ice cream twice so far and plan on a third trip tomorrow night! The pineapple upsidedown cake flavor is amazing!

Placed located on second floor. Patio in back. Happened to be loud and noisy with some uncontrolled 5 year olds. Ice cream was very good. Located towards west end of elk street.

If you love ice cream ,especially unique ice cream, skip the place on the other side of Elk Avenue and venture up the stairs for a real treat. The combinations of flavors are amazing!

Tucked up on a second floor, Third Bowl is high above other ice cream parlors in every sense of the word. All the ice cream is homemade and the day's flavors are written on the chalk board. I had been told to try the honey lavender but on my first visit, it was not available. Cilantro lime and a combination... More

We took pineapple upside down and lavender honey flavors, both were nice. This place seems busy with a long queue but the wait is worth.

The food was great and the staff was excellent. I had the spring rolls and they were very tasty. We really liked Michelle. She was a pleasure.

This was, quite likely, the BEST ice cream I've ever had! Not only was the ice cream delicious, but so was the HOME made (they make the batter each day) waffle cone! The staff were friendly and helpful. We were able to sample several flavors before deciding. It was simply perfect! I went with my boys after taking them hiking.... More
