Yes, there was a line out the door, but gosh those kids behind the counter are efficient! And whatever is left is posted on te board so you can contemplate as you wait. Sadly, there was no chocolate cherry chili left, so I had the honey lavender - so good, really delicious. My husband had the salted caramel, which was... More

Only got there once during my visit unfortunately. But the ice cream was awesome. They had some really funky and unusual flavors. I believe I had Basil ice cream. Well worth stopping by while in Crested Butte.

Wow!! These folks know how to change up ice cream flavors. We make sure to hit this place every day and every time we are in Crested Butte. It is really good ice cream. Very talented folks with some great ideas for new and different flavors. It is a place to step outside your comfort zone and try something other... More

Stopped in after dinner one night, mainly because the line was out the door and into the street. We had to see what the fuss was about! Though the line was long, it did go quickly. I recommend sampling any funky flavor that strikes your fancy before purchase. I tested the chile chocolate cherry flavor and it was yummy. Of... More

It would be nice if the young girls working here had manners. They are rude and unhelpful. The ice cream is good (not great) but over-priced. The flavors sound enticing (vanilla peach pink peppercorn, strawberry herb) but flavoring is minimal - everything tastes like vanilla. You can't taste the fruits!

Great little place to get homemade ice cream on a hot day in Crested Butte. The line was long, but it moved fast. The portions were huge for a single scoop and the price very reasonable for such a large serving. I had pistachio ice cream, which was packed with pistachio nuts which was great, but it tasted more like... More

We discovered Third Bowl on our trip to Crested Butte last summer. This time we ended up have a scoop 3 out of 4 nights! They have so many unique flavors to choose from each night and the quality is top notch. They have no problem providing you with as many sample tastes you request to find the right flavor... More

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.
