Located on a hill-side in the Highlands neighborhood in Denver, you must visit Little Man Ice Cream. The place is shaped like a 40-foot milk can. You walk right up, order your ice cream or gelato and enjoy a seat on the patio. I've always seen at least a little bit of a line there. It doesn't matter if it's... More

Don't miss this local favorite, great ice cream in generous portions. The line was over 1/2 block long on a Saturday night but worth the wait. Live 50's "drive-in" music and dancing took place in the common area was we waited in line. Great atmosphere.

Great place to take the family for a treat! Not the absolute best ice cream we've ever had, but it was good, and the servings were very generous. 1 scoop was equal to 2 any place else. The evening we went, there was a DJ playing a wide variety of songs, and the kids had a ball dancing for the... More

Well - I did write a review of Little Man's last year that said it is only ice cream. I still believe it is only ice cream - but now I realize there is a total experience here. We stopped here on the way home from dinner. There was a long line, and I really did not want to stand... More

There is almost always a line and a nice crowd hangs around this place. The ice cream is delicious and is worth the wait. I tried a few and think that the Mint Chip was great.

Talk about RICH RICH RICH ice cream! Almost to a fault! No one in our group could finish there cone because it was so think. The flavors I have had have been good, but they have always been my 2nd or 3rd choice since they sold out of my first.

It's not often that you see an ice cream shop with a longer line than most trendy clubs. Little Man was worth the wait. The outdoor ice cream shop has two stands - the building with the full menu and a cart with a limited selection of ice cream flavors. We waiting in line for the cart and were able... More

I'll start by saying I've never had salty ice cream except by accident. It's kinda different by good, and if you're looking for a novel experience you've got to go. When we went, there was a couple stands set up selling things and a street performer playing live music which provided a very neat atmosphere. There isn't a lot of... More

There was a line, of course but not too bad and it moves fairly quickly. Once we got to the window we were greeted by the happiest servers on earth. Very helpful and let us sample a flavor. The people in my party and I all got a kid's cup and it was plenty. The ice cream is rich and... More
