Don't Miss Little Man in Denver

Super tasty ice cream and sorbet-- tons of choices, and rotating flavors. The line to the ordering counter doesn't lie, so many people love Little Man that the line sometimes weaves up the block. Definitely visit Little Man to satisfy your sweet tooth.

This is an interesting spot around the corner from where we had dinner. It was very popular based on the line! It had some unusual flavors but some that our group desired were not available. There is outdoor seating to enjoy. Would return again!

Amazing assortment of flavors. When they have it the Apple Pie Ice Cream is my favorite dessert of all time. 16th St Chocolate is awesome too. This is a small establishment with no in door seating, but that doesn't stop them from being open year round. Best thing about snowy days is the short lines.

This unique ice cream shop serves great ice cream. No indoor seating, but they have heat lamps to keep you warm. There are quite a few interesting shops around, and nice views. Makes for a nice add-on to a Denver visit.

always have new flavors daily. In the summer you will find a big line every night, however, in the winter (yes they're still open) there is never a long line. Highly recommend stopping here after a dinner in lohi.

Our family loves brunch and we especially enjoy doing brunch at Zengo then walking to Little Man. The ice cream is excellent and it's such a fun environment in the summer especially!

There is a large variety of ice cream flavors, but some may not be available when you go. Not to worry because there are a lot of other flavors, some better than others. Be prepared for long lines and difficulty parking.

It makes sense to go to an oversized cream can for ice cream. Varied flavors hand made in small batches, it is all very good. Reasonably priced for portion size. Lines can be long but for the most part move pretty quickly. It definitely has a neighborhood feel as they seem to have a lot of activities going on. Why... More

There are at least 6 " World Largest Frying Pans" around America, but this is the first Worlds Largest Milk Can I have found. It is a nice place with good Ice cream, inventive flavors in a nice area. I recommend you stop.

I'll give this place the benefit of the doubt since I visited during the off-season. Any ice cream place opened late In November is OK in my book. However, I must call it like I see it and the ice cream I had during my visit had a good amount of freezer burn. I had the Peanut Butter and Jelly... More
