A Must for Tourists (and Locals)!

We saw the Little Man Ice Cream shop listed on a "unique attractions" site for Denver so we stopped mostly to take a picture of the giant milk can.

Who could believe there would be a line for ice cream in the middle of winter? Well there is at this place and the reason why is that their ice cream is delicious! I tried the pumpkin chip but every flavor is great. They will let you sample as much as you like - the hard part is deciding on... More

Or chocolate salted oreo (which is also vegan)! Little man's selection of always-amazing ice cream and sorbet flavors changes daily. If you are lucky, you will be blessed with a day of either salted oreo or salted chocolate oreo OR BOTH!! If they have both, get them together. This joint is legit. Do it. There is always a line, even... More

The ice cream is so good, I was willing to get a parking ticket! The salted oreo is my favorite, but they are very good about letting you try several samples before making a decision. The service is exceptional and everyone is very friendly. I have never been when the line is not at least 20 deep. If you are... More

Fun atmosphere and great ice cream. I am not sure that I would consider it my favorite, but it is very good. The only problem that in the summer there can be long lines.

This place is for the die-hards that need a Ice Cream fix. This is truly a unit stand, but as we are a couple of those die-hards, we found the flavors and tastes t be average. I recommend you go as the site is unique and the service was outstanding. Where else might you go for a cold-cone to satiate... More

A must see in Denver. Ice cream & Sorbet delicious with many flavors to choose from. I tried the Salted Caramel and it was too salty for me to enjoy/eat. They happily replaced it with a different flavor without questions. Cute stand with the Milk Can!! Historical area being revived.

As a Native New-Englander I am spoiled by the gamut of Ben and Jerry's and other local scoop shops that line streets of quaint NE Towns. That said Little Man Ice Cream is probably the most unique shop I have ever been too. Their portfolio of flavors is truly incredible. They make both homemade sorbet and ice creams to satisfy...

We stopped by here on a hot summer day. The day we went it was busy and there was not any place to sit or get any shade. The line and wait was long. I think the ice cream was okay. I think the wait I'll not be bad on a cooler day.
