Great ice cream selection. I have had 3 different flavors so far and I have never been dissapointed. Good family place.

Even late at night, there's still a line! Intense flavors are wonderful in cups, cones and shakes. The milk can theme is delightful, and there are plenty of chairs and tables for patrons to enjoy. Even the line markers are in the shape of ice cream cones! A delicious irony? An exercise studio is housed in a neighboring building! Yummy!!

The line a pleasant early summer (Friday) evening was around the block. I waited 40 minutes, long for ice cream standards, even for an ice creak lover like me. But it was well worth it. The ice cream ranks with the best in flavor, texture, and value. I ordered a size that seemed to big at the time but had... More

I came here on a Tuesday night in the summer, around 8:00 PM. It took around 30 minutes to get through the massive line, but the wait was worth it. The eccentricity of the flavors is what makes this place unique, and I got the chocolate raspberry and horchata. Both were very good, and also affordable. I'm not sure that... More

I thought the long lines meant this ice cream was going to be great. It was just okay. I ordered the Salted chocolate Peanut Butter Cup. It was a little too salty, while my wife's was not salty enough. My son ordered Chocolate from the cart, and it melted quickly. I give points for unique flavors and the building itself.... More

Great setting and the ice cream is delicious! Super busy usually and super hard parking. Can get really crowded on weekends. It's a great patio and lots of people watching. It's fun to walk the highlands area with your licks.

Great ice cream! Went here after a night out. The line was way up the street, but they had the little stand out on the patio and we snuck over to that. They had the salted Oreo, so we got that and the snicker something or other... Pretty good stuff. But go early to avoid the line!

I'd be 800 lbs if I lived near this place. Delicious little ice cream stand with lots of flavors. Service is friendly and while there's usually a line they get you in and out.

Our last visit to Little Man included a round of ice cream treats for four adults, one teen, and two young boys. We did a mix of waffle, sweet, cake cones and bowls. I had the Vegan Chocolate ice cream - dark, rich, and amazing. Also samples the Mexican Chocolate. S'mores, Snickers and Butterfinger Fudge were also on the docket... More
