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

My family of four came, and we had mixed success with wh we ordered. I got a salted Oreo shake - so salty it was undrinkable! (and I love my salt!). And this was blended with milk! Scared to think what the straight ice cream would be like. Would have returned it but line was a nightmare already and didn't... More

The flavors and combinations are very creative here. Everyone recommends the salted Oreo, however we found it too salty. I had banana which was delicious - real banana, not flavoring. Good quality ice cream and ingredients. The line was crazy long, so be prepared to wait any day of the week. The parking in the area can be hard to... More

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
