I live in the area of Little Man Ice Cream and the summer lines kill me! Why are the lines so freakin' long?! Because they have amazing, creamy, unique-flavored ice cream. My favorites so far are their beer ice cream batches. I like that they use seasonal ingredients and cater towards the Denver beer drinking crowd!

It's not the ice cream, although the ice cream is good. It's a summertime, feel good event. It's the scene and the happy people working there. And,it's summertime and the line could go around the block for this stuff. Very glad I had a medium cup of vanilla and maple walnut with red sprinkles.

Yes, we stood in line for 15 minutes but it was a beautiful day so it was not a problem. When you waiting for good ice cream people are generally happy! We tried blackberry cardamom, chocolate, peach cobbler, and french toast; we were each happy with our choices. And the good thing is that Little Man Ice Cream has committed... More

First off, there will be a line. It's part of the deal and once you have the ice cream you'll see why. Went on a Sunday night and had wonderful time hanging outside and eating some ice cream on their nicely lit patio. Friendly staff who don't rush you and let you sample any ice cream you want. Definitely put... More

The building makes for great vacation photos. I appreciated that they had vegan options and interesting sorbets beyond the usual raspberry-lemon variety. Friendly service.

Yes, there is always a long line. Yes, it is very, very well worth it. Even being lactose intolerant I absolutely love the varieties they offer and gladly suffer for it later. The ingredients are always fabulous! They make ice cream out of flavors you would never think to put together and they just work! This is a must stop... More

Long lines is part of the experience. Ice cream is delicious and worth the wait!! Denver has lots of great outdoor good places and this is one of them!

After reading the reviews we fully expected to stand in a huge, long line... which we did. Not a problem. We saw that there was a shorter line for a few different kinds of ice cream, but we passed it by thinking that we would have those choices plus more. Seems like a reasonable assumption. But we were very wrong.... More

This was probably our fourth visit to Little Man, a highlight of our all too infrequent trips to Denver. I couldn't believe a flavor called Salted Oreo could be as good as it is. It was not on the list for our second and third visits, and although their other flavors are great, they don't compare to that signature choice.... More
