This place has gone out of business just recently so if you want any homemade ice cream, the only place we could find it was at La Cocina. We ended up having ice cream in Ouray instead.

Great milkshakes but i wish they didnt just use sirup to flavor them. If you have kids this a must. Kids love all the candy they can get their hands on here. The food is forgetable and greasy

Went here with the family, and it's a fun, throwback candy shop. Had a delicious chocolate fudge sundae there, and the kids got lots of candy that can't be found at the supermarket. A fun atmosphere for kids, and surprisingly good food for adults makes The Sweet Life a must visit while in Telluride.

Well worth the try if you are looking for a quick treat. We only had the heath bar flavor ice cream, but it was great.

We stopped in for a couple of scoops and neither was anything to write home about. We had a scoop of blueberry and a scoop of pumpkin pie.

I had a delicious egg salad sandwich with onion rings! Kills a diet, but it was very good. The cupcakes were yummy too!
