Delicious, Unique Ice Cream

Glace is definitely the place to go if you want some unique ice cream that tastes homemade (in the best possible ways). Just be willing to pay close to $4 for 1 scoop (up to two flavors).

Its a local owner who also owns and developed Elbow Chocolates in Kansas City. Wonder designer combination flavors, it is a little on the expense side of normal ice cream vendors. Located on the South side of the Country Club Plaza in a new developing neighborhood of new restaurants and high rise apartments, retail coming.

This cute pocket called South Plaza is up and coming. Take a trip down there for ice cream with the family or date night and stop by Glace. You will feel like you're out of town on vacation if you're a local like me. The best creamiest yummiest ice cream I've ever had. You will not be disappointed.

We loved this place, and cannot say enough good things about the selection of ice cream flavors and toppings. Anything salted caramel is exquisite. The creaminess of the ice cream was crazy...almost a custard, but not quite. It was simply the best I've ever had. However, goodness comes at a price. I would have been more comfortable paying $1.50-$2.00 less... More

Who knew you could take some of those flavors and turn it into a decadent ice cream. Glace can be a little pricey but it is well worth it. Stop by and try a few samples before you decide. You are bound to love a flavor that may sound a little off for ice cream but you will love it.

We stopped in for some ice cream while running around KC. There were several unique flavors of ice cream available - and tasting fresh corn ice cream was a first for me...it tasted just like fresh creamed corn, but cold! Both of us chose to try a black cherry float. Mine was made with sweet cream ice cream, and my... More

Christopher Elbow is famous for his artisanal chocolates. At Glace he puts the same level of creativity and imagination into his ice cream. Come and enjoy flavors you already love and experience new taste treats. Love the dark chocolate!

Finally got around to trying this ice cream. The flavors are unique and true to the descriptions. Most of us got a scoop of chocolate with caramel. Sooooo delicious. The lemon was also excellent. We went at night after eating at Spin pizza and there was a short line, but the staff were working very hard to keep things moving.... More

We were in Kansas City for a soccer tournament and decided to try one of the "best ice cream" places in the area before we left. Was definitely very tasty. A little pricey for the amount you get. A bit upscale for ice cream, but definitely some of the best ice cream I've ever tasted. I don't know if I'd... More
