So good!

Finding good ice cream is always in my agenda when I go to a new city. In Kansas City, Glacé Artisan Ice Cream is what caught my attention, and I refused to leave the city until I have tried their ice cream. We came in a few minutes after they opened on a Sunday.

My, oh my. Delicious. Excellent service. Yummy little tastings, but hard to choose!! I ended up with the Salted Pretzel and Peanut Butter Chocolate. My son had Salted Pretzel straight up. Next time I'm in this area, I'm heading to Glace and getting 3 scoops!

The unique flavors and wonderful tastes of this ice cream make this place worthy of a special trip to this part of town. In most cases one scoop is all you can eat as it is very rich ice cream. It is a small shop with some indoor seating and also some room to sit outside during fair weather.

cannot believe the "close your eyes" & taste the pure flavor combinations. The combinations you wouldn't think blend, really make this shop unique

Give me Baskin Robbins . If u like a very creamy, light product though u will probably like this. The "artisan" who develops the product has some unusual flavors but u can have a taste so u will know. U can get cones or cups.

My sister and brother-in-law brought us here when we were visiting them from out of state. They had so many original flavors and all 5 of us really enjoyed what we had! The service was great! The lady behind the counter was very helpful and patient with us as we tried to decide what we wanted, and she gave us... More

My wife and I love ice cream and Glace is the highest ranked place we could find in KC area. It is only ok, not good, not bad, and not gelato. The flavor was genuine but mild. The server was quite annoyed to offer tastes.

While out and about in the plaza area decided to try glacé based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. I tried the salted pretzel and white peach sorbet and both we delicious but decided on the sorbet. It was light and not overly sweet. My husband got the Madagascar vanilla with carmel and dark chocolate shavings. It was... More

For the ice cream snob, this is the place to be. It's simple and wonderful. Never had a bad flavor or experience. Try it! Christopher Elbow is a genius.
