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.

Ice cream was very good with very interesting flavors. And quite affordable too. Staff was friendly, we didn't feel hurried when we wanted to try a few flavors.

I normally do not write reporter, but I would not recommend this ice cream to anyone. Has no taste ... pure sugar. Any ice cream shop overland park you can taste better ice cream or gelato.

The ice cream here is fresh, delicious and not the usual. It reminded us of Jeni's and that is high praise indeed. Prices are reasonable for the quality.

Was in KC over the weekend, craved some good ice cream/gelato. I found it! Glace is a small place, a few tables inside and a little patio out. So many flavors, it was hard to choose! Spiced Dark Chocolate or Salted Pretzel? Goat Cheese w/Wildflower Honey or Caramelized Pineapple? Maybe 20 flavors all together. I finally picked Bananas Foster and... More

Stopped by for a sweet treat at this trendy ice cream spot that prides itself on being artisanal, fresh, and local. The mint chip ice cream was okay, but I wish I had gotten the gelato next door at Spin Pizza instead!
