A Special Outing for Amazing and Unique Flavors!

We have now visited Glace several times (especially after dinner on the Plaza). Their Dark Chocolate is a classic (Regular or Spiced)! On a recent visit, I tried Fresh Mint with Chocolate Pieces - WOW! The French Lavender smelled and tasted like the real thing. However, it was also a bit like... read more

The flavor selections here is better than anywhere. We have tried Glace a few times and have been consistently blown away by their creations. They are limited in their seating (quantity and quality) with 2 tables outside and 2 more inside. Its not really where you want to sit anyway. There is a nearby restaurant where you can sit or...

Great service, truly wonderful ice cream. The woman who helped us was, though extremely busy, entirely helpful and friendly and let us have whatever samples we wanted. Very small store, though, but that's OK, because we sat outside. My recommendations are the caramel (to DIE for) and the lemon curd. Great experience!

Glace is every bit as good as everybody says it is. I've been a huge fan of Murray's in Westport for my ice cream fix for years (and Murray's is amazingly good), but Glace blows the old favorite out of the water. What sets them apart is the flavor variety and inventiveness (the first time we hit Glace, we had... More

We dashed into this place right before it closed and managed to order a hodge podge of flavors. We tried a berry flavor with chocolate specks, the chocolate so rich and crisp and the berry such a full taste. The lavender flavor tasted like lavender, the mint chocolate tasted like mint fresh from the garden, with the same yummy chocolate... More

The most unusual and enjoyable flavor combinations for ice cream ever. A very small shop with little seating but who cares when you can have the very best ice cream you have ever tasted? A great place to visit for dessert after dinner at the Plaza.

What Else can you say about this artisan ice cream studio? It is truly remarkable and exhibits the talented vision of Christopher Elbow. We visited this joint one evening after dinner. Glacé has a modern, contemporary, minimalistic feel that showcases the ice cream flavors as you enter. My wife got a Carmel and lavender flavored ice creams. Both were amazing!... More

If you haven't discovered Kansas City's own Christopher Elbow artisan chocolates--those beautiful jewels that look too pretty to eat until you try one--you're in for a real treat with his ice cream shop. Just like his chocolates, these are infused with amazing, pure flavors. Interesting flavors, too, like goat cheese and honey, lavender, toasted coconut, plus some of the usual... More

The long line into the street the night we went was well worth the wait for this designer ice-cream. The four of us each had a different flavor and all were good. The ice cream is by famed chocolatier Christopher Elbow.

Great tasting ice cream and reasonable prices. Lots of different flavors to choose from. Just a short walk from the Plaza.
