“An awesome ice cream experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This place is a must try when your in town. They make great ice cream, and they have many awesome flavors. I tried the Salted Carmel - and it was to die for. Also tried a spicy cherry chocolate too. It had a great heat at the end. Nice folks run this place and their team is great to chat with.

“Excellent Homemade Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Do not miss Third Bowl if you like ice cream. Don't let the flavors discourage you - you can sample them prior to buying. They do have some unusual mixtures, but they are actually great!

“Trying too hard for extreme flavors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

This place has an incredibly friendly staff and welcoming environment, however their flavors seemed to be trying too hard to be creative. A number of the options had chili's or cayenne in them, which in ice cream kind of takes the fun and refreshment out of eating it. I was hoping for a few more solid flavor options instead of pushing the limits on every single flavor. I will go back but also hope that there will be more flavors that are creative not just over the top for the sake of being over the top.

“off the wall ice cream flavors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

if you are tired of the usual ice cream flavors, this is your place. Unusual combinations of flavors that you would not think of like pineapple habanero (my favorite). I go there every time I am in CB. recommend.

“Even in the cold you want to eat this ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Did not matter that it was freezing cold, we all couldn't wait to eat Third Bowl fresh and creatively flavored ice creams! The salted caramel and honey lavender were our favorite flavors! Do not miss this extravagant pleasure!
