Had some tasty ice cream in their waffle cone. Very tasty! However, they grabbed the cone bare handed! Nasty! I have no clue where your hands have been. I'm sure you can afford gloves...

Very good homemade ice cream. They had a wide selection and what I sampled was very good. They had awesome looking fresh donuts too.

The ice cream is made on site and there are a variety of flavors. There are also non dairy/gluten free options made from coconut or almond milk. There is seating inside or you can walk outside and sit next to the creek. You can have disposable dishes or use reusable ones. This is a great ice cream place!

Loved the coffee toffee and strawberry chip ice cream. For $4.00, my scoops were generous and delicious. Two big thumbs up for Third Bowl.

Nice selection of ice creams, all made in house. They also have fresh made doughnuts. All very flavorful and served with a smile by the friendly staff.

the ice cream at this place simply didn't taste right. Texture was odd also. I did not feel well after eating here, although I can't say whether that was caused by the ice cream or the meal which preceded it. Would never go back.

We visited Crested Butte on the 4th of July and stopped into Third Bowl. The single-scoop portions were generous and the flavors were heavenly. Try the cinnamon/cayenne/honey ice cream... it's to die for!

This review is by my nine year old who is an ice cream connoisseur. He says cowboy coffee is fantastic because it has such a strong but sweet flavor. There are so many great flavors! It's a must visit every time!
