Cool looking retro ice cream parlor. Ice cream good but I literally told our server (after we asked a couple questions and she had served my daughter) "I'd like 2 scoops with a little less eye roll please". Not to mention the snarky whispering between the servers about several different customers a. That isn't really me - but I don't... More

A couple other guys and myself had dinner out together and at the end we said let's go to Bonnie Brae. In past summer nights we have done the same thing. Sitting out side enjoying the fading daylight. The ice cream is a tradition. It's great!

We LOVE ice cream. This is the go to place since forever. We really like Ben & Jerrys, Little Man, Josh & Johns, but Bonnie Brae trumps them. The atmosphere is nostalgic and the ice cream is bomb!! We recommend Bonnie Brae above all others.

Friends took our family here when we were in town visiting.

Local ice cream shop. A must go. A big assortment of flavors for a reasonable price! Wonderful. I got the chocolate shower and very good. The waffle cones are made fresh and quite wonderful. No wonder it's been around for so long..!!

OK, I'll admit. I didn't go to Bonnie Brae for vegan ice cream, but my husband tries to keep to a vegan diet, so Bonnie Brae is a place we can both go and be happy. I loved Bonnie Brae for its good old fashioned style of ice cream. The servers are friendly and the atmosphere is a throwback to... More

We love Bonnie Brae and go out of our way to visit there every trip to Colorado. It is in the trendy Wash Park area with tree lined streets, super fun restaurants & stores. It is just perfect on a hot afternoon to grab a cone and relax outside. The ice cream is made there and the shop has a... More

We got there at 10:45 am, 15 minutes before the shop opens and there was a line, but the wait was worth it. Great creamy ice cream with very unique flavors.
