They handmake their ice creams (both traditional and vegan choices). I had the vegan rocky road and it was a rich chocolate full of flavor and fillings...even my non-vegan husband loved it.

The ice cream is great. The location on a hill with the milk jug roof is a great atmosphere. Just be prepared for long lines. But they have an express line that still gives you a choice of about six ice cream cones.

Incredible site and ice cream. Lovely this time of year with pumpkins. Met someone in line that drove 40 miles for their favorite flavor. Very fun for children.

The title says it all. This is the most famous Ice cream place I have ever visited. Everyone is talking about it. Try the salted caramel Oreo, you will,go back. It's an outside venue, probably not a winter place, and is in a great location. There are several,good restaurants in the area and a pedestrian bridge to the Coors field... More

The texture of the ice cream is soooo amazing!!! It has a chewy consistency.We got the birthday cake (highlight flavor of the night) and honey almond. Then walk down to the express lane (much shorter wait) and got space junkie (chocolate, raspberry, marshmallow, brownie bits) and cookie dough. So good!!!!!

This cute spot was a fun stop on our trip! The lines were extremely long, but worth the wait! Parking was a bit of an issue (there's a paid lot across the street, but free street parking is available if you're willing to walk) so plan accordingly if you're not familiar with the area.

This is a great place to go if you're exploring the Highland area of Denver. It's almost impossible to walk by it without being drawn in by the smell of waffle cones anyway. The ice cream is very good, and the staff is very friendly and nice.

If you like waiting in long lines while socializing with your fellow ice-cream fans then this is the place for you. Always crowded, very popular year-round. The ice cream is just average, but the place is a staple, so you can have the bragging rights.

There was a long line when we arrived. Took about 45 minutes to get to front of the line. Good ice cream and really trendy in Denver right not. Not sure if I would stand in line that long I had fussy children. Cute little setting.

This is an outside ice cream bar with delicious ever changing homemade ice cream flavors. The atmosphere at Little Man is a huge part of the fun. Standing in line is an experience, not just a tedious affair. Little Man has a schedule of activities through the summer and into fall. Check it out! There are movie nights, swing dance... More
