This ice cream is exceptional. It's not that you just enjoy it in the moment...it has an amazing aftertaste that lingers in your brain for days... My favorites have to be Goat cheese with honey and Earl grey. Wish I lived closer, so I could enjoy it more often!

Nice modern ice cream shop with unique flavors. Took the kids after Science City for a cool treat. Tons of flavors to choose from and you are welcome to try them first. I ended up getting the Bananas foster but also liked the coffee and strawberry. My boys loved the dark chocolate. Very good ice cream, we will be back!... More

Unique, but not weird, flavors! Love that it is (almost) all GF! We have enjoyed Christopher Elbow chocolates for years and just learned about the ice cream on our recent visit to KC. So glad we drove just a few short blocks from the Plaza to give it a try. Our party of 7 probably tried every ice cream flavor... More

Staff was very friendly and allowed us to taste multiple flavors without feeling annoyed. A bit pricey but the two scoops was more than enough to satisfy my fix. I would recommend a single scoop for the lil ones as I made a mistake and didn't realize you could order single scoops and ended up wasting a whole lot of... More

Be sure to ask for samples for some of the flavors-- they're surprisingly intense. The fresh mint chocolate flake has the aroma and taste of fresh mint--not mint flavoring. The roasted strawberry takes berry intensity to a whole new level. Unimaginably delicious ice cream!

We had a taste for ice cream. The staff was courteous and pleasant even though I had know idea which flavor. So they let you taste as many as you want. A little pricey but very good. The Cherry with Chocolate was delicious.

Kind of pricey, but you get what you pay for. Everything is so rich, that a little goes a long way. Be sure to get some samples! :)

If you've ever had Jeni's ice cream then you'll know what to expect from Glacé. Wonderful flavors. You can sample everything. Try the goat cheese and cherry if they have it. It's like cherry cheesecake. They are knowledgeable about gluten and other allergens. In addition to goat cheese and cherry, I had honey lavender. All I can say is it... More

Employees were patient with smiles, samples, and descriptions of the unique flavors. Don't miss the goat cheese and honey, however, all flavors were so good. Hard to decide!

Lactose intolerance means usually being bummed out at ice cream places -- but not at Glace. Their raspberry sorbet was very intensely flavored ... really rich, so even a smaller portion would have been enough (not that I was complaining). Worth a stop, with convenient parking in the back.
