“Delicious homemade ice cream”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Great little place to get homemade ice cream on a hot day in Crested Butte. The line was long, but it moved fast. The portions were huge for a single scoop and the price very reasonable for such a large serving. I had pistachio ice cream, which was packed with pistachio nuts which was great, but it tasted more like vanilla to me. It was delicious nonetheless. I had a taste of the Honey Lavender ice cream and that was heavenly! They also make shakes and sell locally baked cookies, that were delicious too. Totally recommend a stop there.

“Can't stay away!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We discovered Third Bowl on our trip to Crested Butte last summer. This time we ended up have a scoop 3 out of 4 nights! They have so many unique flavors to choose from each night and the quality is top notch. They have no problem providing you with as many sample tastes you request to find the right flavor for you. They also added "mini" waffle cones so you can get a mini or kid size scoop and get a waffle cone! Their portions were more than ample. We got mini scoops each time and it was plenty big to satisfy our ice cream craving. Third Bowl was always busy but they had enough people behind the counter to ensure you moved along quickly. If you're looking for a sweet treat while visiting Crested Butte, you have to make a trip to Third Bowl. You won't be disappointed.

“Best ice cream I've ever had!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

I'm not a big ice cream person. I heard this place was good but kept passing it by. Then at Gothic store I spied Honey- Lavendar ice cream and had to try it. It was awesome, and today I will go to the store for the salted caramel.

“Great ice creams!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Many different options: salted caramel, lavendar and honey, etc. Very convenient location. Hours are somewhat odd; it didn't open until 1:00 pm the day we tried to stop in.
