Worth a stop when in Crested Butte. Waffle cones are really good so give them a try. Don't fall for two scopes. They are very generous so unless you just want a lot of ice cream, one scope is plenty. Texture is very close to home churned ice cream and they have a variety of unusual flavors. Stop by on your walk on Elk.

You can tell the ice cream is good before you order when you see there is a line all day and through the evening at Third Bowl. The homemade favors are interesting and unique. Our group had Mexican mocha, double chocolate, vanilla, snickerdoodle, and others. The non-dairy blueberry and cinnamon honey got rave reviews as well. We passed on the more unusual flavors which change daily. If you like a certain flavor, don't expect to find it again the next day. The homemade waffle cones were yummy also.

Great service, fun vibe, delicious small-batch ice cream, and the BEST house-made waffle cone I've ever had!

My pistachio ice cream was flavorful and fresh, though not as creamy as I've had elsewhere. The cone itself was addicting - it was unlike any waffle cones I've had and wasn't as light or airy, but it had an excellent crunch, mild sweetness, and a hint of butter which made the cone shine above all others!

The interior is small and most customers were savoring their treats outside in the nice weather. By 3PM on a summer Sunday, the crowds had steadied and we were 3rd in line. There was a sign saying the ice cream is made in small batches on-premise, and the tubs were all clearly labeled with the flavors. The flavors themselves were on the unique side (ie, grapefruit, PB&J, pineapple-habanero) and I was impressed that nearly a third of them were non-dairy. There was something for everyone.

Alas, I played it safe with the pistachio and ordered 1 scoop. The employee heaped a large ball of ice cream into my cone, then, with a twinkle in his eyes, clarified with me that 1 scoop was what I wanted. I confirmed. He proceeded to heap a second huge scoop on top of the first mound before handing it over to me with a grin. Now THAT is service.

They had a tent at the Arts Festival, with several flavors. I asked for the blueberry cookie ice cream. All is home-made, and naturally sourced. Only real ingredients here. It was yummy! (even if it did freeze my tongue).
