“A little underwhelmed”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

After reading all of the reviews I was a little underwhelmed with this ice cream. We went one night and had salted oreo, chocolate and caramel popcorn. The chocolate was good, the salted oreo was VERY salty (and I salt everything) and the caramel popcorn's flavor was good until you got a soggy piece of popcorn. Not sure how you can keep the popcorn from getting soggy in ice cream but maybe that goes to show that not everything should be in ice cream---maybe it would be better crushed as a topping. Anyway, I wouldn't return. I thought Bonnie Brae had better ice cream.

“Where have you been my whole life!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Perfection in a cone or in a dish. Little Man is BIG in flavor choices and style. This is a must try.
Sorry to say it, but if you are out to dinner in the Hi-Lo area, pass on dessert and go to Little Man for dessert instead.

“Fun”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

We visited Little Man Ice Cream and had a great time. It's not really a restaurant. It is really more like a very wonderful ice cream stand. The long line was full of nice people and the ice cream was cheap but good.

“Spot on flavors!”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This was such a great ice cream spot! We went during the day on a Monday and there was no line. The guy working let us try as many of the flavors as we wanted before buying. The single scoop is gigantic, so go for the single. They let you do your single scoop half and half if you want two different flavors. I went for strawberry balsamic gelato and chocolate banana gelato. I have never tasted a chocolate banana ice cream type product that tasted like a fresh banana! So delicious! My husband went with half a scoop of salted oreo and half a scoop of salted caramel fudge, which were also incredible! I think that normally the atmosphere would be great, however there was some construction going on next door which made it a little loud. We opted to eat our ice cream in the park across the street.
