There's usually a line and it's worth the wait. Deliciousness!!! If they have salted anything go for it. I also love the rocky road. Honestly, all flavors are amazing.

What could be better than serving ice cream out of a huge milk can? The milk can is about 30 feet tall with serving windows circling its bottom. The homemade ice cream is great (and reasonably priced) - limited in number of flavors with some unusual choices. The staff scrambles quickly and is pleasant to boot. Another bonus is the company's Scoop to Scoop program matching every purchased scoop of ice cream with a cup of rice/beans to a needy community. Good for a photo-op and watching little kids' eyes light up.

Found Little Mans on here and decided to try it out. Great little spot for everyone and delicious icecream. The salted Oreo and salted peanut butter cup were delicious!

Little Man is a staple of Denver, but I agree with some other reviewers that it's not the best ice cream in the city. The building is cute, and the ice cream is pretty good, and worth waiting in line for (which you will have to do if you go on a summer night!). Some of the flavors are unique, but almost a little too unique, to the point where there was only one chocolate option (not good for chocoholics like myself!). In general, I liked the whole vibe of Little Man, and it's worth going to for sure.

Little Man is a Denver institution - ask many locals for their favorite Denver ice cream spot and they will tell you Little Man, however I think there are better options available and that part of the appeal is simply the location, the interesting building (its in a milk can) and historic preference. This is overall a cute spot with local kids scooping your cone. On summer nights it typically has a long line but this moves fast. Servings are a decent size but this can vary a bit based on your server. The salted oreo is delicious, but I tend to think many of their other flavors are a bit of a let down. They don't have much of a selection for sorbet or sherbet either. If I had a choice I would far prefer Sweet Cow's new spot in the Highlands on 32nd st (about a mile away with a parking lot in front - their ice cream is amazing) or Spuntino (around the corner on 32nd about a half mi away, an amazing little italian cafe with the town's best gelato hands down - try the dark chocolate salted caramel) or Sweet Action down on broadway. Happy eating!!
