“Cool place, good ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

During my last visit to Denver (Sept 6-10, 2012), we stopped by Sweet Action. It's located in a hip/cool part of town and we saw all walks of life - all enjoying yummy ice cream. Nice place to hang out on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Try it out!

“Get some Sweet Action”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

You need to go there just to say you got some Sweet Action in Denver, but also go there because the ice cream is delicious. Unique flavor combos like whiskey brickle. Delicious!

“Homemade Icecream in every flavor you could think of”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

This place is a block from where I live. I finally visited it about six months ago. Now I'm a semi-regular. The flavors offered here are all made on site as are the waffle and sugar cones. There are vegan choices for those people who don't eat dairy. Flavors vary each week so it never gets boring to visit. Prices are a bit higher than regular ice cream but you're paying for fresh made products that will stagger your imagination.

“Fun flavors, friendly servers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Excellent ice cream with some crazy (good) flavors. At times the flavors can be too much (ginger) such that choosing one, as you must do if you just want one scoop, is difficult--some of them would pair well. If they offered a split single scoop that would be great, because two scoops is a lot of ice cream. Molasses based flavors, stout based flavors...the salted butterscotch was good but too blended together and uniform--I wanted chunks or passages of butterscotch. Overall a great ice cream place. Definitely lives up to the hype.

“Like homemade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

Their ice creams are all delicious, and taste rich and creamy, like a good ice cream should. A nice, eclectic mix of flavors that you won't necessarily see in the grocery. We tried a whiskey brickle, and a blackberry lavender, and enjoyed both.
