We hunted this place down when we were in Crested Butte last week. Definitely a "must go" for dessert when you're in CB. Comfortable, relaxed environment. Friendly staff. Tasty homemade ice cream with unique flavors. I got the Sweet Potato Casserole and was highly satisfied!

Fresh real and really good. Unusual and regular flavors. It's not your usual ice cream place. You just gotta try their homemade flavors. It's a real treat.

My wife and I stopped in and tried the pumpkin caramel ice cream. It was delicious. All their ice creams are homemade and so flavorful. They also have enormous donuts, but we didn't try one of those. There is a nice outdoor seating area in the back with picnic tables by the little creek that flows through town.

Good locally produced ice cream. Some unusual flavors and old favorites. Craft produced. It is upstairs and not particularly accessible.

This cute ice cream shop is located 'upstairs' in a building near the main street . Third Bowl handmade ice cream and waffle cones made on site is a real gem of a find. Overwhelmed with the choices, I finally selected a dish of blackberry bergamont! Excellent and certainly different....they also offer more traditional flavors and non dairy choices are... More

Crazy ice cream flavors like Bourbon Bacon, to Honey Lavender, Mango Thai Basil, but also have some traditional flavors (mint chocolate chip, fudge ripple). Also have non dairy options. Its my favorite ice cream shop! Love it.

This is a wonderful ice cream place with unique, homemade flavors that change often. We were in town a week and visited probably 4-5 times! Great ice cream but they also have other desserts including big homemade doughnuts. Highly recommended!

Unique flavors of ice cream that are bountiful, but the ice cream is nothing special. Donuts are worth a try. Kind of expensive. We had a mini and a small ice cream and a donut for $25. We totally got ripped off when considering this in hindsight.
