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.

This Third Bowl makes great, creative ice cream. Tastings readily available. Seating upstairs and take out pints and quarts. My only argument is with the price tag!

After supper out we swung by The Third Bowl for ice cream. They hand make all flavors and have quite an imagination in their flavor selection. Don't judge by the flavor name or ingredients as they're all really good. It's worth stopping in.

We had a fabulous day hike and couldn't wait to treat ourselves to the yummy ice cream of Third Bowl! Worth every calorie! The super servers allowed us plenty of "tastes" to determine our favorites! Really great ice cream and treats- the cinnamon rolls looked amazing!!!
