Chocolate peanut butter, that is all! No, seriously, well worth a visit since it's near the main shopping district and probably the best ice cream I've ever tasted. The chocolates are supposed to be awesome too but quite expensive (Elbow brand)

We came for a tasty treat and weren't disappointed. There are so many interesting flavors if you're feeling adventurous. But there are regular flavors like chocolate and vanilla too. They use fresh local ingredients. And it was just enough to satisfy without being too much.

Glace is not your average ice cream place. Here you will find flavors you would never imagine would go so well together. And for those who can't eat dairy, there are good sorbet options as well. The flavors vary by season, but you'll find something to satisfy your sweet tooth. The only drawback is it's hard to find a place... More

This shop features really deluxe ice cream in some exotic flavors. Beware how much you order as I couldn't chose between 2 flavors so ordered them both. They are large scoops and it was way too much for me to eat.

In town for a fun weekend and decided to have some ice cream. Workers were very friendly and let us try as many tastes as we wanted. Parking on street is limited but free parking around back. Glacé sits next to two small restaurants and all offer outdoor seating. Back to the ice cream-- absolutely celery smooth and creamy. Each... More

This ice cream is exceptional. It's not that you just enjoy it in the moment...it has an amazing aftertaste that lingers in your brain for days... My favorites have to be Goat cheese with honey and Earl grey. Wish I lived closer, so I could enjoy it more often!

Nice modern ice cream shop with unique flavors. Took the kids after Science City for a cool treat. Tons of flavors to choose from and you are welcome to try them first. I ended up getting the Bananas foster but also liked the coffee and strawberry. My boys loved the dark chocolate. Very good ice cream, we will be back!... More

Unique, but not weird, flavors! Love that it is (almost) all GF! We have enjoyed Christopher Elbow chocolates for years and just learned about the ice cream on our recent visit to KC. So glad we drove just a few short blocks from the Plaza to give it a try. Our party of 7 probably tried every ice cream flavor... More

Staff was very friendly and allowed us to taste multiple flavors without feeling annoyed. A bit pricey but the two scoops was more than enough to satisfy my fix. I would recommend a single scoop for the lil ones as I made a mistake and didn't realize you could order single scoops and ended up wasting a whole lot of... More

Be sure to ask for samples for some of the flavors-- they're surprisingly intense. The fresh mint chocolate flake has the aroma and taste of fresh mint--not mint flavoring. The roasted strawberry takes berry intensity to a whole new level. Unimaginably delicious ice cream!
