They have the best steamed milk we have ever tasted and the home made fudge is to die for!! This is a family tradition for us, my kids beg to go numerous... More

This is by far the best tasting and best made ice cream in Estes Park! Had my sister and her kids visit us, her 2 and my 2 kids had fun picking out their flavors! I also got to choose an "adult" flavor of ice cream! An irish Cream! Yummy! Plus they have an assortment of fudge, chocolates, caramel corn,... More

Storefront real estate on this strip is expensive, so this store has made the best of a bad situation by designing a walk-through ice cream and snack shop. The ice cream is excellent, made from milk from cows about a half an hour away, and the shop is filled with all sorts of other cool snacks. The seating inside is... More

There is a little coffee shop in the back of this ice cream shop that is worth stopping off at. One of the best places in town for a good cup of coffee.

The ice cream and popcorn was delicious. On top of that, the gentlemen warmed up some milk for my one year old daughter who was not feeling well and did not charge me. Great customer service! Will stop by every time we visit. Thank you.

I'm in Estes Park a lot due to the nature of my work and each time we are in town I cannot pass up the chance to get their Huckleberry ice cream. It's honestly the best I've ever had. I saw some posts about unfriendly service or the staff not being engaged but truly I've never had anything but a... More

This is the place to hit if you're looking for chocolates. The prices are about the same compared to other places in town. Long narrow store with not much standing room but there is seating behind the store. The IceCream selection is OK as well.

My family and I stopped in and some got ice cream, some purchased fudge, and some of us got cappuccino. The quality was fine, but the attitude was not. Don't get me wrong, the staff was not surly, but they weren't welcoming either. Rather, they seemed to reluctantly wait on their custimers

We was just walking through the store and saw that they sold home-made ice cream. My wife had a scoop of coconut and me (being greedy) had two scoops, Nutella and butter pecan. I would not recommend the butter pecan but the coconut and the Nutella was great.
