Awesome setting. Good neighborhood w a park across the street. Good ice cream. The giant milk building of courses the draw. The only thing I think they could do to make it cooler is to install some old smiley glasses windows midway up and display all the stored goodies (herseys, sprinkles, candies, etc) to those waiting in line!

Yes, it was <40 in Denver; no, we didn't care. This place has, hands down, some of the best ice cream I have ever put in my mouth. My son agrees. I recommend looking for an online menu before you go, because their ice cream names are a little nontraditional, and I didn't immediately notice descriptions. At the risk of... More

Best ice cream around! There is always a wait but it is totally worth it. Awesome for all ages but the kids absolutely love it.

Little Man is a Denver Icon! No visit to Denver is complete without having ice cream here. The best time to go is in the Fall when surrounding restaurants have outdoor entertainment! You do have to stand in line, even in a snow storm so be prepared! However, the ice cream is totally worth it!

It is never too late for a good taste of ice cream in winter. Loved the milk bottle shape look. Good choices of flavors to choose from. They catered for kids and adults.

This is a cute little ice cream stop and the ice cream is very tasty! However they only offer outdoor seating and no real covering from the weather should it rain. It actually started raining on us and there was no where to go. We just had to get wet since we had to park down the street.

Loved this place! We went mid-afternoon thinking there may not be a line but there was still a wait - just a testament to how good it is! They had a good variety of different flavors and I loved that they had some non-dairy options as well. I ordered the vegan banana chip which was amazing..I have no idea how... More

I couldn't understand why the line to get ice cream was so long, until I got my ice-cream. This was delicious, definitely wroth the wait.

The cream part of ice cream is back! No processed, fake sugar flavor here folks. These treats are homemade and you can really taste it. Unique flavor combinations created with fresh ingredients is surely why this place has a nearly constant long line. Don't worry though, it moves fast and there is plenty of seating.

I waited twenty-three minutes for ice cream at this whimsical shop shaped like a milk can. I type that, not with dread, but with delight. I didn't even know Little Man Ice Cream existed; now I can't forget that it does. On my way to dinner, I saw the line and asked my server what the line that never seemed... More
