We've never had ice cream this good before. Very unique and delicious! Afterwards you'll have a settled tummy and have a fresh clean taste in your mouth. This place prides itself on fresh whole ingredients. They switch up the flavors from time to time so don't count on "your" flavor being available every time. But that's okay....you'll find something new... More

This place has lots of local flavors in their collections of creamy goodness. Christopher Elbow Chocolate, Roasterie Coffee and different spices and flowers, to name a few, can be served up in a cup, cone or shake. Pints are available for taking home.

Very light and fresh tasting! Our group tried lavendar-honey, fresh mint- chocolate flakes, and balsamic-strawberry. All were wonderful!

I always love to stop here and try the different ice creams. They are always very decadent and delicious. Quite expensive for the small amount you get, but worth the treat occasionally.

Glace' was a tip that I received from a resident of Kansas City who drives for Uber. This eatery is a bit out of the way, but really only about $5.00 Uber ride from my hotel. This is a simple environment with complete focus on the case of ice creams. I saw many unusual flavors including those that I chose:... More

It's not the cheapest ice cream place but it is better than your usual ice cream place. It has many flavors, some exotic. There are not too many seats/tables available, but even standing outside on the main street is quite refreshing.

The most delicious and imaginative ice cream that will ever melt in your mouth. Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl, Salted Pretzel, Orange Cream, Chocolate Chipotle Orange, and Orange Spice Tea are just a few of the flavors we recently sampled. Stop by and treat yourself you'll be in for a real surprise. A two scoop cup was $3.50 and the portion... More

Always a line for the delicious and varied ice cream choices, this is exceptional ice cream! Outside seating makes it great for a hot summer night walking the family pet. There are no bad choices of ice cream here, and it is worth the expense for the quality of the product.

I am 90% vegan so if I'm going to eat ice cream it had better be worth it! Glace, let me assure you, is worth it!! Good thing I don't live in KC anymore - I'm not sure I could be a vegan at ALL! Do the extra spurge and get the waffle cone. So many wonderful choices, it's hard... More

Goat cheese and wildflower honey. Yep. It was fantastic! and they had it there. However I ended up getting the lemon curd sundae which was salted pretzel ice cream with lemon curd and shortbread croutons on it. It was Awesome! Definitely a place to try.
