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.

Ok young or old truly decadent. From spicy chocolate ( a mummy always orders so kids won't eat it) to Fleur de Sel Carmel for the dads and then kids had mango. Just amazing.

Finding good ice cream is always in my agenda when I go to a new city. In Kansas City, Glacé Artisan Ice Cream is what caught my attention, and I refused to leave the city until I have tried their ice cream. We came in a few minutes after they opened on a Sunday. The employee who helped us obviously... More

My, oh my. Delicious. Excellent service. Yummy little tastings, but hard to choose!! I ended up with the Salted Pretzel and Peanut Butter Chocolate. My son had Salted Pretzel straight up. Next time I'm in this area, I'm heading to Glace and getting 3 scoops!

The unique flavors and wonderful tastes of this ice cream make this place worthy of a special trip to this part of town. In most cases one scoop is all you can eat as it is very rich ice cream. It is a small shop with some indoor seating and also some room to sit outside during fair weather.
