There are plenty of ice cream parlors in Estes Park. This is the only one we visited so I cannot say that it is the best. But they all emphasize that the rice cream is homemade. We had a couple of cones and I found the mint and chip to be very tasty. And they provided generous scoops. One cone... More

This shop is the sister shop of the Hayley ice cream in Estes as well, so they are serving the same flavors. Unfortunately, the price I paid for a double scoop waffle cone was too much for what I got. The waffle cone, while made there daily, was very thin and easily crackable, while the first flavor, Turtle was really... More

Wow...this place is great. The ice cream is AWESOME and the best waffle cone I've ever had. Lots of homemade candy as well. Definitely worth a stop.

I had the tiger stripe ice cream with the peanut butter cone and it was wonderful. That peanut cone!! It was the best cone I've ever had.

Cones were delicious. There were many ice cream flavors to choose from. While it was a bit pricey, it is in line with other shops of this kind in Estes Park.

I visited with my family, and we all agreed that this place had the BEST and FRESHEST taffy we had ever had. Tons of flavor options, with a free sample of a flavor of the day. I was more in the mood for ice cream and tried several before settling on black raspberry and chocolate. The black raspberry was very... More

Several of our party opted for shakes for dessert our second night in town. The shakes were delicious, and even the smallest size was a lot to consume. We all enjoyed our separate flavors. A few others of the party opted for ice cream in a bowl to share, and enjoyed their treat. They also sell saltwater taffy that some... More

This place offers a wide variety of cones, waffle and cake, and dipped in a variety of toppings. The ice cream itself was okay, but could have been a little colder. I like it firmer, and this was somewhat soft. But my friend liked it that way, and she was very happy with hers, so it's all to your own... More

Employees were very pleasant and hustled to keep the crowd moving. The store is fairly small and people were shoulder to shoulder since it was busy. The cone selection was good with 16 plus selections of dipped cones to flavored cones to choose from. The IceCream selection is the same as many other hard ice cream stores, with roughly 20... More

I tried both Hayley's ice cream and this place during my week stay at Estes park and I'd have to say this ice cream was much better. It is just as pricey as Hayley's but the cones are really delicious and they offer many different varieties and flavors to pick from. Would return
