A must visit place if you're in Crested Butte. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is fun! With so many funky flavors, you're sure to find a new favorite. Handmade, custom flavors using fresh ingredients. They even have dairy free options! Highly recommend visiting!

Excellent homemade ice creams, too many to choose from. They have non-dairy items. Doughnuts before they run out. Upstairs for those who have trouble climbing stairs.

The new location is at 2nd and Elk, on the North East corner, upstairs, you enter from Elk. The new location is much larger, this place is phenomenal. Ice Cream and Donuts, super yummy.

Just a great little ice cream shop. All home made - great choices and flavors. Try something unique Upstairs but out back by the river is a great little sitting area

Maybe not 32 flavors, but BR doesn't have most of them. Treat yourself. Also has a good cup of coffee.

We came in late right before they closed. The two young ladies working were sweet and patient with us since this was our first time visiting. They have us plenty of samples. Everything tastes delicious. I decided on the pineapple upside down ice cream and my husband got two scoops: cowboy coffee and coffee stout. He raved about both. Mine... More

Third Bowl is a truly unique restaurant. Special soups and dishes that are interesting and good. The Coconut carrot soup was out of this world good. This is a great spot to sit and enjoy diverse flavors and relax. Good service and reasonable prices.

We hunted this place down when we were in Crested Butte last week. Definitely a "must go" for dessert when you're in CB. Comfortable, relaxed environment. Friendly staff. Tasty homemade ice cream with unique flavors. I got the Sweet Potato Casserole and was highly satisfied!

Fresh real and really good. Unusual and regular flavors. It's not your usual ice cream place. You just gotta try their homemade flavors. It's a real treat.
