Love it! Rich and creamy ice cream. They change flavors every day so check the website for daily menu. The only one they carry all the time is salted butterscotch and it's amazing! Very small inside but there always seems to be a place to sit. Parking is crazy, but there's a lot right behind it that you can pay... More

Amazing ice cream and great service. There was a long line when we got there but lots of staff working so it was a short wait. I would highly recommend checking it out.

Visited quickly on our way to the Nuggets game. Sweet Action offers a pretty decent selection of ice cream. Some unique. Location is a little sketchy late afternoon if you have kiddos but we'd certainly go back again.

Amazing flavors that will be sure to please. From sweet to savory, this place is not afraid to experiment. My favorite flavor so far was the Thai Iced Tea, with the Grahm Masala(sp?) a close second. But they all look AMAZING!!!! And most of the ones I've tried have been. If you ever find you self in the area be... More

Don't let the lines discourage you. It moves fast as there are sometimes up to 7 people working behind the counter. Inventive flavors (Stranahan's whisky) and delicious ice cream brings customers back again and again. They typically have about 20 different flavors and they rotate different ones in every week. My wife practically lived here during her pregnancy.

I love this ice cream shop! The servers are friendly and knowledgeable, you can taste to your hearts delight, and the ice cream is delicious! The whiskey brittle and salted butterscotch are my favorite combination, and it's hard to branch out because it's just so dang good! But my son loves the cherry basil, and it is unusual and absolutely... More

This place has a great old school ice cream shoppe vibe but with very modern flavors which pairs nicely with the hipsters serving you ice cream. We went on an weekday evening and the line was out the door but it moves fast. They let you taste before you commit which helps to narrow down the numerous delicious concoctions available.... More

Grabbed this for dessert after dinner on Broadway. Very cool street to just walk and explore different shops. Tried the vietnamese coffee and it was delicious. You can sample before you buy also, which is helpful.
