Sort of Silverton-style, rustic-old, decor invites patrons to head to the back for ice cream. Flavors listed on a large blackboard on the wall may or may not be what's in the 5 gallon cans of ice cream in the freezer which are not marked. No vanilla. (No apology.) Chocolate chip, fair. Mint chocolate, very good. Vanilla with fudge marble,... More

Stopped in for some ice cream and decided to try the sundae. The only problem with it was to eat quickly enough before the giant mound of different flavor ice creams in the bowl melted down over the side. All of the ones that I tried were good as were the samples that I tasted from my companion's bowl. Worth... More

Walked in for some candy and ice cream and was met by a "stoned" young man behind the counter. He couldn't even tell me what kind of candy was displayed on the bottom of the case. Not that it really mattered when I saw a dozen black flies inside the candy case having a meal on the candy. OMG can... More

We went one night for ice cream after a very hot day. The selections were excellent and the service was very good and friendly. The atmosphere was great. We liked it so much we kept going back that week.

This is our favorite place in Ouray to get a substantial ice cream cone at a fair price. We love the flavor offerings and our favorites are Dulce Leche and coffee chip. Mmmmm.

We tried 2 ice cream companies on Main St. in Ouray. Would have to say this one came in second best although it was quite good. We were seeking a hot fudge sundae. They didn't have all the components in stock, but we improvised and had a very tasty dessert.

Ice cream looked old and yucky....we walked out. The owners closed the door in the face of our friends who hadn't made it in yet..and it was 30 minutes before closing time that was posted. We left and went down the street and had great dessert!!

Measly selection and empty shelves. I fear the place is losing money, so they are hesitant to stock anything. Candy was tasteless. Worst I've ever had, and I'm an easy sell on chocolate. Somebody needs to buy the place and put more effort into running it that the current owners are. Don't waste your time.

We went after walking down main street for ice cream. The other ice cream shop had a lot of people, so we decided to try this one. Good selection of ice cream my husband ordered a "single" what he got was a sugar cone with THREE scoops of ice cream! I decided to order a kids size, just two scoops!... More

My boyfriend and I went here to explore and there were hardly any candy choices. They were very rude and starred us down with scowls until we ordered. We got some drinks and chocolate covered cherries but that's it. Turns out looking at the bottles we realized my drink was expired by 7 months and my boyfriends was expired by... More
