If you haven't discovered Kansas City's own Christopher Elbow artisan chocolates--those beautiful jewels that look too pretty to eat until you try one--you're in for a real treat with his ice cream shop. Just like his chocolates, these are infused with amazing, pure flavors. Interesting...More

The long line into the street the night we went was well worth the wait for this designer ice-cream. The four of us each had a different flavor and all were good. The ice cream is by famed chocolatier Christopher Elbow.

We've been to Glace several times. The creativity of the flavors is beyond belief. Even a semi-"normal" ice cream bar with Christopher Elbow chocolate causes us to swoon. Worth breaking a diet for. :)

This is not Ben & Jerry's folks - it is soooooooooooooo much better. This is gourmet ice cream at its best. They cooperate with the Roasterie and Boulevard Brewing for local pairings that are delicious. Try the espresso or Madagascar vanilla with salted caramel topping....More

Sweet baby Jesus where has this place been all my life. Butternut squash ice cream? Pineapple cilantro? Salted pretzel? I think I am in love. The fact that they let you get two flavors for the small sized cup is really awesome as well. If...More
