Best gelato (and ice cream) in town. Super fresh and homemade. Their flavors actually taste like the things they're supposed to taste like because they really are made with them. I love the seasonal flavors like Peppermint Bark and Gingerbread. My mom loves the lemon raspberry gelato (actual lemons they squeeze in the store and actual raspberries!). My dad likes the richer flavors like Death by Chocolate and Banana Caramel Crunch. My wife's favorite right now is the new Aztec Chocolate (choc. with cinnamon and cayenne pepper). My favorite in the summer is Chocolate Raspeberry Truffle. I eat ice cream all the time, and after getting addicted to Glacier, I don't want to ever waste my calories on something that was made in a factory or whose flavor came out of a can or syrup again. t'll ruin all other ice cream for you.
Anyway, it's a great local business that's family-owned and unique to Colorado. The inside is WAY nicer than other ice cream stores. They have bookshelves and comfy chairs and a fireplace (which is nice in the winter). They also have an enclosed outdoor plaza with grass and rocks and space to play. It's also the only ice cream shop in town with a decent view of the mountains. They have coffee and espresso drinks, too, but I don't drink coffee. It's roasted locally, though, and they use it in the coffee flavors, which is cool.
