    Good ice cream. Very unique and tasty flavors with friendly staff. Seasonal flavors change all the time. I got white chocolate cinnamon and cinnamon gingerbread. Very thick and rich. 4/5

    The best ice cream and sorbet we found in all of Denver. The staff is friendly, and the owners are generous. And I believe everything in the shop is biodegradable. Awesome shop all the way around.

    Including the incredible Stranahan's Whiskey Brickle, featuring Colorado's own whiskey. But in the process, they've become a must-stop for all the hipsters heading out for a night on the town. Read more

    Inventiveness. Flavor. Pushing the limits of ingredients. Cool factor. Best logo, and in Denver's hippest neighborhood. There is no doubt. This IS the best ice cream in all of Colorado.

    Sweet Action has some of best ice cream I've ever had. They have really creative flavors like strawberry balsamic and sour cream & chives. Both are actually pretty good!

    Colorado Honey, Thai Iced Tea, Mint Chocolate Chip (especially in milkshake form), Horchata... Shit, they're all good! Try something unusual. Love all the ISO50/Tycho prints too.

    Featured on Unique Sweets TV show. They have a few vegan flavours (like japapeno lime) of ice cream out of the 500 flavours since they first started in 2009.

    Baklava ice cream was some of the best ice cream I have ever had, anywhere. Whiskey brickle is also not bad.
  • Shaun C.
    I had the blackberry lavender with biscuits and jam. Both were delicious. The biscuits and jam had chunks of biscuits. So good!

    Wow. The hazelnut brownie and green tea ice cream. Also at least sample avocado if they have. Tastes more like an avocado than an avocado somehow.

    Come in over St. Patrick' Day to get Guinness and Bailey's flavored ice cream. Do it up right and make a Carbomb Cone!

    Limoncello ginger and salted butterscotch. Scoops are huge, prices are low, and the window is made for sitting in and eating ice cream.

    Vegan ice cream is coconut based, so you have to like coconut a lot. Otherwise, try the salted butterscotch.

    Get a scoop of the Red Velvet ice cream on a regular cone (a sugar cone would be too sweet). DON'T try the donuts. They honestly suck - and I'm very indiscriminate with donuts. Might be grease flavor.

    they always have one or two vegan flavors. p.s. skip dairy queen for your ice cream cakes, go to sweet action and get a big ass ice cream cookie cake instead.
