    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Worth the hype & line. Favorites: garam masala, red bean, cardamom. Vegan chai is actually very good.

    Vegan ice cream is coconut based, so you have to like coconut a lot. Otherwise, try the salted butterscotch.
  • Paul M.
    You can't go wrong here. (Biscuits and jam ice cream? Yes.)

    Excellent selection of ice-creams. Not to sweat with just the right amount of flavor.

    Must try the lemon and lime sorbet. Nice and tart. All of the ice cream is great though.

    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.

    Try the Thai Iced Tea. It has Thai tea leaves and condensed milk in it.

    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.

    Ever had a real Thai Iced Tea? This is the just as awesome ice cream version.

    The hoppy brownie and salted butterscotch are highly recommended in a waffle cone.
