“Hand-made ice cream”

Little Man Ice Cream is named after the founder’s father, Peter Tamburello (Little Man). Although small in stature to those who knew him, he was big in heart. Making a difference in the world was his legacy. Little Man Ice Cream is Paul’s way of keeping his father’s legacy resilient. Inspired by vintage Coney Island hot dog-shaped stands, business is conducted within a twenty-eight foot tall, 14,000 lb. cream can. Little Man Ice Cream is all about the EXPERIENCE! The customer’s experience is one of pure nostalgia nestled in the 21st Century. Little Man Ice Cream builds on the time honored tradition of the neighborhood ice cream store. In the 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s, unique American food concepts like donuts, hot dogs, or ice cream were celebrated and memorialized by roadside monuments built to expand on the food experience itself. If you could enjoy a great hot dog… in a forty-foot-long hot dog, how could it get any better?! The Little Man experience is a successful reminiscent of these eras. Little Man has created the experience of vintage Route 66 and town squares, county fairs and amusement parks. From the great flavors of homemade ice creams & hand-crafted malts, to the smell of fresh waffle cones cooked on site, mixed with the music of classic cartoons, all in a setting reminiscent of the past—it is Little Man’s goal develop competitive advantage by engaging all of the customer’s senses.

Little Man is a definite staple of Denver. The building in itself is really cute. As for the ice cream, they always give out enormous scoops. And these scoops never disappoint; they're thick and really tasty! The variety of flavors are unique and really fun, too! The Mexican chocolate and the blueberry cinnamon are just some of my favorites. And oh, don't be fooled by the huge line. It moves really quick and you'll be served your perfect frozen treat in no time! :)

Traveling across country for a business/family trip and decided to do an ice cream stop in each state. This wS Colorados. 9 stops later and I will tell you they have the best Salted Caramel Ice cream. Very kind people, let us try nearly the whole menu. Lots of seating, we were there right after it opened.

I went to this ice cream shop during a cross country road trip, it was pretty good... But being the ice cream connoisseur that I am, I have definitely had better ice cream (McConnel's in Santa Barbara and Gunthers in Sacramento.) One note: The horchata is NOT horchata flavored, it tastes more like a Cinnabon. And the purple cow flavor is magnificent!

We found this place and absolutely loved it! I had the salted Oreo in a waffle cone and it was delicious! This place has a great atmosphere and was so much fun on a summer afternoon.
