This by far is some of the best ice cream/ frozen custard I have ever had! The single track Avalanche and the thin mint Avalanche were amazing. Portions were good for the price but left you wanting more because it was so delicious!

Good root beer float and a raspberry vanilla and fudge avalanche. Walk up window, no seating, in the midst of all the happenings in town.

We had 4 in our party but the custard was great....no complaints. It was a little pricey but to be expected in this kind of town.

The owner is a very unique guy in himself. The custard is great; it's mixed with a topping and then served. I loved it.

Found this amazing place while walking thru Manitou Springs. We had the apple pie avalanche, whole piece of fresh pie mixed with creamy custard. My previous favorite was from Ted Drewes in St. Louis, but this tiny place blew them out of the water.

Couldn't find an ice cream place after being disappointed in not summiting pikes peak due to the winds. Had a good banana split and super orange Avalanche. Yes, this was creamy, rich custard, in vanilla and chocolate flavors!
