Staff was very friendly and allowed us to taste multiple flavors without feeling annoyed. A bit pricey but the two scoops was more than enough to satisfy my fix. I would recommend a single scoop for the lil ones as I made a mistake and didn't realize you could order single scoops and ended up wasting a whole lot of... More

Be sure to ask for samples for some of the flavors-- they're surprisingly intense. The fresh mint chocolate flake has the aroma and taste of fresh mint--not mint flavoring. The roasted strawberry takes berry intensity to a whole new level. Unimaginably delicious ice cream!

We had a taste for ice cream. The staff was courteous and pleasant even though I had know idea which flavor. So they let you taste as many as you want. A little pricey but very good. The Cherry with Chocolate was delicious.

Kind of pricey, but you get what you pay for. Everything is so rich, that a little goes a long way. Be sure to get some samples! :)

If you've ever had Jeni's ice cream then you'll know what to expect from Glacé. Wonderful flavors. You can sample everything. Try the goat cheese and cherry if they have it. It's like cherry cheesecake. They are knowledgeable about gluten and other allergens. In addition to goat cheese and cherry, I had honey lavender. All I can say is it... More

Employees were patient with smiles, samples, and descriptions of the unique flavors. Don't miss the goat cheese and honey, however, all flavors were so good. Hard to decide!

Lactose intolerance means usually being bummed out at ice cream places -- but not at Glace. Their raspberry sorbet was very intensely flavored ... really rich, so even a smaller portion would have been enough (not that I was complaining). Worth a stop, with convenient parking in the back.

The ice cream was really good, and there were some great unique flavors. We tried the chocolate, cinnamon, salted pretzel, and lemongrass and ginger. (Chocolate was the favorite.) Also it was a nice short walk from the Plaza, if you are out that way.

Glace is great for ice cream. It has delicious flavors. Before you purchase one, you can request a sample. That way, you won't be surprised.

I love the ice cream here. It was recommended to us by our food tour guide when we visited Christopher Elbow. The ice cream it's delicious. I always get the banana foster and the tropical sorbet because I like passion fruit. I highly recommend this place to everyone.
