With the last few weeks of summer coming up, it’s the perfect time to enjoy an icy treat. Within a short distance of Alexan West Highland, you’ll find a wildly popular establishment serving up tall scoops of sweet, delicious ice cream. Little Man Ice Cream has become somewhat of an icon, as the ice cream shop functions out of a gigantic, 28-foot tall cream can. This nostalgic joint will be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

About Little Man Ice Cream

Little Man opened on July 4, 2008, and has been serving the community delicious ice cream ever since. They pride themselves on being able to share vintage nostalgia with the Denver area, especially as the city evolves and changes. This ice cream shop hoped to be the neighborhood’s favorite joint, but it’s quickly grown into an iconic Denver landmark.

Ice Cream Menu

The menu features cups, cones, sundaes, splits, and drinks. Enjoy a decadent brownie alongside your ice cream, or request that your scoop is turned into a tasty ice cream sandwich. Little Man offers a selection of toppings, including hot fudge, sprinkles, and cherries, allowing you to perfect your scoop.

The ice cream shop has a huge variety of flavors including a great selection of vegan options. Selections will vary daily, but patrons highly recommend the Salted Oreo and the Mexican Chocolate! Others swear by the Orange Creamsicle, but the options are truly endless.


The vibe here is friendly, relaxed, and fun. Note that there’s an express lane to the left for certain orders, so check the menu before getting in line! Little Man also has patio seating covered with umbrellas, but it is limited. They also host live events in the cobblestone plaza out front.

Locals know that when they see a gigantic line winding around the block, it’s for Little Man. Expect a crowd on hot days and the weekends. Luckily, this ice cream shop stays open past midnight, so you’ll always have time for dessert!
