    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Loveland Frog is a great example of the many interesting shops you will find in historic downtown Loveland. Here you can buy annual or perennial flowers, potted herbs, coffee, water and snacks. I had an ice cream bar here, and also picked up a free card which tells the legend of the famous and elusive Loveland Frog.

    The shop operator was a very nice young woman and I admired her enterprise.
