Summer 2020 has definitely been a “I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream” kind of season, and July just happens to be NATIONAL ICE CREAM MONTH! Not that I needed a reason to have a scoop…or three, but it’s not a holiday I mind celebrating.
There are so many great ice cream spots in town, but I think the BEST ice cream shop in Denver right now is a local boutique spot on Colfax, called Smith+Canon Ice Cream Co.

Curt Peterson, the owner of Smith+Canon Ice Cream Co, is extremely passionate and enthusiastic about the scratch-made Philadelphia-style ice cream he creates. Before I decided on my final flavor, and let me tell you this decision was hard, he walked me through a personal ice cream sampling.
Explaining all the unique flavors and tasting notes. I went in for ice cream, and came out having a full-on culinary adventure! The customer service was outstanding to say the least!
Several of the flavors are genuinely some of the most rich, silky, luscious ice cream I’ve ever experienced. Everything is made from scratch, and you can really taste the difference in the mouthfeel. Complex sophisticated ice cream.
