We all scream for ice cream. Especially when it’s from High Point Creamery in Denver’s Hilltop neighborhood. This place is super cute and super yummy. They hand craft all of their artisanal flavors on site, and while there are some traditional picks, there are quite a few unique standouts, like Early Grey with Shortbread, Tipsy Peach, and Bananas with Honey. Bonus: They serve ice cream flights which give you five flavors plus toppings. I swear, I love this place.
Before photographing her shop, I asked owner Erika Thomas a few questions about her business.
Q: Why did you decide to open High Point?
ET: I love ice cream. I love how creative it is, and it’s hard to have a bad day in an ice cream shop.
Q: Where do you get your ideas and inspiration for such unique flavors?
ET: From everywhere. Sometimes it’s from people, what their favorite dessert or flavor combo is and I go from there. Sometimes it’s seasonal; right now I’m working on some fall flavors that are heavily inspired by what my grandmother and mother made for thanksgiving. And sometimes it’s from a problem we’re trying to solve. It all depends.
Q: What is your personal favorite?
ET: Basil with Blackberry Swirl
