ben & jerry's outdoor seating on evans at

I'm not sure I'd really want to site on Evans because it's a busy street. I think walking a block west to the grassier areas of the DU campus would be much nicer.

But...at least the option is there.

Metromix photo-essay compares Liks and Little Man

Metromix Denver has a photo article comparing Little Man Ice Cream with Liks.

Their verdict:

Man, this is a tough call. You're going to hate us, but the winner is...IT'S A DRAW! Both ice cream shops offered a unique ice cream experience and both shop's flavors, tastes and prices were absolutely perfect.

Weak sauce.

Liks Capitol Hill

Liks has two locations in Denver: Capitol Hill and down south.

Highlands Red Trolley Ice Cream

Ice cream, gelato, and hot dogs in the Highlands

In Denver's peripheral Highlands neighborhood for the past 2 years, the Red Trolley is a worthy stop for sweet lovers and those who like to frequent cute neighborhood establishments. The gelato was incredible, with flavors that are both creative and full of high-quality product. My favorite on a recent visit was caramel topped with a chocolate ganache and sea salt. Red Trolley also serves up delicious and natural ice creams and hot dogs for those looking for more sustenance.

That spoon is simply too small for his oversized mouth!

Gelato in Vail at Rimini Gelato

Located in Lionshead, Rimini Gelato serves up some decadent gelato (for a price you would expect in Vail). The peanut butter was extremely rich and flavorful (our favorite!), while java mint chip also provided some tasty mint flavor and dark chocolate goodness.

The inside of the cafe reminds one of historic coffee bars in Europe, and there are some nice tables outside looking out onto a bit of a town square. Despite $6.50 for a double scoop, this place is worth a visit to try some quality gelato.
