Red Trolley - Closed

2639 W. 32nd Ave. Denver, CO 80211 | Northwest Denver | 303-433-7200

Location Description:

When it opened in the hot summer of 2008, Red Trolley was an ice cream and gelato shop, and only an ice cream and gelato shop. Still, it was located in a lovely, historic space and dedicated to the worthy notion of bringing healthy, all-natural ice cream and gelato to the Highland neighborhood. Owners Patrick and Julie Shaw made their own everything, robbing local peach trees and grapevines for base ingredients, vowing (quite publicly) to never use artificial flavors, high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats or sprinkles. And they've stayed true to those vows even as they've expanded their offerings in order to survive the long, cold months of winter. Today, Red Trolley is also a hot dog stand, breakfast joint and well-appointed coffee shop, but the ice cream is still what makes it stand out from the crowd.
