A Must Try Hidden Gem Colorado Ice Cream Shop

Summer means a lot of things. No school, vacations, longer days, swimming pools, and maybe the best part, extra ice cream shop visits. When I was younger we'd always take trips to the local Dolly Maddison Ice Cream Shop and I'd get a rootbeer shake or an ice cream cone the size of my head. Sadly, all of the Dolly Maddison's, including the one just down from the radio station on Main Street in Windsor, closed their doors. There are still some amazing locally owned and operated ice cream shops around Colorado including one famous hidden gem down in Denver.

Bonnie Brae Ice Cream In Denver, Colorado

What Kind Of Ice Cream Does Bonnie Brae Ice Cream Have?

A giant fresh chocolate-dipped waffle cone with freshly made ice cream and sprinkles? Sign me up.

I'm not allowed another ice cream cheat until July 4th weekend but this pic makes it hard to wait.

Who doesn't love fun toppings on their cones? I love 'em.

If ice cream cones aren't your thing, they have an entire roster of delicious cakes, pies, fresh-made ice cream to go, and more.

A classic indeed... Looks so good.

Strawberries make this healthy, right?

As it says on the sign, Bonnie Brae Ice Cream is made in-house by an ice cream "Chef" and according to reviews on yelp and their social pages it's the absolute best ice cream money can buy. I can't wait to buy some myself sometime this summer and be the judge of that.
