Food trends come and go, but cupcakes are forever. For $10, you’ll get nine cupcakes from Cake Crumbs Bakery, a Park Hill bakery specializing in Denver’s freshest cakes and sweets, not raspberry cookie crumbs.

To say The Cork House Broker Restaurant is a wine restaurant that just happens to serve food wouldn't be totally inaccurate. The extensive wine list encompasses a wide range, welcoming bottles of sparkling and still, red and white, inexpensive and indulgent. Those who join the restaurant's wine club receive exclusive invitations to events such as wine dinners, tastings, cooking classes, and meet-and-greets with winemakers.
With that said, the restaurant’s chefs certainly know their way around the kitchen. Guests can pair their wines with a flight of carefully curated cheeses, made from goat's and cow's milks, or consult a dinner menu filled with timeless entrees including steak diane, french onion soup, and fabulous mussels. Meals unfold in the restaurant’s intimate dining room or under the patio’s generously shady cover of trees.

It's the grownup version of an ice-cream cake, basically. A molded ice-cream dessert that originated in Victorian-era France, the ice-cream bombe consists of three layers of hardened ice cream that are set using an authentic copper mold from the '60s. Once it's frozen, it flies from the mold like a beautiful ice-cream butterfly and is sliced, cake-style, then topped with nuts and sauce.
7 Leguas not only celebrates its Mexican heritage with its cuisine, but also with its name. The restaurant was named after Pancho Villa’s horse, which the famed general rode in several battles during the Mexican Revolution. Guests will find a photograph of Pancho Villa riding 7 Leguas on the front of the menu, and a candid shot of them high-fiving in midair on the back. Some of the menu’s most alluring items are the tacos, which chefs stuff with carnitas, beef tongue, or chorizo before adding a handful of cilantro and chopped onions. But there are plenty of other palate-pleasing options, including sizzling fajitas, enchilada plates, and chicken mole.
Cold Stone's ice cream inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its super-premium quality as it glides over taste buds. The ice cream generously welcomes dozens of toppings, as traditional as crumbled cookies and chopped nuts or as quirky as granola and black licorice. Choose your favorite ice cream from among dozens of silky flavors, such as Irish cream and butter pecan. Then make certain no one will try and steal a taste by topping it protectively with brownies, gumballs, and cherry pie filling. Whatever Frankencream you create, it'll be scooped cold off the grill into a freshly made waffle cone or bowl. Cold Stone's ice cream and toppings vary between seasons and location, and they also offer sorbet and an array of lighter toppings such as fruit and honey. Ice-cream creations run between $4 and $6, depending on size.
After years spent working in other restaurants and bakeries, Jyll Tuggle had a dream to open her own neighborhood eatery where folks could gather to enjoy quality cuisine and hearty conversation. That dream became Under The Umbrella Cafe and Bakery, a cozy brick-walled eatery that quickly won the Denver Post’s endorsement for its light, homemade fare and friendly, local vibe. Families can frequently be found filling seats in the kid-friendly confines, drawn in by a menu peppered with house-baked cinnamon rolls, filled croissants, breakfast burritos, and grilled sandwiches served with a choice of side such as homemade potato salad. Denver-based Pablo's Coffee fills cups with heady brews as laptops luxuriate in the waves of free WiFi and area psychics flock to read their futures in the loose leaves used to steep steaming cups of Sterling tea.
