Voted 5280 magazine Readers' Choice for Top Gelato, The Red Trolley was founded by Julie and Patrick Shaw, who wanted to take their kids out for ice cream that didn't give off an unnatural glow. Ice creams and sorbettos at The Red Trolley are made in-house without the deal-breaking lineup of high fructose corn syrup, trans fat, and artificial colors and flavors. Denver Magazine named the banana chocolate peanut butter gelato one of the 100 must eats in Denver ($3.50 for a single scoop), and the charming counter stools are well-suited for sealing truces with root beer floats ($4.99). Mix and match flavors such as the cupcake junky without neglecting a favorite such as the sea-salt chocolate-covered caramel gelato.
