Denver’s High Point Creamery officially opens its third shop Friday in the Berkeley neighborhood. The 4-year-old business got its start in Park Hill, expanded to Denver Central Market and an ice cream truck, and is now also operating out of 3977 Tennyson Street.
Customers will find the brand’s familiar flavors such as Tin Cup whiskey with pistachio brittle, cookies (three ways) and cream, and salted caramel. New spring flavors now also are in the mix — see sunflower with lemon, bananas and honey, and violet with lime cookies. Cake-like (but cake-free) French ice cream bombes are available for special order, and sodas, malts, and milkshakes are for sale. The shop is marked by a black and white awning out front above a wooden bench. Inside, it’s a modern soda fountain with penny tile, exposed brick, and blonde wood booths.
Husband-and-wife owners Erika Thomas and Chad Stutz started High Point Creamery in 2014. Thomas had been making ice cream for fun and deciding what to do for a living. She suggested accounting, and Stutz countered: Why not start an ice cream shop? “It’s a really happy business,” she said he told her at the time. “It’s hard to have a bad day in an ice cream shop,” Thomas added. “The worst thing that can happen is someone drops a scoop.”
Another High Point is set to open this summer at Denver Central Market in the airport.
Status: High Point Creamery opens at 3977 Tennyson Street starting at 4 p.m. Friday with buy-one-get-one ice cream specials until 6 p.m. Regular business hours will be from 1 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, noon to 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 9 p.m. Sundays.
