Best Ice Cream Sandwich with a name you can’t pronounce – Westword
High Point Creamery, which got its start in Hilltop, finally opened a second location last year, inside the Denver Central Market in RiNo. Being neighborly, owners Erika Thomas and Chad Stutz decided to collaborate with Izzio Artisan Bakery just across the market hall. The result of the teamwork is the Ice Kouign Sandwich, named for the French pastry, a kouign–amann, that it’s built on. Say “queen” and you’re close enough, and say it close enough to the counter so that an ice cream clerk will hear you and make one for you. The pastry itself is like a salty-sweet version of a croissant in circular form; it’s cut in half and layered with your choice of ice cream. Good fences make good neighbors, but in this case, good neighbors make great desserts.
