I love Legit Gelato Colorado
's name. It’s cool, but also accurate. Owner/confectioner Bob Wolfson, a former physician who also organized Artspace locally, makes seriously legit northern Italian-style gelato. He makes one little liter at a time with organic ingredients. His creative flavors ring true to source ingredients, like a seriously lavish whiskey fig, made with Axe and the Oak bourbon, which plays notably but balanced in the finish. Offerings like lemon, chocolate, and seasonal pumpkin spice we sample offer simple, easy fulfillment. Vegans can get sorbetto like a rich, (70-percent) dark chocolate mint, but we fall hardest for the (Illy decaf) coffee stracciatella, which consists of coffee-infused dark chocolate melted and poured into the churn, where blades snap it into chunks that break up the smooth gelato texture; the dark espresso notes fold seamlessly into deep chocolate essence. Go for one ($4.85), two ($7.25) or three ($9.65) scoops at the Pikes Peak Market, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays.
