Of all the times I've stopped by the shops right here in my Mountain Shadows neighborhood at Centennial and Vindicator, it wasn't until recently that the Josh & John's I assumed all this time was a coffee shop or tavern is actually an ice cream shop. It was nearly 9:30pm Saturday night when I got there and they were still getting lots of traffic in the store. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they're open as late as 11:00pm (midnight at the downtown store) on some nights. That's unusual for Colorado Springs! My server suggested the Oatmeal Cookie ice cream and I had it topped off with some Ghirardelli hot fudge. Delicious! Josh & John's has two locations, one downtown and the other in Mountain Shadows. Stop by to say hello and enjoy some awesome local homemade ice cream!
