I have been waiting years to visit this ice cream dispensary. it was definitely worth the wait and the calories! We visited the location on 45th Street in the Wallingford neighbor hood. A bit of a hole in the wall which fills up fast with eager customers. Unlike many other ice cream shops, the flavor select is short and sweet... More

Wonderful flavors! Even though it was 50s and rainy, it was still time for ice cream. They let you try everything and they had some wonderful treats. I had earl grey ice cream with hot fudge and whipped cream.

Molly's always has great ice cream, today's visit did not disappoint. I had the Yeti (vanilla ice cream with chocolate chunks, house made granola, and a salted caramel swirl) I also had some salted caramel ice cream. Both were great, especially the seasonal Yeti. Drop by, you'll love it.

This is one of several Seattle based Molly Moon's that's famous for their delicious and uniquely flavored ice cream. Not only that, the owner is well-regarded for her treatment of her staff - a win-win for your taste buds and support of a great business model.

They have awesome flavors! Lavender and earl grey are my favorites. Awesome waffle cones! Everywhere else I don't get a cone but theirs are free and fantastic.

Molly's Favourite ($8) is my favourite too! Salted Caramel and Chocolate ice creams covered with hot fudge, candied hazelnuts, and AMAZING chukar cherries... and whip cream, but I skip the whip cream because I'm trying to cut back...HA HA HA! This is ice cream with a high percentage of butter fat. The ice cream sits on your tongue so you... More

The first thing I noticed was it smelled like a bakery, which I thought odd. Then I saw that they were constantly waffling waffle cones, and they were incredible. The ice cream itself (chocolate) was very smooth and creamy - my friend didn't dig the extreme creaminess but I loved it. Reminds me a bit of Coldstone Creamery ice cream.... More

Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream... I could eat it almost every day. This is a place that is worth standing in the line around the corner just to try some of their regulars and some of the new seasonal favorites. And some of the regulars are by far the better flavors! They will let you try a few samples so see... More
