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

They always have a long line, but its worth the wait. I guests its the smell of their freshly made waffle cone thats luring the passing crowd. I had coffee coffee ice cream, my daughter had honey lavender which she love.. Not too sweet, mild yet so tasty..

Premium pricing, so expected top notch ice cream. Mint flavor was OK, but "McConnell's Ice Cream" in Whole Food's freezer case is much better. Maple Walnut flavor did not taste like it had much maple, nor walnuts. Coffee ice cream flavor was quite good (a welcomed relief). One thing they do well: Waffle cone was fresh and cooked perfectly.

Several nights in a row, we ended the evening here in line with all the other smart ice cream lovers! They make the waffle cones fresh, and the flavors of ice cream are very fun and imaginative! Hint: ask to have the magic shell poured into the cone BEFORE the ice cream is scooped on top! AMAZINGLY fun!! Yes, there... More

This is the best ice cream in this part of the city. The cutest parklet out front with swings. Hand made waffle cones. Delicious ice cream.
