Emma & Otto’s Ice Cream

Some of the greatest ice cream in Seattle is actually a short ferry ride away on Bainbridge Island. You’ve probably zipped past this small cottage on Winslow in favor of a certain popular spot with longer lines, but skip that line and trust us—Emma & Otto’s is way better. The beauty of their ice cream rides on its pure simplicity, from a coffee flavor that tastes like mellow cold brew swirled with fresh sweet cream to lilac-colored blackberry scoops we find hard to stop eating. (Well, licking.) A tall stack of this stuff smashed inside a homemade cinnamon waffle cone is the best treat on the island.
