Frankie & Jo's
Frankie & Jo’s makes the best ice cream in Seattle. This 100% plant-based and gluten-free shop is proof that great frozen desserts don’t need dairy or wheat to be the greatest. Every flavor here delivers, from the fermented “crème fraîche” with a rich berry swirl and cubes of delicate lemon cake that we haven't been able to stop thinking about since 2018 to oat milk vanilla with sticky brown sugar blondies and coconut caramel. There are even some options that contain ingredients you’d find on a camping trip, like pine needles and charcoal. Get it all scooped on a homemade maple oat waffle cone, and don’t be surprised if you go on to choose this place over others that use actual milk and cream.
