Operating out of The Stone House Cafe in Rainier Valley, Laina’s is our newest favorite ice cream spot, and not just because they have a bunch of outdoor seating where you can stare out longingly at Lake Washington. More importantly, their small-batch ice cream is just straight-up delicious - especially the dairy-free ube (made with coconut milk) that’s got a super creamy consistency. We’ve also combined scoops of their peanut butter and mixed berry, which ends up tasting like a frozen PB&J. No white bread of course.

Two other helpful things to know about Laina’s - they sell all of their flavors by the pint and they’re only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
