You can’t say you’re a Seattleite unless you’ve had a large quantity of local ice cream from Molly Moon’s. Everything in the shop is baby blue and smells like hot waffle cones, and the servers don’t get mad when you sample every flavor and then order the first one you tried. Even the clothes for sale are cute. The best flavor we’ve ever seen rotate through has been salted toffee, but the nutmeg-scented cookie dough ice cream is always around and always really good. It’s not the best ice cream in Seattle, but it's a classic and you will be very happy with a double-scoop here.
