“Go for the ice cream...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

One of the best places to go in Seattle for Ice Cream. Authentic "dairy" style ice cream. They are a deli as well, and it's kind of a Mecca for the locals (who are all about supporting local businesses)...but the ice cream is the real draw. They sell in quarts and pints, so think about bringing a cooler and stocking up the freezer. Conveniently located on California Ave near the Junction.

“Husky, Don't Change a Thing - Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

In a rapidly gentrifying West Seattle, Husky is an oasis of the old world; both old world Europe and old world West Seattle. And it's still run by an old West Seattle family. As a fourth generation West-Seattlelite, I appreciate what's left of the West Seattle I once knew. Go, have some Husky flake ice cream, get some wacky packaged gourmet foods, order some cheese and watch the world go by. Forget your fancy Molly Moon's. This is the original, best ice cream in Seattle.

“Great Ice Cream + Sandwiches + more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

This is a great place to get unique and wonder ice cream cones along with all of your favorite imported candy (especially from the UK) and a great sandwich shop. I highly recommend the Coconut Ice Cream, my family also loves the Nutella Ice Cream and Cookie Dough. The seating inside and out can handle about 30 people but you can always grab a cone and go for a walk in this most charming of neighborhoods.

“Ice Cream Stop!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon for ice cream with my family. What wonderful ice cream. Enjoyed the Swiss Chocolate Orange. My son had Strawberry his favorite and my husband had a split scoop of Butter pecan and Salted Caramel. It was like custard, smooth and balanced flavors. I wish we had stopped by for lunch as well, the sandwich menu looks great. We will try it out on our next visit to West Seattle. But, this place is the must stop for a great scoop of ice cream.

“Go get an ice cream cone!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Small store located on the California strip. Lots of interesting food options here but most people come for the ice cream and you should too!
