Some of the best ice cream ever! Don't miss this on a hot summer day. Really interesting flavors, great crispy cones and delicious sundaes.

I know everyone gets in a tizzy about Molly Moon ice cream but I am here to offer an alternative point of view - that it is just ok. The flavors are very strong (if you like that) and more sweet than savory. I have tried it twice and frankly, I am not so impressed. I wish Tillamook would open... More

The second day I passed by this line up I decided that I had to find out what the fuss was about...it involved eating ice cream but I was game! Now I understand. The staff is attentive and patient and when it's your turn at the counter they act as if your choice is the most important event of their... More

This was so good it actually became our dinner. I had the vegan ice cream and it was one of the most flavorful non-dairy frozen treats I've had. There are options for toppings and various cones/dishes. Worth the stop and hassle to get through the line; the end reward is perfect ice cream!

Fab ice cream. Nice selection of flavours. Lovely friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit :) Not a lot of indoor seating. We were lucky though. Most people take their goodies and go, but if you can get a seat under the "ice cream makes you happy" sign, all the better! Enjoy :)

This is the new go-to ice cream place in north seattle. I like the honey lavender scoops and I have even tried it as a milkshake-decadent! Go when the lines aren't too long. This location seems less busy than the U Village shop.

We waited 1/2 an hour for decent ice cream, but it really wasn't anything special. Not high cream and limited choice of flavors. Liked the fresh cones, but it's definitely not worth the long line.

Oh boy!! One look at the snaking queue trying to get into the iconic ice cream outlet, we knew we just had to get some too! Surprisingly people knew their minds and ordered rather quickly. And lo! It was that moment when you feel like you are in candy store and don't know what to pick. The lavender flavour worked!!!... More

beware 1 scoop @ Molly Moon is like 2 where we come from. Tasty top quality ice cream, generous portions - what's not to like?
