It's difficult to separate the great family atmosphere and energy from the sandwiches, ice cream, confections, and otherwise hard to find deli items offered here. Very comfortable place to grab lunch and feel like you've gone back in time to a simpler, more relaxed place. I started going here years ago to find odd items to give for Christmas gifts... More

Husky Deli seemed like the place to go on warm summer nights in West Seattle - lots of families and kids on break. They offered a cool assortment of unusual groceries too - craft sodas, imported chocolate, biscuits and crackers... if you are having a hard time finding that cookie you fell in love with in Europe, check their shelves....

The homemade ice cream at Husky's is very good. It is a little pricey at $4 for a single scoop cone but serving size was good at least. Good quality ice cream. The store has an old fashioned vibe to it that makes it nice to sit at the counters and eat your ice cream. Service was good. Great location... More

If you are looking for a variety of specialty items, the Husky Deli is the place to go. In addition to their deli items which are delicious, their selection of ice creams, beers and wines are amazing. On warm days it can be crowded but it's worth the wait!

This is always a fun place to go and have some delicious homemade ice cream! The flavors are varied and local to Seattlites along with all the staples (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry). I've never been there without a line, so make sure you have the patience to wait for a great dessert!

I've had one of the best ice creams if my life in there. They even make the waffle cones themselves and the ice cream choices are awesome, the Butter toasted pecan was so delicious!

This place is not in the best physical place buy every local knows it has the best ice cream in the area. Get the Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich and any of their ice cream.
