This past week of summer-like temperatures in Seattle has definitely been good for the town’s ice cream hawkers as well as gardeners, I would think. A relatively new addition to the gourmet ice cream purveyor’s club here is Molly Moon’s in Wallingford. We tried it out the other weekend (when it was freezing out, but we didn’t care and weren’t the only ones – it was packed anyway) and I was blown away by both the design of the tiny storefront and its wares.
First of all, great logo, great sign:
Another exterior sign, the letters that have been cut out of it are inside:
They’re not kidding here – once you’re indoors, the scent of the freshly-cooking waffle cones would not allow you to order anything else:
These were the only free seats we saw the whole time we were there, lovely simple hewn blocks of wood, complete with character-ful cracks:
This sign just had me grinning – I love when businesses actually take their waste-production seriously and take real steps to reduce it. 100% compostable everything, woo hoo!
Amazing chandelier made of wires, binder clips and paper. You could probably make one at home if you were really arty:
The flavor decision was downright brutal. I thought my brain was going to explode. How did they choose so many of my all-time favorite but hard to find ice cream flavors? Balsamic Strawberry, Ginger, Honey Lavender, Mandarin Chocolate Sorbet, Salted Caramel,Thai Iced Tea… those were just the front-runners. The winner? Salted Caramel by a nose. Delicious!
