Central District Ice Cream Co

January 15, 2018

January is a great time to get yourself some ice cream Рno lines, no melting in the sun, and you can take your time sampling the flavors. I did just that at Central District Ice Cream Company where picked up this piece of ice cream art:


It’s black sesame and dried plum swirled together and it was both fruity and savory. They rotate the flavors monthly and you can count on some hip flavors each time around ¬†(they had some pints leftover from January and I scored the last eggnog cheesecake). The inside is friendly, spacious, and pleasant even on a rainy day:


So come pay a visit and support yet another addition to Seattle’s phenomenal indie ice cream scene!


Midnight Cookie

January 8, 2018

This little cookie shop in Fremont is ready to take care of your late-night cookie cravings, and they’ll even bring them to your door. Midnight Cookie doesn’t open until 4 in the afternoon, and on the weekend they stay open until 3 AM just in case you’re craving sugar after you’re done bar-hopping. I visited at what for me was a late hour – around 10 PM. The options are not as interesting as Hello Robin, but the prices are a little easier to swallow.


My friend and I got Cookies and Cream, Double Chocolate Chip, S’Mores, and Peanut Butter Chip. We made the mistake of eating a few of them cold, discovering later that they are better when warmed up. I liked that you could get milk along with the cookies! I’m still partial to Hello Robin, but this is a good option for those late-night cravings.
