I'm kind of freaking out (in a good way) about the food scene here in Seattle and this local joint marks the beginning of what I see as a beautiful relationship with our new city of residence...
I truly thought homemade ice cream didn't get better than Christina's in Cambridge and Bi-Rite in San Francisco (they are both truly amazing!). Well, I stand to be corrected as we've discovered the most delicious homemade ice cream ever at Molly Moons here in Seattle. Flavors like Salted Caramel, Pumpkin Spice, Scout Mint and Balsamic Strawberry are offered as temptations. But it doesn't stop there--they also offer a menu of delicious toppings--one of which is homemade lemon curd (my recipe here if you want to give it a go). And anyone who has read this blog for awhile knows how much I love lemon curd! Sheer brilliance I tell ya. Between that, the ice cream, and the homemade waffle cones, it's pretty much heaven. I am not exaggerating when I say it takes considerable willpower to not visit every day. It's also a family-friendly joint thanks to the chalkboard, pint-size stools, and a little window where guys and dolls can watch homemade goodness being churned out for our ample consumption.
If you're in the area, be sure to allow time to lunch at Oddfellows around the corner (Capitol Hill location). The food is delicious, casual and honestly, any place with vast amounts of Tolix chairs is the mark of a restaurant worth patronizing in my book! Also notable is the adorable Flora and Henri next door to Molly Moon--a lovely place to swoon over gorgeous children's clothing that's unfortunately way out of my budget. But it's pretty to look :)
