They’re always cool…and with great coffee, hot
I know what you’re thinking…it’s November and it’s finally too cold to go out for ice cream. Aside from the fact that it’s never too cold to go out for a frozen treat, you’ll be glad to hear that The Ice Cream Show has plenty more to offer.
We can start with gourmet coffee, made from beans roasted and perfected in the Seattle area and then ground in the store for—excuse me—a damn fine cup of coffee. Go for an espresso shot for maximum flavor or the trusty drip brew for maximum caffeine.
If coffee isn’t your thing, treat yourself to a hot chocolate or the special Mexican hot chocolate, made with spices and cocoa from Mexico. Plus plenty of milk options let you have your drink however you want!
For the health conscious, The Ice Cream Show offers $4 gallon jugs of alkaline water, which is put through a special filtering process to remove harmful chemicals and acids. The levels of alkalinity correspond to different levels of purification, with an end result of better digestive and overall health. You might not think you could be a water snob, but once you get committed you won’t be able to go back to plain restaurant water.
If you can eat ice cream in any weather, you’ll be excited to hear that all 17,000 of their possible flavor combinations made from 40 different, fresh ingredients will be available through the winter. Fruit, nuts, chocolate, and even cheesecake can go into the blender with ice cream, froyo, or sugar or dairy-free options.
The Ice Cream Show is located at 105 Walnut St., right by the end of the bridge and across from the Hunter Museum. They’re open 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday.
