( – Bainbridge Island
How I heard of this place: Everyone speaks of delicious ice cream in Bainbridge and this one caught our attention as we strolled along the small downtown area.
Type of cuisine: Delectable desserts and sweet treats. Everything from home-made ice creams and sorbets, to molten cake, apple pie, brownies, a triple chocolate parfait, affogato, root beer floats, banana split, frozen yogurt, milk shakes, smoothies and sorbet shakes. Something for everyone who has a sweet tooth or a taste for dessert!
Ambiance: Brightly colored and modern interior with a flair for classic ice cream specialties. Small table and chair settings are placed around the interior and exterior, as well as benches outside upon which to enjoy your frozen creations. Upon entering, patrons are invited to stand in line, place an order for the type of dessert you will enjoy and then move along the counter to sample the ice cream concoctions before choosing your flavor(s).
What I ordered: Of the eight of us on this dessert journey, seven of us ordered. (The eighth was smart, knowing that all of us could not possibly finish every bite and there would surely be enough leftovers to sample!) That being said, I ordered a sugar cone with two half-scoops ($3.65) including dark chocolate mint and espresso mocha. Among other orders in our group, we had a gluten-free cone with half-scoops ($3.65) of coconut and cinnamon, a waffle bowl ($5.65) with half-scoops of dark chocolate and chocolate peanut butter Moreo and one full scoop of strawberry. The four others couldn’t refuse the molten cake ($6-$7), each artfully presented with two large scoops of ice cream. Among these ice cream flavors were: Mexican chocolate and dulce de leche with shaved chocolate, dulce de leche and coconut, dulce de leche and raspberry cheesecake, and coconut with French vanilla.
What I loved: Nothing negative could be said about any of the flavors, cones, bowls or cakes in our group! My favorite ice cream flavors included the coconut, dark chocolate mint and strawberry. The large chunks of chocolate in the dulce de leche were the perfect balance of bittersweet chocolate and crunch to add to the creamy consistency of the dulce de leche. With the molten cake, I enjoyed most the French vanilla and coconut combination as the light flavors married well with the rich, dark and sweet molten cake.
Why I loved it: The company, the day, the seating, the friendly staff, large samples, ambiance and the fresh flavors of home-made ice cream could not be beat!
Cost: High ($4-$8 for two scoops of ice cream)
