Bluebird Ice Cream

How I heard of this place: Being car-free in the neighborhood makes for some long walks in the summer sun, and stopping – as often as possible – to smell the roses. In this case, we stopped to smell (and sample) the ice cream! Sure glad we had our Chinook Book with us so we could get a real deal!

Type of cuisine: Ice Cream Bar and Soda Fountain. Small-batch artisan ice cream. Nano-brewed craft sodas and beers. All made in-house.”

Ambiance: Full of neighborhood charm, this street-facing, garage-door opening patio and small interior with rustic decor truly brings a family feel and Seattle comfort.

We walked in and fell immediately in love with the seating options, which can only be described by a picture:

and randomly placed paraphernalia,

Bluebird Ice Cream T-shirts, etc.

not to mention an über-Seattle, time-isn’t-a-factor server,


and the coolest old-school cash register we have seen,

Bluebird certainly did not disappoint!

Bluebird Ice Cream Behind the Scenes

What I ordered: After sampling the three vegan options: Horchata, Coconut Mint Chip and Chaco Canyon Coconut Brownie, I selected the first and last as my ice cream cup of the day.

What I loved: The Horchata was, by far, one of the best vegan ice creams I have ever tried! Ready to make a go at home with our own ice cream machine, I’m eager to match this timeless and tasty treat, perfectly paired with Seattle’s summer sun and a walk with my family.

Why I loved it: It’s in the neighborhood, most importantly (within walking distance) and it’s a simple, neighborhood treasure with plenty of options for everyone.

Cost: Average to high ($3.50 for the first – relatively small – scoop)
