Sweet & Savory Summer: Go on a cone crawl

Alexandria Wallace and her 8-year-old son at Frankie & Jo’s pop-up on Alki Beach.


For a city with such a rainy reputation, Seattle sure has a lot of ice cream options.

Start with Frankie and Jo’s (2758 Alki Ave. SW), a plant-based ice cream pop-up on Alki Beach through Labor Day. Made with a coconut and/or cashew milk base in flavors like brown sugar vanilla, mint brownie, and beet strawberry rose sorbet, kids can slurp scoops off a maple-vanilla waffle cone or grab a pint for a picnic on the beach.

Here are a few more to try: Sweet Alchemy, Molly Moon’s, Salt & Straw, Kurt Farm Shop, The Cookie Counter, Full Tilt, Central District Ice Cream Company, Seattle Freeze (ice cream and donuts), and Old School Frozen Custard, just to start.

Wash those sticky hands and then have everyone brainstorm and draw your own original flavors and sundaes. Rainbow Unicorn Chocolate Birthday Cake, anyone?
