Fainting Goat gelato is now available at the top of Queen Anne, located on the north patio of Zaw Pizza, at the intersection of Queen Anne Ave and Blaine. According to owner Yalchin Ataman, the Queen Anne location opened a few weeks ago and will be offering gelato and sorbetto from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day through the end of the summer.
Fainting Goat is a family-owned business that uses all organic ingredients, including milk from Fresh Breeze Farms in Lyden, WA, and select ingredients, such as pistachios, imported all the way from Italy. They offer up a dozen different flavors daily (see the list), many based on what’s in season, as well as customer favorites, and perhaps a few flavors that might be new to you. If you can’t decide on just one, they’ll happily scoop up a two-flavor combo.
The original Fainting Goat is located in Wallingford, and the owners selected the summer Queen Anne location due to the neighborhood vibe and family-friendly atmosphere. While Fainting Goat will be at its current location through the end of the summer, if we’re lucky enough, they’ll find a permanent Queen Anne home soon thereafter.
