Local handmade ice cream maker Molly Moon‘s is going to be stationing a truck in Queen Anne for the whole month of January, starting this Wednesday, January 5. The truck will be parked outside Pizza Hut, at 2231 Queen Anne Ave N, from 5 to 10 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and 12 to 10 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
The Parfait Artisan Ice Cream truck has been hitting the streets of Seattle—and Queen Anne—for quite some time now. What I didn’t know is that owner and chef Adria Shimada has been mixing up all her organic flavors and sweet concoctions out of a commercial kitchen right here in Lower Queen Anne!
As of this week Parfait has also added two Queen Anne stops to its regular schedule.The truck will be outside of Caffe Fiore on Galer from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday evenings, and at the Queen Anne Farmers Market every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m.
While the idea of a mobile ice cream shop may not be exactly new, Adria says Parfait is 100 percent unique.
“I am currently the only ice cream maker in Seattle that is both made-from-scratch and all organic. I don’t purchase a pre-fab ice cream mix from Snoqualmie Gourmet. Rather, I make my own custards by hand in the Parfait kitchen using certified organic dairy, eggs, and produce that I source directly from small local farms. The base of Parfait ice cream has only four ingredients: milk, cream, sugar, and eggs. Pure and simple. There is no corn or stabilizers of any kind in my ice cream. I also make all of my own cones, and all of the confections that go into my ice cream. Parfait is REAL food, slow food, and truly farm-to-cone! It’s also pretty delicious, if I must say so myself,” she wrote.
A couple of weeks ago Molly Moon’s asked Seattle neighborhoods to tweet them suggestions for where to park their brand new ice cream truck, and Queen Anne was among the winning ‘hoods to get a first taste of the sweet new mobile ice cream experience.
Enough fans in Madrona, Ballard and Queen Anne tweeted the ice cream makers begging them to swing by, that we won first route rights! In fact, we hear the truck was parked outside of Queen Anne’s own Eat Local from 3 to 5 p.m. yesterday, Sunday, June 6.
I didn’t get a chance to stop by myself, but I hope others in the neighborhood did! Maybe if we send them some more love over Twitter and the blogosphere, they’ll come back to Queen Anne soon!
