Kurt Farm Shop

We ate the best chocolate ice cream in Seattle ! If you already know of this place, you should have told me!!!!

This ice cream is delicious, it is like a frozen chocolate mousse. It is to die for! The base is made on Vashon Island in a farm with their cows’ cream and milk.  And the chocolate comes from… Theo of course! I love Theo Chocolate! (Read more here about Theo).

Ok it is not cheap: $4.5 a single and $10.5. But seriously, it worth it.

They opened their little shop in May in Chophouse Row Building on Capitol Hill. They sell ice creams as well as cheeses. Next time I’ll try the cheese.

Parfait in a Jar at Trove

Trove is part BBQ restaurant, part Noodle Bar, part Parfait stand and part Bar.
However, I’d like to focus on the parfaits. At the window of what looks like a food truck, order one of the 6 parfaits offered.

I don’t like to drink in a mason jar (read more here) but I am completely fine having a Parfait in a jar (same for Chef Philippe’s fabulous Chocolate mousse).

$6 and you get $1 off if you give them the jar back after you are done.
Parfait  Stand open 12-2pm and 5-11pm

We would not recommend the BBQ as we were disappointed (coming from Revel and Joule owners) but we have not tried the noodle bar yet.

Parfait Ice Cream, farm to cone!

Parfait Ice Cream makes ice cream from scratch with only basic ingredients: organic milk, eggs, cream, and sugar. They are in the process of an organic certification from WSDA, which would allow them to go to wholesale. It means that you will soon find them in stores near you.

In the mean time, you can go every day from noon to 10pm to their brick and mortar store or find their truck in the Farmers Markets.

The blood orange sorbet is fantastic! And my daughter, a foodie-to-be, had the Brownie Ice Cream sandwich. She loved it!
