The weather has been a bit spotty and overcast but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy cool treats – and if you’re tired of our ice cream posts, we’ve got gelato coming at you this week! One thing people can’t deny is that Seattle’s got variety and we’re going to share some of our favorite gelato places in and around the Greater Seattle Area!
Located south of Seattle, in Burien, Washington, The Mediterranean Zone Gelato Bar & Travel Café, otherwise known as MEDZO, is a great place to indulge in high-quality, artisan gelato and sorbet. Packed with natural ingredients and organic dairy, their exotic flavors include pistachio, salted hazelnut caramel, red velvet, grapefruit, rice, and tiramisu.
The Nutty Squirrel Gelato has a few locations, two in Seattle (Phinney Ridge & Magnolia and Maple Valley). Their explicit Italian flavors include stracciatella, French butter caramel, espresso, pink guava, and their classic “nutty squirrel.” In addition to their dairy-based flavors, they typically have a few vegan flavors “on ice” too!
Located in Walllingford and Fremont, the Fainting Goat offers great gelato and sorbetto, in a variety of off-the-wall flavors, including Tutti Frutti, fresh ginger, green tea, avocado, spicy chocolate, mango habanero, and mojito. These are perfect for summer-time treats! They rotate daily so you’ll never know what they have until you stop by and check them out!
In downtown Seattle, the Bottega Italiana is another high-trafficked and much-loved spot. Serving up authentic artisan gelato, each recipe is individually unique and is only made in small quantities to preserve flavor and ensure freshness. They have only the one location in the greater Seattle area, but if you’re ever in San Diego, make sure to check out their California locations.
Only a stone’s throw away from the last suggestion, Gelatiamo is another small batch and locally sourced gelato, locally known as a “Seattle tradition”. Their products include gelato which can be found at their brick-and-mortar or any of the dozens of local establishments that carry their product, gelato cakes, and frozen novelties.
In their 13th year (as of 2018), Sirena Gelato uses the likes of Turkish-imported, organic hazelnuts, black cocoa chocolate, and slow roasted pistachio nuts to create their one-of-a-kind, small-batch flavors. With two locations, one in Kirkland, Washington and another in Bremerton, Washington, they can serve you up delightful treats on either side of the peninsula! Sirena Gelato is surely to “entice those on an adventure – for a delicious treat!”
