Best Ice-Cream Parlor


Yes, there are fine ice-cream parlors in Seattle proper, offering premium ingredients and exotic flavors. So why go all the way to Bainbridge Island? For one thing, it's a perfect excuse to take a ferry ride on a lovely day. If you're trying to get someone out of the house, try this: "Let's go to Mora!" The ice cream—of which you can get endless samples before ordering—has all the favorite artisan flavors of the day, including lavender and rose petals (assuming the ingredients are in season). But it also has an unusual international bent, with flavors like Mexican chocolate, dulce de leche, and gianduja (a sweet chocolate mixed with hazelnuts), along with sorbets that use refreshing ingredients like cantaloupe and lime. If you can't find something here you like, you probably don't like ice cream. NINA SHAPIRO 139 Madrone Lane, Bainbridge Island, 855-1112,
