    Besides the great sorbetti, the spots have friendly staff, good music and a relaxed atmosphere. Spirited smoothies, such as the peach Bellini and sangría give a little kick to the norm. $3.50/1 scoop, $4.50/2 scoops.

    The spacious, barn-like “scoop shoppe” in Maltby serves up boozy milkshakes, such as the lemon lavender thyme shake with vodka, as well as regular milkshakes, sundaes and soft-serve parfaits.

    Local summer fruits find a place in the ice cream case, including Tiny’s organic nectarines and Alm Hill Gardens’ blueberries. The modern-meets-traditional white space provides a few chairs for sitting a spell.

    The cinnamony waffle cones are perfect for scoops of either staple, and the salted caramel shakes or sundaes with tons of toppings lend variety to the classic offerings.

    Try the honey lavender with Sequim-sourced florals and honey from the foothills of the Olympics. The shop recently launched a Hello Robin habañero orange chocolate chip cookie dough flavor (hot diggety!), and vegans will enjoy one of the many sorbets.
