Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches at The Cookie Counter

The Cookie Counter makes the best in town

Chelsea Keene and Chris Olson of The Cookie Counter make the best vegan ice cream in town.

If you haven’t experienced their creamy, organic, coconut-milk-based ice cream sandwiches sold from their roving (June–September) blue 1974 Volkswagen bus named Mavis, take heart: You can now customize your own sammie ($5) at the couple’s new 850-square-foot café, which opened in April across the street from Bluebird Ice Cream on Phinney Ridge.

Promise me you’ll try the Creamsicle-like lemon ice cream with snickerdoodles. The cookies—wonderfully chewy—are vegan, too. Also look for cinnamon rolls, pies and gluten-free shortbreads, plus happy-hour milk (vegan, of course) and cookies. That’s my sweet spot.
