As the Port Townsend weather heats up, it is nice to know there is a fun spot to cool off. Elevated Ice Cream Co. has something for everyone. Fresh and local ingredients go into their “scratch made” product. With at least 30 different flavors of ice cream, sherbet, and Italian Ices you can’t go wrong. They have seasonal flavors along with the tried and true favorites (mine is the Swiss Orange Chocolate Chip). If ice cream is not your thing, it’s alright I’m not here to judge, they have espresso, baked goods and an adjoining candy shop. Their chocolates and truffles are handmade and make a perfect treat for you or to take back home as a special gift. The candy shop also provides a selection of candies from around the world and something for that difficult to shop for person. Do not leave without trying the salted caramel chocolate.
Kick back with a cold one at Sirens. Opening at noon everyday, they have a fairly extensive bar and many brews on tap. With the best mixed drinks in town (try a Mai Tai or Mojito) and a deck overlooking the water it can’t be beat. While the décor may not be to everyone’s taste the food is definitely delicious, my favorites are the Texas Jalapeno Poppers and Sicilian Pizza, so good! A couple tips from a local, get there early if you are planning on eating or finding a seat. It can get crowded in the evening as they usually have live music. For faster service, order at the bar!
