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.

Aldrich’s Market

Aldrich’s Market first opened in 1895 and after a couple of fires that completely destroyed the store it has gotten its most recent facelift in 2005. The store holds an interesting mix of everyday staples and necessities alongside local cheeses (Mt. Townsend Creamery) and fresh baked goods (Pastry Design by Anca). This is an excellent place to swing by whether you need a loaf of bread or want to pick up lunch from their deli. They stock over 700 wines from around the world and on weekdays will make you the best sushi roll, right in front of you. I always seem to find something unique and yummy when I stop by.

Sirens Pub

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!
