With a shop in Seattle and two new shops about to open in Bellevue and Redmond, Zoëyogurt is proud to be Seattle’s first local, independent self-serve frozen yogurt store that also uses 100% compostable serve ware. Choose from 12 different yogurt flavors, made with live and active cultures (including dairy-free), and no high fructose corn syrup! Plus you can from assorted fresh fruit and dry toppings. In case you’re wondering, the owners’ daughter named zoëyogurt after their dog, a miniature schnauzer named Zoë.
Old School Frozen Custard
1316 E Pike St
Seattle, WA 98122
With locations on Capitol Hill and in Bonney Lake, Old School Frozen Custard has been proudly serving up delicious frozen custard in the Puget Sound area since 2007. It is smoother, creamier, and more flavorful than any super premium ice cream (think gelato!). And it contains fewer calories, too! Old School’s products are made fresh all day, and you’ll find the traditional flavors — Vanilla Bean and Chocolate, and a special, new Flavor of the Day every day of the month. Try your frozen custard in a “concrete” – a blended combination of frozen custard and your choice of mix-ins from a huge selection of toppings and syrups.
