A Walk in the Park

It was nice and clear and not rainy Monday afternoon, so me and the S.O. decided to walk through Cal Anderson and try some of the much vaunted Molly Moon ice cream.

Between the two of us, we tried the Salted Caramel, Balsamic Strawberry, Pomegranate Curry and the Scout Mint. The mint tasted just like you'd think it would, and the Pomegranate Curry was ... pomegranate with curry. Kind of weird.

The Salted Caramel was a little too salty, though we thought it would go well on pie. I thought the Balsamic Strawberry was delicious - the tangy sweet depth of the balsamic reduction kept the strawberry from getting boring and insipid. My partner in ice cream said he'd prefer just plain strawberry.

A business after my own heart - not only do they sell tasty ice cream, everything you can't eat is compostable.

I really like what they've done with the place. A clean classic interior...

With whimsical attention to detail.

After deciding on merely two flavors of ice cream that we had to bring home (Vivace Coffee and Balsamic Strawberry), we swung back through the park. And what should we happen upon but...


My partner in ice cream is less than impressed - if he had a hot dog stand, he'd call it "Walk the Dog".

On the way out of the park, I was struck by the change in scenery. The absence of buildings looks devastating from Broadway, but in Cal Anderson it just seems to open up the horizon.
