This Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor In Washington Will Make You Feel Like A Kid Again

Washington has plenty of adult-oriented restaurants with menus fit for foodies, especially our bigger cities like Seattle. But sometimes it’s nice to forego the fine dining and enjoy a classic meal just like you did when you were younger—meaning it ends with dessert. A few months ago, Shelby’s Bistro and Ice Creamery opened in West Seattle… and between the sundae menu and the vibrant 1950s decor, a visit there feels like a step back in time.

Shelby’s definitely has the charm of a 1950s soda shop, but it’s also shiny and new. If you’d prefer to dine in one of our state’s oldest restaurants, here’s a great list to choose from.
