Kickin' It Old School

Stop, collaborate, and listen: Ice is back with a cold, smooth tradition.

These licks’ll grab hold of you tightly. Have you running up to Capitol Hill daily and nightly.

Old School Frozen Custard is claiming a corner on the expanding sweet consumption taking hold of Pike and Pine.

Ice cream’s softer, silkier cousin, custard is made with eggs and served at a slightly warmer temperature.

The store’s white wainscoting and exposed beams — along with chairs, tables, and blackboards reclaimed from local classrooms — create an appropriately vintage setting in which to indulge in classic flavors like chocolate or, on alternating days, mint, lemon, and strawberry.

The vanilla’s nice, nice baby.

Old School Frozen Custard, 1316 East Pike Street (206-324-2586 or oldschoolfrozencustard.com).
Stop in for a free cone Saturday, 3-10 p.m.
