Ice Cream


"Lift Your Spirits"

The Elevated Ice Company, a refreshingly modern old-fashioned Ice Cream Parlor and Candy Shop located in the historic seaport of Port Townsend, WA. At our Water Street location in the downtown historic district locals and visitors gather for all of life's celebrations and comforts, and have been for over 40 years. We make our own ice cream, sherbet, and Italian ices (non-dairy) on the premises, and our product selection also includes home baked desserts, espresso beverages, chocolates and specialty candies.

At Elevated Ice Cream Co. we make all of our own ice cream right here on the premises multiple times each week, assuring you of the freshest ice cream possible. We offer a minimum of 30 flavors at a time, and our selection changes seasonally. We also offer 2 flavors of sherbet and 8 Italian Ices (non-dairy) along with 20-22 flavors of ice cream. Although we are always creating new flavors, there are some flavors which our customers insist must always be available!

Espresso & Smiles


A Port Townsend Favorite

The Elevated Ice Cream Co. began serving ice cream from a courtyard antique Victorian elevator cage in 1977, hence the name Elevated Ice Cream Co., and the motto “Lift Your Spirits!”

Although we advanced after one summer from  street vendor to ice cream parlor, we retained the name “Elevated” for our ice cream’s superior quality. 

Julie and David were taught to make ice cream by a very dear friend of Julie’s grandparents, Norm Glover, who had an ice cream parlor in Seattle for close to 40 years. Norm taught us how to make his most popular flavors, and showed us his special techniques and methods that we still use today.
