At Parfait, we make everything (down to our sprinkes!) completely from scratch in the sunny kitchen at our shop in Ballard. Our ice cream contains NO factory-sourced ice cream "base" and ZERO industrial stabilizers.

Parfait ice cream is made with organic milk from Smith Brothers Farms, cage-free eggs from the Willamette Egg Farm, organic fair-trade cane sugar, and local, certified organic produce.
