Fat Ptarmigan Ice Cream Shop

Fat Ptarmigan Ice Cream

I just discovered that Fat Ptarmigan added an ice cream counter to their already fantastic combo of wood-fired pizza and espresso (not to mention the best caprese and canolis in town!).

This is particularly handy on evenings when you decide to take a late night trip to Ship Creek to watch the salmon run, but have determined that ice cream is a necessary part of the adventure; fortunately, the shop is open until 10:00 PM. Yay!

Double yay – they offer tastes to help you find the perfect scoop; I tasted the sea salt caramel and it was soooooo good. Perhaps a new favorite, although hopefully next time they won’t be out of the lemon sorbet or the Alaska-made options (those must sell out early!).

Read Anchorage Downtown Partnership’s review here: Fat Ptarmigan – New Ice Cream Shop!

When you go looking for the Fat Ptarmigan’s ice cream counter (because I know you will – what is a sunny summer without at least one ice cream cone?), you’ll find it tucked away a few steps past the main restaurant entrance.

I’m sure the new shop will be a big hit with visitors, but I hope the locals frequent it as well; it’s a great little addition to E Street and downtown in general!

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!

  1. Sounds great but would be really a BAD thing for me, especially if it was within walking distance of my house!! I have no will power whatsoever when it comes to trying to walk past a little shop with great ice cream.
