Little Coney is probably the only place in town where you can get old-school soft serve where the mix comes from a carton. Everyone knows that this is the best soft serve in the world. It’s creamy, artificially-flavored, and exactly what you need while flying a kite around on the shore trying to remember why it is that you own a kite. This snack shack also serves classic burgers and fries, and they’re fine - just make sure to bring salt with you, or dip your food in the Puget Sound. It all needs so much salt.
