West Sound Home & Garden “Best of Food & Wine” issue.
MORA won “Reader’s Choice Award.”

THE CONSUMERIST    by Chris Morran on August 10, 2011
We all scream | Are These Really The 25-Best Ice Cream Shops In The Country?


Seattle Weekly magazine named Mora Iced Creamery the 2011 Best Ice Cream Parlor in Seattle.
Nina Shapiro, Seattle Weekly reviewer wrote:

The ice cream—of which you can get endless samples before ordering—has all the favorite artisan flavors of the day, including lavender and rose petals (assuming the ingredients are in season). But it also has an unusual international bent, with flavors like Mexican chocolate, dulce de leche, and gianduja (a sweet chocolate mixed with hazelnuts), along with sorbets that use refreshing ingredients like cantaloupe and lime. If you can’t find something here you like, you probably don’t like ice cream.”

HORIZON AIR    July 2007

“Not to be missed is Mora’s South American-inspired dulce de leche, whose initial taste—sweet in the mouth, though not heavy—is followed by a mouthwatering moment right after, when the taste buds on the side of the tongue spring to life. Then there’s the marron glace with the French chestnuts preserved in syrup; the mora with its hand-smashed blackberries (mora means “blackberry” in Spanish) ; and the amazing gianduja—silky-smooth hazelnut-flavored chocolate featuring Oregon hazelnuts.


NORTHWEST PALATE    July/August 2006

“Their ice cream is made from scratch using local milk, cane sugar, and ripe fruit. The pink grapefruit sorbet packs one grownup punch!”



“Jump-start the summer season with a decadent waffle cone from Bainbridge Island’s new Mora Iced Creamery outpost. The 48 flavors, all made from ultra-fresh ingredients and including irresistibles like mora (blackberry), are stored in sleek stainless-steel containers for optimum freshness, so no seeing beforehand. But trust us, it’s worth the suspense.”


Southwest Airlines SPIRIT    August, 2006

“A commitment to the freshest ingredients demands painstaking labor from Perez and Orselli, who chop, peel, and pulverize every single fruit for their ice creams and sorbets.”



“When it’s time to treat yourself, do it at Mora Iced Creamery with sorbets and old-fashioned Bainbridge Island-made ice cream in flavors you have to taste to believe.”


HORIZON AIR    June 2006

“Thanks to Mora Iced Creamery, a company started in fall 2004 by an Argentinean family that moved to Bainbridge Island, west of Seattle, Northwest residents and visitors can savor the experience of gathering over artisan ice cream.”

Nancy Leson, Restaurant Critic, Pacific Northwest Magazine, SEATTLE TIMES November 2006

“Imagine Ye Old Ice Cream Shoppe envisioned by a mad scientist and you’ve got Mora, where elegant ice cream is made with impeccable ingredients.”

SEATTLE WEEKLY    August 2006

“Best Ice Cream Innovators.”

Hsiao-Ching Chou, Food Editor, SEATTLE PI 
December 2005

“Winter weather cannot deny fabulous ice cream, and the pure flavors of Mora Iced Creamery are worth suffering shivers.”
