Communal seating and dishes of ice cream built for two. Layla Isaac’s transition from ice cream chef to retail shop owner sticks to the theme and name of her Tacoma food business – Ice Cream Social.

Sometime in June, Isaac intends to open her first ice cream cafe on Sixth Avenue. Isaac is just getting started on the space, which will have a menu of ice cream sold by the cone, bowl or pint. She described an ice cream parlor atmosphere with plenty of group seating.

Isaac is working on the shop at the same time she’s preparing for a busy farmers market season. She’ll be at opening day Thursday at the Tacoma Farmers Market selling vanilla bean, chocolate peanut butter cup, strawberry, Valhalla coffee, salted caramel and coconut chocolate chip ice creams (see more below about the farmers market opening Thursday). This year, she’s also selling at the Proctor Farmers Market – this Saturday is her first time selling there.
