Darren McGill and Kryse Martin-McGill, the duo behind Nate’s Wings and Waffles, Happy Grillmore, and Central District Ice Cream Company, have opened their doughnut and soft serve shop called Seattle Freeze (6014 12th Avenue S.) in Georgetown — mostly. The shop is hosting limited hours as a so-called “soft open” run, with plans to fully open in July. Prospective patrons can find announcements of irregular hours on the Seattle Freeze Instagram page.

Seattle Freeze’s doughnuts come in flavors like cereal milk, maple chicharron, matcha pistachio, and Mexican dark chocolate, with glazed and custard-filled opions. And the ice cream is soft serve, with flavors that skew traditional (vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry) and inventive, like the rotating options fans have come to enjoy at the McGills’ Central District Ice Cream Company: black sesame, ube, and matcha. Mix-ins might include Oreos, Fruity Pebbles, and other cookies, candy, and cereal.

The shop’s name is an homage to the “Seattle Freeze” phenomenon in which newcomers find it often difficult to make friends in this fair city. But chances are the McGills will have no trouble making friends in Georgetown when they fully open for business.
