Sandpoint’s popular Panhandle Cone and Coffee plans to open a Moscow location in early March.
“Downtown Moscow feels like a good match for us – a little bit Mayberry, a little bit hipster,” said owner Jason Dillon. “People seem to appreciate quality without being pretentious.”
That’s the vibe the premium ice cream and coffee shop is known for – along with its high-quality, hand-crafted ice cream and ever-changing flavors.
Creative combinations have included sweet basil and pine nut praline, roasted strawberry and rhubarb crisp, toasted coconut and marionberry swirl, buttermilk huckleberry, salted caramel and brown butter cookie, and orange dark chocolate freckles. Espresso drinks – the shop uses coffee from Evans Brothers, also in Sandpoint – are available, too, as is a mix of the two, such as a cold-brew float or affogato.
The new Moscow store will be at 511 S. Main St.
“At this time, we’re not sure about more stores,” Dillon said, adding that Coeur d’Alene is a possibility “in the future.”
Meantime, visit the Sandpoint store at 216 N. First St. Call (208) 265-8996. On the web: coneandcoffee.com.
