My advice is to stay away from this place....because once you try it, you will not be able to stop from returning over and over again. Salt & Straw has redefined how ice cream will be seen by me and countless others. The flavors are...More

Patient staff who allowed for the testing of the different flavours. In the end i settled for the black olive brittle and goat cheese flavour - delicious! :)

First, what a great efficient bunch of people working in this place. They moved the line like I have never seen a line moved - even though the line never shortened on a Saturday night. Second, I just don't really care about ice cream -...More

It was a happening place, had some great flavors. Could use some more seating but other than that we enjoyed the ice cream very much.

Recommended to us by an Australian living in LA that we met in a shared Uber (you never know who you'll meet). We actually had the icecream at the Disneyland outlet, but it was really yummy.

Simply one of the best ice cream places I tried in my life. The flavors ingenuity is impressive I have to say, and the ice cream is just delicious. I recommend the salted caramel flavor highly. Great place, friendly staff. Excellent overall.

I came to try this ice cream, merely because of the crowd by it. It had many interesting flavours but was a bit confusing as a visitor.

Brilliant ice cream, with some very weird flavours. They let you try before you buy which helps with flavours like Turkey and Stuffing on the menu! I recommend the Sea Salt and Caramel flavour.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

Small-batch, chef-driven ice cream made by hand with local ingredients since 2011. We hope you love it!
