This place is amazing. Salt & Straw tops any ice cream I've eaten anywhere. The flavors are unique and the staff is friendly in letting you sample them. I LOVE that they use reusable silverware for their samples instead of plastic ones that get thrown...More

I Can highly recommend an ice-cream pitstop at Salt & Straw. There's a reason for the long line outside - And it's absolutely worth the wait! And while you wait, the nice staff brings you small tastesamples, so you're set to order when it's your...More

We were there at 11:30pm and the line was about 15 minutes long, I could not believe this. But it was so worth the wait. I had amazing lavender ice cream. Cannot wait to be back in Portland to visit this place again.

My wife had one scoop of the coava coffee and cocanu craque and scoop of the almond brittle with salted ganache in a waffle cone and enjoyed it very much. She said the almond brittle pieces were a little too large. I had the vanilla...More

I'm both not an ice cream person and not a fan of overly crowded places, so this was a bit nerve-wracking for me to even visit here. I've walked past it at least a dozen times, constantly scoffing at how much of a tourist trap...More

While I like a couple of classic flavours, arbequina olive oil and strawberry honey balsamic with black pepper, you can't go wrong with the rotating seasonal flavours. There may be queues depending on what time of day you go but that leaves more time for...More

I do like the place very much, but it's more of a brag-it-up spot than an ice cream parlor. Great and interesting flavors you can say you tried. Hence the long lines. Personally, though, I prefer Tonalis - about five blocks away, with five times...More

This is a delicious eatery for ice cream treats. Parking may be found in front of store, curbside, on Alberta St., but do not count on it. You can easily find parking on the nearby neighborhood side streets. Alberta Street is an attraction unto itself,...More

This was among the best ice cream I have ever had. There are some unconventional flavors. You can taste samples using their silver spoons (no guilt about small plastic spoons populating a landfill). I opted for a more traditional flavor, Almond Brittle with Salted Gamache...More

Take a look at the photo for some of the flavors this month. Nothing "normal." The line outside the shop went 25 yards down the street. This location is quaint and pleasant, with nice people working in the store.

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