Amazing service makes up for the long lines, not to mention the best icecream flavors you'll get in Portland. Try as many flavors as you can, it's worth it! Some sound off the wall, but are perfectly paired.

What a fun area to eat. Many choices for lunch and/or dinner and a must stop is salt and straw! We moved to Florida panhandle and haven’t found such creativity and quality here. Come for ice cream every visit home!

Let me be clear...this place is good, very good. I am not sure how long I would be willing to stand in line for it but luckily our wait was a short one. Our server was patient as we tried just about every flavor before...More

The staff is very cheerful and happy to give out samples. There’s only seating for 11 people so it gets cramped fast. The variety of flavors is good and there’s something for everybody.

So the wait was terrible. The line was completely out the door and it seemed like every person wanted 3-5 samples each. After waiting for a long time, the ice cream WAS good though. I'd get it again but not if the wait is as...More
