It's worth it just for the generous free samples they provide. The flavors are so rich, a little goes a long way. We wish we had seen the "split scoop" option sooner as two scoops is A LOT.

Salt & Straw Ice Cream in Portland is like a stomach flu at a day care center... if you hang around long enough you will end up getting it. I spent nearly 45 minutes in 3 different sittings going over their website looking for flavors which appeared appetizing. At the end of that exercise, I decided not to go there.... More

Salt and Straw represents Portland perfectly. At any given time you will run into a long waiting line which will be worth to wait and is fast moving. Located on Division it might be hard to find parking. As soon as you step in to the shop you will feel the atmosphere, fresh ingredients and culture of employees. Warm and... More

This was very good ice cream with a very long line. While we were there, berries were on tap, so many of the featured flavors included berries… blackberries, marionberries, black raspberries. We tried a sampler of 6 flavors, and none of them disappointed. Here's a hot tip, though -- skip the line by getting a pint or two from the... More

Portland Magazine wrote about it and I just had to see if it had all the dazzle the article stated it had as an "ice cream gem". Well, it is all that and much more. Incredibly friendly service at the counter being, knowledgeable, outgoing to answer your questions, letting people sample the magnificent collection of flavors and in crafting cones... More

Just back from holiday in the US and a 9 night stop with family in Portland. A couple of visits to salt and straw were on the agenda during our busy itinerary and I can safely say it's the best ice cream I have had in a long time!!! Fabulous flavours (highly recommend sea salt with caramel and the strawberry,... More

I think the title pretty much sums it up. I've obsessed over it ever since visiting two years ago....

I sampled many of the interesting flavors, but loved the sea salt and caramel the most! Can't wait to get back to the west coast to visit here again!

Hard to beat this Portland landmark ice cream. We gave it 4 out of 5 because the 2 exotic flavors we picked--olive oil, & pear blue cheese--really weren't that intense or vivid.

My husband and I stopped in the store on Division and joined the others in a small but quickly moving line. I couldn't believe we caught such a short line given everything I'd read about the lines etc. as other reviewers noted you can have as many tastes as you want and I felt I needed. The flavor combinations were... More
