It's "artesian" ice cream, culinary combination that work

So while the ice cream is good, I didn't think it was spectacular. There was not a line there so I didn't have a wait. What was cool and probably is the source of the hype is the creative and interesting nature of the favors. They have vanilla but they also have pear and blue cheese. It's more... read more

Be prepared to take a lot of time finding a parking place, and walking a bit to get there. Then you begin waiting in line. I'd recommend going in Jan. or Feb to avoid the lines. The ice cream is great, very unique flavors fantastic quality. But, plan for a few hours for your ice cream adventure, it just isn't... More

I don't like waiting. I don't like waiting in traffic and I don't like waiting in line for ice cream. I did wait in line for Salt & Straw because I was told that I just HAD to do it. Living in Portland, we are surrounded by good restaurants, bars, donut shops, and ice cream shops. I was just not... More

Oh my gosh. The best ice cream EVER. I'm from Cincinnati, where Graeters ice cream is revered but I think Salt n Straw is better. My favorites? Honey lavender and lemon basil. Sometimes the wait is long but it's worth it.

Great ice cream with an incredible staff that freely hands out flavors to try. They really move the line along quickly so do not be discouraged from going if you see a line. They have everything from the bizarre to my favorite salted carmel. We were recently in Sandpoint, Idaho, and visited a very good ice cream shop. They told... More

Amazing ice-cream with creative flavors. The Salted Caramel is decedent. Every flavor tried has been better than word of mouth could tell.

Being a local S&S aficionado, this location is a favorite. Usually I hit this location while out with friends or dining in SE Portland. For some reason, the line at this location seems to go a little faster than some of the other locations. Like the other locations, the S&S employees are outstanding.

Very good ice cream and interesting flavors. Only downside is that they're quite expensive but it's a nice little treat to do once in awhile.
