Yes, really, and unbelievably good. After several tastings offered by the wonderfully friendly ice cream seller., I settled on a fine pairing of pear with blue cheese and honey lavender. It was a nice way to end our last evening in Portland....very crowded. I was treated to dessert, so can't speak to cost, but know it must be pricey.

The wait for this ice cream is worth it. There are so many great flavors and they are unique and wonderful. I got a kids cup and when I tasted it went back through the line and ordered a small. They are very patient and will let you sample as many flavors as you want. Really loved that our family... More

The line was short so we had to stop. I was one of two newbies in our group of five. They let you sample and the employees are so friendly! Typical pricing for an ice cream place. I would wait in line next time!

There is no other place to have ice cream. Compared to Salt & Straw, no comparisons. It's simply the best anywhere. Unfortunately, there's a long long line all the time.A TESTAMENT to the quality. So many normal and odd-ball varieties of ice cream.

Some of the flavors seem to have been developed just for the "shock" value rather than for being good. Definitely worth experiencing, but I don't think the prices make S&S worth a repeat visit.

This place is a perfect example of how Portland culture is being packaged up and sold back to us. Local ingredients (tillamook ice cream) + the random repurposed token decoration + random ingredients does not equal a good ice cream parlor worthy of #1 in Portland. It is very touristy, trendy and not that good. You cant just throw in... More

I barely like ice-cream so the idea of standing in a long line to get it was pure insanity ... that is until I did it one night. Ice-cream is not normally what I would choose for a treat but now if there is an opportunity for a cone from Salt and Straw, get out of my way. True, the... More

This is a great break stop to enjoy an ice cream or yogurt cone. A very young and fun crowd of people.

The line looked long but moved quickly, service was friendly, helpful and efficient. The ice cream is sensational! Very different and unique flavors. Try as many samples as you want! Fun atmosphere too, we'll be back! :-)

I started trying different flavors and was helped with a really down to earth, friendly girl. she didn't even seem to mind getting me taste after taste. she even described how... More
