So good!

We had heard about Salt & Straw from friends in NYC; it lived up to expectations. Favorite flavor: Strawberry/balsamic/peppercorn.

I really did not appreciate the ice cream. I think I prefer sweeter ice cream. Everyone else seemed to love. Expect to wait.

Honestly the best ice-cream I've ever had! The servers gave us tasters to help us decide which flavor you want. The place is small so you might have to stand and eat but def worth it.

Salt n straw really is the best ice cream on the west coast. I have tried many flavors but my go to all time favorite is the arbequina olive oil flavor; which to me is a magnificent and slightly savory vanilla. Please open in CA!!!!!!

The line was out the door and down the block, just as we'd been warned; but it moved quickly enough. Once inside, the friendly and helpful servers really encouraged us to try as many flavors as we wanted before choosing. And what flavors they are! Strawberry with balsamic and pepper. I know it sounds weird, but the touches are amazing.... More

Not only was the ice cream delicious, the customer service was so fantastic. They took their time explaining things to us and even had a great collaboration going with a local elementary school.

The ice cream is RICH and the scoops are large. Personally, I can only handle a kids' scoop, but the seasonal flavors are really fun and often transcendent. The frequent line is part of the fun, and it's a testament to Salt & Straw that a line will form even when it snows.

there is a long line but it moves quickly and the staff is excellent about not rushing you but they do an awesome job of serving you quickly. Their waffle cones are made on site...a definite must! So delicious and their unique flavor combinations are genius and delicious.

Waited in line for about 20 minutes before bailing for a hand-packed pint and two spoons. Got the Sea Salt and Caramel Ribbons and can honestly say this is the best ice cream I've ever had. Unlike every other salted caramel product I've had, it's not the caramel that's salty. Instead the ice cream was "salt" and the caramel was... More

Salt and Straw ice cream is not to be missed! Their ice cream concoctions are not only creative but delicious!! This is a must visit in Portland if your into ice cream that has the scoop and leaves other creameries scrapping the barrel so to speak. With flavors like Arbequina Olive Oil, Pear and Blue Cheese, Spicy Monkey Banana Walnut,and... More
