“Creative Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This place has flavors of ice cream that one would think came out of a fairy tale. And it works, they are delicious. You can spend as much time sampling the fascinating creations (they are very patient) as actually making a decision and delving into your delicious cone of wonder.

“Yes, Please!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

From the moment u walk through the door until your last spoonful, you are amazed! The flavor are so unique that you want to sample all of their flavors. Don't be shy to order half scoops of two of your favorites.

“Worth the wait in line...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

And I really don't like waiting in line! It was a short wait - 15 minutes, maybe, and the ice cerams we tried were amazing. We loved the blue cheese + pear & the lavender honey. Will be back to try more. Great vibe, friendly staff! Love it!

“Holding my breath this place upholds its quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Long lines are a "nevermind" when you are rewarded with this quality of ice cream. The variety and the ingenuity are impressive, as well. My favorite brands are filled with rum and cheese and pear. I am not as adventurous as allowing bacon in my ice cream, but if you feel like something unusual, then go for it! They let you try any number of yummities and the only pressure is the line behind you, that is the eye gazes that drill the back of your skull secretly passing you the message "O, come on, order already and let me have my ice cream!"

“Yummy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Ate ice cream here, even though it was cold and rainy. You will not be disappointed if you love excellent quality ice cream, unique flavors (as well as regular choices) regardless of the weather. Take the Portland streetcar over to the Northwest district, have some ice cream and walk up and down 23rd and 21st streets.
