The line/wait was very long, as it always is. We had heard so many good reviews of their ice cream. We all 4 ordered a different flavor, and we all agreed it was some of the worst ice cream we had ever had. All 4 flavors tasted watery, and without much flavor

The line was down the street and around the corner, but it moves fast and the ice cream is worth the wait. Get a big bowl and enjoy it as you walk around town.

The ice cream here is first rate. However, not sure I'd wait an hour in line for it on a regular basis. A "must try" for anyone visiting the Portland area. For those of us who live here, I'd rather buy a pint or two, bring it home and enjoy.

This place is dope! Simply put...there is no better ice cream anywhere. What stands out: 1. Unique flavors! 2. Unmatched taste. 3. Unbeatable quality. 4. Unlimited sampling of flavors! 5. Fun staff. Go get in line and buy a scoop!

Fabulous gourmet ice cream but overrun by throngs of young adults seemingly annoyed by a random child excited about ice cream. No place to sit, ever, and long lines.

The most unusual and yummy ice cream in Portland. Sometimes there's lines out the door so be prepared to wait but the beauty is you can sample everything.

So many amazing, interesting, ecclectic flavors that are fresh and homemade. The servers were extremely generous with tastings, too.

If this isn't a Portland staple, I don't know what is. What better way to kick off the New Year than to add more calories?? We went on a freezing post-holiday day when they just opened (so no wait!). We were able to sample quite a bit of flavors, more like All the January flavors and some of the regular... More

One of the best iced cream shoppes in America bar none. This totally lives up to the hype and I hope it goes national

Small-batch, chef-driven ice cream made by hand with local ingredients since 2011. We hope you love it!
