Amazing service makes up for the long lines, not to mention the best icecream flavors you'll get in Portland. Try as many flavors as you can, it's worth it! Some sound off the wall, but are perfectly paired.

What a fun area to eat. Many choices for lunch and/or dinner and a must stop is salt and straw! We moved to Florida panhandle and haven’t found such creativity and quality here. Come for ice cream every visit home!
