“Fresh, innovative ice cream”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

I still dream about this place. It's very popular and the line was so long but it was definitely worth it. Great variety of fresh ice cream flavors.

“Delicious if a bit pricey”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Very unusual ice cream flavors. Seriously, mushroom / port wine ice cream? Try the balsamic vinegar and berry. WOW! Recommend sampling first since some flavors don't taste like they sound. The champagne flavor was a bit bland. The line is long but interesting.

“Great icecream - but do want to wait so long for it”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Yes, they have good ice cream there. Yes, they have interesting kinds of ice there.
But there are other places in Portland with ice of similar quality with much less waiting

“Downright Delicious”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Great place for ice cream. They let you sample as many flavors as you want and you get to try them on real little metal spoons rather than disposable plastic ones, awesome little touch. They have crazy unique flavors and I ended up trying the coffee and burbon which was downright delicious. A must try in Portland.

“Olive oil ice cream? Crazy genius!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We add our voice to the massive throngs who love this place. Salt & Straw has well-earned its reputation and it keeps delivering wonderfully inventive flavour combinations. My favorite is blueberry pancake, my wife prefers the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The mind reels at the thought process that goes into these tasty creations. Accept the mystery and enjoy!
