    It just doesn't get better than Salt & Straw and I'm an ice cream snob. Try the Strawberry Honey Balsamic, the Oregon Rocky Road, or the Sea Salt with Caramel. You can't go wrong with anything!

    While I don't recommend you abuse the power, they'll let you try every flavor on the menu. They deserve a big tip for that. Live on the edge and get something new. My go to is olive oil.

    The best I've cream I have ever had. There are always weird and somehow delicious flavors like Bone Marrow & Smoked Cherry. My favorite is the Coffee & Bourbon. Honey Lavender is a very close second.

    The best ice cream with very authentic flavors. You can ask a sample of each and every of them. Few, but very delicious options for vegans (peach cobbler is a must try) are available as well

    Amazing ice cream. I had the one with lucky charms and it was fantastic. Line was out the door and down the street on a rainy, cold Monday night, so plan for a big wait.

    Try the vegan ice cream. It rules. I can't do milk, but I'm also amused by the very stoner-centric special flavors of ice cream they have too - like breakfast cereal.

    Limited-edition ice cream flavors from “rescued food,” drawing attention to how 40% of our food supply in the United States goes into the trash. Try the spent brewer’s malts and candied bacon s’mores. Read more

    surprisingly, as good as I expected. The White Toast Apple Butter and Cinnamon Snickerdoodle were perfect. Plus our incredible server treated us as a welcome to Portland 👍

    New limited edition flavors each month. Feel free to try them all before you order & drop your spoon down the chute in the counter! 17% butterfat is where it's at!

    For the perfect treat, get their cinnamon snickerdoodle ice cream, made with Red Ape Cinnamon from Eugene and homemade snickerdoodle cookies. Read more

    AMAZING ice cream. Worth waiting in line (which goes fast). I chose with the Goat Cheese w/ Marionberry Habaneo and Snickerdoodle. YUM.

    The best ice cream I've had in my life. Be sure to ask for 2-3 samples so you can pick your favorite before you buy.

    The rose and pistachio (seasonal) and the strawberry balsamic and black pepper , look out for the seasonal menu in the right door.

    Worth the wait in the queue! Unusual flavours and very big ice cream! Definitely need to try in the home made waffle cone

    Expect insane lines just for ice cream at any given time of day/weather. Definitely worth the wait since it's extremely delicious.

    May Flowers! If looking for something refreshing from the heat, try the Wasabi Flowers & Green Apple Sorbet It uses wasabi FLOWERS, not the actual wasabi, so it is not spicy, but amazingly refreshing.

    Sea salt with caramel and chocolate gooey brownie ice creams on a homemade waffle cone, you won't be disappointed

    First time here - extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. We tried a number of flavors and weren’t hurried in the least. Ended up getting the almond brittle - yum!

    A scene at night, prepare to wait but it was pretty tasty. The meat flavors aren't as good as they sound but the coffee and vanilla based ones were off the hook.

    There's usually a couple pretty solid vegan/dairy-free flavors but the waffle cone has a little dairy (they usually warn you too :D )

    Yes, it's the place that's 80% queuing and 20% ice cream but man that 20% beats nearly everywhere else's 100%.

    Honey lavender is as delicious as it is beautiful. Split scoop with strawberry rhubarb pie is perfection.

    Strange taste combos but really tasty! Don't let your fear of "odd" taste combos in your ice cream scare you off.... Go go the gusto!

    If you are just buying pints, you don't have to wait in the line. Grab your pints from the freezer and take them to the cashier.

    Go after 11pm once the lines die down. Stumptown Coffee and Burnside Bourbon ice cream FTW

    go during the day when there's no line so you can take your time and taste all the flavors freely.

    Probably the least crowded Salt & Straw in Portland. Trying out new season's flavored are always fun!

    Try four flavors in a flight for only $9! Great way to sample.
  • Jay T.
    Everything is great here. The strawberry, balsamic vinegar & black pepper is amazing and the one with olive oil is a standout.

    ICE CREAM. Try a taste of anything weird they have on the menu but get a cone of something more straight forward.

    Pretty much NO LINES. Don't go to the location in SW- come to the SE, eat Pok Pok, and wash it down with salt & straw.

    Most of the flavors are fantastic! However, the coffee & bourbon just tastes like coffee.

    Pro tip: you can grab a carton from the freezer and walk to the front of the line.

    Skip the line, 30 min wait when its wrapped around the building just walk in, head back and pick up a couple pints! Then its off to the register to pay while everyone says "why didn't we do that?"
  • Mike D.
    Get in line. It moves way faster than you think. And, yeah, worth the wait.

    It was just ok, a little over hyped like most trendy eateries here in PDX. The organic blueberry chocolate gelato at Caffe Pallino, right down the street, was better.

    Funky rotating flavors that has a cult following in PDX and attracts out-of-towners from around the universe.
