National Ice-Cream day!
And perfect timing too, with temps today at 95 degrees!
In Portland, we are rather spoilt in the ice-cream department. Salt & Straw being my favorite. With a line snaking around the block at peak times (which is most hours of the day), at any one of its three stores (+ one in LA), it seems it's everyone else's favorite too! I found that mornings are the least busy and it's no hardship having a little ice-cream indulgence before lunch!
Fresh handmade ice-cream with flavors ranging from Stawberry Banana Split to Goat Cheese Marionberry Habenero, and Meyer Lemon Buttermilk and Blueberries to Stumptown Coffee & Burnside Bourbon, it's an adventure for your taste buds for sure. Of course Salt & Straw does have a vanilla (albeit double fold Vanilla) and a Chocolate (with Gooey Brownie) if you don't want to push your ice-cream boundaries. And if you can't decide on what flavor (after sampling a variety), then you can always pick a 'tasting' board' of 4 different flavors - its more than enough to share, if you have to.
With pints to take home and an ice-cream cart to hire for events, Salt & Straw have got Portland covered.
Happy Ice-Cream Day!
