we all scream for ice-cream

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!

  1. I so wanted to try their ice cream when I was there in March, but we just didn't have enough time to go to all the places on my list. Looks amazing! We have had our share of ice cream this week too!


Thanks for stopping by.
