Salt & Straw
No list of Portland ice creameries is complete without Salt & Straw. Since its inception in 2011, there is a constant line out the door at all of its local locations—as well as its other West Coast shops in Seattle, L.A., and San Diego—and for good reason. The ice cream is made with care, along with some of the most peculiar flavors you could think of, including pear and blue cheese, strawberry honey balsamic with black pepper, and Arbequina olive oil. They may sound strange, but they’re delicious. We promise.
