Salt and Straw is a premium ice cream shop located in Portland. They have all the classic ice cream flavours, but they are best known for their innovative flavour combinations.
My family made a last stop here on our way home from Portland. The inside of the shop is very cute, bright, and inviting.
I’m always happy when I see a dairy free sorbet on the menu. The one they had when I visited was the passionfruit Berliner Weisse in coconut water sorbet. This was part of their special line of ice creams that utilized local beer.
I got my cone in a cup for portability purposes. The guy working there called it a “wizard hat”, which made me laugh because I’m a nerd.
The coconut milk made this sorbet very refreshing and not overly sweet. There was a ripple of the passionfruit berliner weisse throughout the sorbet that added a hint of sweetness.
Salt and Straw was a cute store and their ice cream was great. Anyone could find a flavour they liked here and they have flavours that you can’t find anywhere else. It is definitely worth stopping by for a cold treat if you are in Portland.
Yes, for a cute ice cream shop with creative flavours.
