Salt & Straw
Even though Salt and Straw is now in a ton of cities and available for nationwide shipping, this ice cream spot started in Portland and is still worth the lines. While you can find the usual chocolate and vanilla, the more unusual and seasonal flavors—like rose petals and molé or pear and blue cheese—are where the real action is. They have three locations around the city, but we like the original on Alberta since you can walk around the nearby Arts District while you enjoy a scoop or two.
