You can find Salt & Straw in Seattle, LA, and the internet, but this ice cream spot started in Portland, and it’s still worth the wait to get inside. While you can certainly go with chocolate or vanilla and leave happy, the more unusual and rotating 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.
