People routinely line up in January, in the rain, to eat Salt & Straw’s ice cream and yes, it really is that good. They make the most popular ice cream in the city and work with local candy makers and bakers on seasonal flavors that will make you wonder how you can start pairing ingredients like rose petals and molé in your daily life. However, their classic flavors, like pear and blue cheese, are just as interesting and definitely worth trying too. They have five 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.
