Half the fun of the Salt & Straw experience is the wait. All the people jostling in line, discussing the flavors, peering in the window to see what everyone else is getting.

This place reminds me of a Ice Cream place that my family went to on the Central Coast. We waited in long lines also but the ice cream is outstanding and there flavors are great to try even if you might not care for them, it makes you go out of your comfort food zone!

I love the ice cream but I will be honest, I have no real understanding of why I would ever want to wait this long for ice cream again. It's a ridiculous.

Smooth creamy ice cream with amazing flavor that is worth the wait. Okay sometimes the line wraps around the building and the wait time can be crazy but it is so worth it. Meet new friends while you wait!

Ice cream is rich and creamy with outstanding flavors. Some unique combinations of tastes make this place a part of "Portlandia"

People rant and rave about this place. I just don't understand. Bizarre flavors, long lines, over-priced and over rated.
