Seetha G., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on March 22, wrote, "After trying a couple of flavors, I chose to indulge in the smoked sea salt and chocolate crack and honey lavender in a delicious waffle cone. The flavors were all so unique, with a number of vegan options as well! And the scoops were enormous."
Yelper Natasha F. added, “The ice cream is delicious, uses fresh local ingredients, and made in small batches. The inside is very cute and I love the wood interior.”
Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Salt & Straw is open from 11 a.m.–11 p.m. daily.
