Portland, Oregon's best ice cream?

I am headed to Portland next month. I love ice cream. Where will I find Portland's best?

Thank you!

Salt & Straw is the latest craze here. I haven't been yet, so can't comment. Tillamook ice cream is available in most stores, and it is very good. You could also head to Lake Oswego to the Ice Creamery for it though.

We have a few good gelato places as well. Mio Gelato is my favorite, but there are others.

BTW, when you are at the Surfsand they have Tillamook ice cream there.

Salt and Straw looks very interesting, mms.

Looking forward to my stay, I will try the ice cream and the gelato (and the BEER!)

Love the title -- the world of ice cream, that's been my motto!

In the early '80's, I could tell you where ever Baskin Robbins was in England and France.

This place was really good. The texture of their ice cream was so different and delightful.

But I think my favorite is still Scoop, the ice cream truck. http://www.scooppdx.com
Their salted caramel is so richly flavored and perfect in every way.
Some might point you to Ruby Jewel but not me, I think their products are way too sweet.

Still haven't made it to Salt and Straw, either.

I love Mio Gelato (haven't been to the others mentioned) but they apparently have closed their location in Irvington (NE Portland) and moved to 25 NW 11th Ave in the Pearl District and are now called Morso.

If you can find the time to make it to the coast, make a stop at the Tillamook cheese factory. In addition to many great cheeses they make great ice cream.
