Salt and Straw Ice Cream
Originating in 2011 in Portland, Oregon, Salt & Straw has quickly become a West Coast favorite for inspired ice cream flavors made with intention. The family-run business opened in Old Pasadena in late 2019 as the company’s first scoop shop in the San Gabriel Valley - it joins LA locations in the Arts District, Venice, and Larchmont Village, Studio City, and West Hollywood.
Known for its curiously delicious flavors – including custom menu favorites exclusive to LA like Black Olive Brittle & Goat Cheese and Malted Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - Salt & Straw also features classics such as Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, James Coffee & Bourbon, and Roasted Strawberry & Toasted White Chocolate. All flavors are handmade in small batches using organic, sustainable and thoughtfully-sourced ingredients such as cream from Scott Brothers Dairy, a family-owned Southern California farm.
The cozy Old Pasadena location features a nostalgic-meets-modern design, with the use of curved oak edges, parquet wood inlay, custom terrazzo flooring, and a window bar that invites guests to enjoy their ice cream while taking in the vibrancy of Pasadena’s iconic Colorado Boulevard.
