Salt and Straw Ice Cream


5420 Ballard Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107 


Looking for a unique sweet treat in the Puget Sound area? You have to try Salt & Straw! With three locations to choose from in Ballard, Capitol Hill, and Kirkland, it’s the perfect place to indulge in some delicious ice cream. Their small-batch approach and taste-provoking flavors have made them a family favorite since being founded by cousins Kim and Tyler Malek in Portland, Oregon in 2011. Not only do they offer classic flavors such as Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons and Honey Lavender, but they also have rotating seasonal menus that vary from city to city. And the best part? You can even order their ice cream online and have it shipped anywhere in the United States. They’re also dedicated to supporting local farmers, artisans, and schools, making them a great addition to the Seattle community. Don’t miss out on trying their special collaboration flavors with local stars like Beecher’s cheese, Ellenos yogurt, and Westland whiskey!

Can I Order Online?

Looking for a refreshing treat to cool you down in the summer heat? You’re in luck! Salt & Straw is now offering ice cream pints for both pick-up and local delivery through their website. By ordering online, you can skip the long lines that tend to form outside their shop on warm days. Don’t worry though – the lines move quickly, and while you wait an employee will even offer you a sample of any flavor that catches your eye. With their menu constantly changing, you never know what new and exciting ice cream flavors you might discover. Be sure to try the ones exclusive to Seattle!
