Transplanted from the hipster-foodie capital of the west (Portland, of course), Larchmont's craft creamery Salt & Straw puts an artisanal churn on the standard scoop. Their extensive menu boasts flavors both sinful and curious including Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache, Freckled Woodblock Chocolate, Avocado Strawberry Sherbert and Santa Ynez Valley Walnut Oil—many of which feature ingredients exclusive to Southern California, reflecting the company's "farm-to-cone" philosophy. The best part? You don't have to choose just one. For $10, guests can opt for an ice cream flight including your choice of four flavors from both classic and seasonal menus. The pristine globules are served in healthy scoops across four individual glass bowls, presented on a (undoubtedly reclaimed) wood tray. Can't decide which to pick? Salt & Straw's staffers, who are about as chipper as you'd expect artisanal ice cream scoopers to be, are thrilled to help you assemble the perfectly complementary quartet.

I love Salt & Straw. Maybe because they have an ever changing monthly menu that makes it exciting to go in every time, or maybe it's because they let you sample EVERY SINGLE FLAVOR, or maybe it's because their ice cream is top quality and delicious.... whatever the reason, I love coming here every chance I can!
Extremely high quality ice cream with unique, fun flavors to boast. An enthusiastic and friendly team of ice cream scoopers too! I have never had so much fun sampling ice cream until I started coming to Salt&Straw.
Salt & Straw is amazing—from their always-creative flavors to chef collaborations to community fundraisers, they are everything that's good about ice cream.
I first visited Salt & Straw in Portland and was so excited to see it in LA! They have a ton of out-of-the-box flavors, which makes it exciting to choose from. This place is definitely worth visiting if you're in Larchmont Village.
The "salt" part of this place is the only reason why I am giving this place 3 stars. While some of the flavors are ok, the salt part of their ice creams seems to overwhelm. I also happen to simply like basic, old fashioned ice cream, so perhaps if you're more adventurous with your ice cream you will like this place.
My favorite part about Salt & Straw is how they incorporate LA products into their ice cream: Compartes chocolate, Stumptown coffee, even employing Roy Choi at one point to come up with his own flavor. It may hail from Portland, but the LA branch definitely embraces this city. Lines can be a bit long and scoops are pricey - it's artisanal ice cream after all - but it's definitely worth a stop if you're in Larchmont Village.
