I was able to look online ahead of time to see ingredient lists. I confirmed with the server inside that the flavor I wanted was gluten free, he was pretty informative and knew the product. He did scoop from same tub as everyone else's ice cream.

Salt & Straw takes allergens pretty seriously, this was yet another successful experience at one of their locations. Long line but it moved quickly.

Upon ordering simply mentioned celiac/gluten 'allergy' - I knew what I wanted was GF before I arrived, half honey lavender half strawberry honey balsamic with black pepper. My sever wanted to double check anyway on his allergen list which I appreciated. He asked if he could make the rest of my parties ice cream then would do mine in the back from unopened containers/clean scoop. It took quite some time so I have faith their implemented allergen procedures were followed. Ice cream was excellent, especially the strawberry my favorite! Many GF options available!

So many ice cream places will not accommodate me on getting ice cream from clean containers in the back so I really appreciate Salt & Straw making this easy at any location. Training goes a long way and it shows!

Ordered 2 of the limited edition Harvest Festival Series seasonal flavors and the taste was yummy! It wasn't so sweet at all.

Excellent ice cream with staff that asked about allergies and was knowledgeable about what was gluten free and they had several vegan options as well. The strawberry honey balsamic ice cream was actually quite tasty and they had a good range of wacky and normal flavors!

This was a great experience all around. Friendly staff, interesting flavors, great ice cream. I got the double vanilla (risk free choice) and some sort of vegan mint chocolate chip. I am not vegan, and it was good.

The staff apologized for having to scoop our ice cream from the back. There are waffle cones everywhere, so that was no problem with us. We stepped aside, and they brought our ice cream out to us safe from cross contamination. Great job.

An ice cream shop for all! Being both vegan & gluten free, I was so happy to enjoy The Cloudforest Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies & Cream. Please open shops in NY.

I stumbled upon this place without any prior research. Their menu marks which ice creams contain wheat. I was pleasantly surprised when staff members were taking requests for samples from guests in line and asked first if you had any allergies. When I said gluten, he then asked if I needed to be careful about cross-contamination. As a Celiac, I do, and he didn’t hesitate. He knew exactly what to do. He grabbed fresh pints out of the to-go freezer and scooped my samples (and my eventual order) from there. I was so impressed!

As for the ice cream, when they say salt, they aren’t kidding. I LOVE salted caramel ice cream but this was too salty for me. Instead I got a seasonal offering with lemons and blueberries that turned out to be vegan, but you could have fooled me. So creamy!

Lots of GF options, check online for ingredients. I asked for a clean scoop and they offered to also scoop from a fresh pint. Very friendly and accommodating, and delicious!

I had such a good experience here!! The staff washed hands, used clean scoops, and opened new pints for me to sample ice cream with, and then to fill my cup of ice cream. Super knowledgeable about GF (including cross contamination) and the ice cream was delicious!

They have their allergens listed on their website for each flavor! I told them I had a gluten allergy and she went to get a fresh scoop from the back to prevent cross contamination!

Gf not labeled on the menu, however the employees who hand out samples have a guide right on top of each item to let you know. I have also found looking online is a easy way to see.

Finally tried this place after much hype from my students over the years. I must say I wasn’t overly impressed. It was good though not great. I appreciated the vegan options (better than most) and their precautions to prepare my ice cream separately since I must be gluten free. They were also knowledgeable about which flavors were GF without having to check or look it up. Good place although not the best in LA area.
