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.

Staff was knowledgeable in telling me what was GF. Mint chocolate chip was delicious, and vegan too!

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!

The best vegan ice cream I’ve ever had. The mint chip was so creamy and decadent that it was impossible to tell the difference between the non vegan ice cream.

You have the option to get your scoops in a bowl and watch them prepare all of the orders so I knew there wasn’t any cross contamination with the waffle cones or ice cream containing gluten.

They ask every customer if you have any allergies. Had no problem asking them to scoop from the back to avoid cross contamination. They were very accommodating.

What a cute and fun place! The one worker not only asked another about the GFDF ice cream options (that were clearly listed) but he also went over and got the ingredients list to make SURE my daughter could have it! They are absolutely mindful and helpful when it comes to eating there w allergies. My daughter LOVED the Mint Chip! No reaction!

Salt and Straw was AMAZING!!! I went in on Saturday with a group and ordered last. The server was aware that I was unable to eat gluten, so he went in the back grabbed a new scoop, opened a new pint of LAVENDER HONEY ice cream which was incredible and had no problems at all, everyone enjoyed!!

They have a set up for allergies—new scoops, newly opened pint, etc. Seemed very safe.
