Super friendly and when I asked him to get a clean scoop he offered to open a sealed pint and scoop from that with a fresh spoon. Ice cream was fresh. I’ve cream was DELICIOUS.

We had the Vegan Peanut butter caramel brittle amazingness. So full of flavor. The staff was very knowledgeable about allergies and took the time to go over the ingredients. 10/10

reiterating what another reviewer already said - they are very cautious when you inform them of any allergy. they check their cheat sheet for each flavor you want to sample, and then once you’ve picked your flavor they will either use a fresh “allergy scoop” or just go all the way to the back to scoop it from an unused tub. really appreciate the care and attention to detail. super kind and helpful staff too! not to mention the ice cream is fabulous. do yourself a favor and get some ice cream here!!! there is no clear indication on the menu of what’s GF (it’s sort of the obvious cookie dough/brownie/etc type flavors that aren’t) but have no fear, they will make sure a flavor is safe before handing you a sample.

Staff are very knowledgeable and proactively ask about allergies and cross contamination. Allergen information is easily available, and if you indicate that cross contamination is an issue, they scoop your ice cream from special containers in the back.

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!

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.

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.

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!
