Update: Salt & Straw OPEN In Venice. Start S'Creaming.

UPDATE (1/15/2016): They're now open at 1357 AK. Every day, 11-11. To celebrate they invited me to stop for breakfast this morning. Note: it's cool that as an adult I can just have ice cream for breakfast and my Mom isn't mad at me. Did a double scoop of the Meyer Lemon Meringue Pie. Incredible mix of S&S's creamy, velvety base interlaced with deep, citrusy lemon pie notes and filling. It's available until the end of the month. February won't suck either though: the special monthly flavors are all local, artisanal chocolate-based, including Compartes and Choco Vivo.


Salt & Straw, an ice creamery I admire so much (too much?) I demanded my lady go way out of her way to pick it up for our personal Golden Globes viewing party, is finally coming to the westside Friday. Abbot Kinney to be exact. To overstate how great this news is is almost impossible.

S&S produces some of the city's creamiest, most innovative 'scream. I am wholly convinced their signature flavor, Salted, Malted Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, is churned by the Gods. They also do incredible, fresh, seasonal monthly flavors. For example, for January, S&S is rolling out a Candied Clementine and Vanilla Beans and a Meyer Lemon Meringue Pie, amongst others.

I want those now. The good news: with a westside location I won't have to send my lass to Larchmont to get them for me. Now I can send myself
to Venice. I suggest you follow suit.

Salt & Straw.
1357 Abbot Kinney, Venice.
11 am - 11 pm, daily.
