50 Licks

It’s been so warm in Portland this summer, but luckily we have a lot of delicious ice cream stores to try! 50 Licks is just around the corner from Portland Digs. They have very creative flavors that are a bit more subtle than similar artisanal ice cream shops. I like subtle. I tried jasmine tea ice cream, a coconut saffron vegan flavor, and ended up purchasing Tahitian vanilla with bee pollen as topping. Yum. I got it in a cup out of habit, but then found out that their waffle cones are gluten-free! She gave me one for free since I was so excited about that. Also fun, is the art on the walls. They are common pastoral landscapes that you might find in a second hand store, but someone has painted in giant ice cream cones.

New Cascadia Traditional

We are so spoiled in Portland with dedicated gluten-free bakeries. New Cascadia Traditional is pretty close to my house; I’m a regular. My favorite treat is their pecan cashew bar, but everything is delicious. Funny thing, although I’m not vegan I do prefer the vegan cupcakes to the dairy version. The coffee bar is good, with alternative milk options. The rustic baguettes are incredibly hearty. (In a future post I will have to tell you about Devil’s Dill, which uses¬†their baguettes for incredible gluten-free sandwiches.) Visit their website.
