With Crumbs Bake Shop Inc. delisted from the NASDAQ by the first of July, it came as little surprise to locals when the boulevard's poorly rated cupcake shop announced its closing by the end of the business day on July 7th, Monday.

S&S LA will be featuring signature house flavors, including quite possibly the Portland favorite Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, plus limited edition monthly specials.
Expected flavors in September: Tomato Water Olive Oil Sherbet, Carrot Watermelon Sorbet, Melon & Prosciutto Ice Cream, Bone Marrow & Bourbon Smoked Cherries…

Salt & Straw Ice Cream is a small-batch ice cream creator that partners with local artisans, producers and farmers to create unique and gourmet flavors. They started serving eight flavors from an ice cream cart in Portland in May 2011 and then moved to their first brick and mortar location in the city by August 2011 with an expanded ice-cream flavor menu and sundaes, inventive milkshakes and floats.
The company's name is a nod to the origins of ice-cream making, when cream was churned in a tin pail packed with salt (to keep it cool) and straw (to insulate it from heat).
