Perched on a sunny corner of the lakeside community’s main drag, our Lake Oswego scoop shop looks out on the neighborhood with wall-to-wall windows that turn any day into a perfect day for ice cream. Before we opened the doors of this bright space just south of Portland, our ice cream cart could often be found at the Lake Oswego Farmers Market and summer concerts in the park. Over the years, we couldn’t help falling in love with the city’s friendly, welcoming vibes, so we chose the location of the scoop shop to sit in the middle of all that Lake Oswego has to offer—steps away from the lake, a short jaunt to riverside parks, and nestled next to the great shops, restaurants, and small businesses that make the oh-so-walkable downtown a perfect place to stroll with a cone.
Our NW shop is in the historic Esquire Building that has a history as a variety of theaters, coffee shops and ice cream parlors (or at least they called the backdoor entrance an ‘ice parlor’ during prohibition).
Our Division shop is on Portland’s ‘Restaurant Row.’ SE Division street is one of the most exciting streets in Portland for culinary enthusiasts. It’s home to one of Portland’s James Beard Award winning chefs, Andy Ricker, at Pok Pok; one of Bon Appetit’s top restaurants of the year, Ava Genes; one of The Oregonian’s top pizza places (and amazing bakery), Roman Candle; one of America’s Top Chef Masters, Jenn Louis, at Sunshine Tavern…and more!
Our Alberta shop is in Portland’s iconic Arts District. We wanted to open our first shop on Alberta because the street epitomizes our values around supporting strong community. The neighborhoods that make up Alberta Street have invested over the years in creating a special place to gather…that the whole city of Portland has come to love.
