We were staying in downtown Portland and craved ice cream after dinner. The closest place was Ruby Jewel. They have some interesting flavors but nothing that swept me off my feet. It is very popular but next time I might choose another place.

Get here early because it is very popular. Dessert first! Flavors change so come often. The ice cream is smooth and rich. Some gluten free and vegan options available. Recommended.

Delicious hand-crafted ice cream with options to please anyone looking for a frozen treat. Stand in line for build-your-own ice cream sandwiches complete with freshly baked cookies, a "flight" of flavors (maybe the best option for your money), or a cone. There is a grab...More

We read many great reviews about this place so I was prepared to be blown away. It was good, but not great. We made a long walk from our hotel and stumbled over a number of homeless beggars to get there for average ice cream....More
