Treat Tour

A Sweet Capitol Hill Dessert Crawl

A bar crawl on the Hill? Please. Forgo the hangover and opt instead for a sugar rush.

Truth be told, the long lines at Salt and Straw are worth it.

1. Hello Robin: Kick things off with birthday sprinkle cookies and Mackles’mores—or make yourself a sweet sandwich with Molly Moon’s ice cream to eat on the walk to Pike/Pine.

2. Cupcake Royale: A pastry case of cupcakes—red velvet, lavender, coconut—pair with the shop’s equally rich ice cream lineup.

3. Frankie and Jo’s: The vegan sorbets and ice “creams” stacked inside a gluten-free cone still deliver much flavor, hence the queue down the block.

4. Salt and Straw: Portland’s dairy dessert import delivers brainy flavors worth the wait.

5. Hot Cakes: Molten chocolate cakes, freshly roasted-to-order s’mores, boozy shakes, and a guaranteed sugar rush.
