Salt & Straw

The limited ice cream flavors for April 2023 at Salt & Straw are part of the “The Vault Series.” The series features five iconic flavors that are no longer on the regular menu.

These flavors are:

  • Black Olive Brittle & Goat Cheese – Shards of sweet-but-salty butter brittle made from cured black olives are mixed into an ultra-creamy cave-aged goat cheese ice cream created with Cypress Grove Creamery. It’s a favorite among foodies like celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern.
  • Honey Marshmallow Rocky Road – Fresh Jacobsen honey is cooked down and whipped into gobs of pillowy marshmallow, then gently folded into chocolate ice cream spiced with cinnamon and ancho chili. Hazelnuts candied in a sugary, shattery glaze are then studded throughout.
  • Mango Habanero IPA Sorbet (vegan) – This sorbet features Laces IPA from Wynwood Brewing (Miami’s first craft brewery) spun until frozen, spiced with fresh habanero, and cooled off with mangoes and citrus.
  • Strawberry Cilantro Lime Cheesecake – A toasty graham cracker crust is folded into a delicate strawberry ice cream, then adorned with a ribbon of cilantro lime cheesecake for a zesty finish.
  • Sweet Corn & Waffle Cones – Fresh golden corn is torched until charred and roasty, then tossed into a corn flavored ice cream wrapped in ribbons of brown butter caramel. Bite-sized bits of chocolate-covered waffle cone add a sweet crunch to this delightfully buttery, unexpectedly cozy ice cream.


The bakery is offering several limited cupcake flavors throughout April 2023. Here are some of the flavors:

  • Through April 9: Chocolate Bunny – Dark chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache, topped with chocolate cream cheese frosting and finished with a ladle of decadent chocolate ganache.
  • Through April 9: Easter Fancy Sprinkle – A red velvet cake topped with cream cheese frosting and finished with exclusive Easter sprinkles by Fancy Sprinkles.
  • Through April 16: Berries & Cream – A pie crust lined blueberry studded vanilla cake cored and filled with blueberry pie filling, then frosted with vanilla buttercream and finished with lilac sugar crystals.
  • April 17 – May 14: Vietnamese Coffee – Vietnamese coffee cake made with Nguyen Coffee Supply Loyalty Coffee, filled with a condensed milk butter cream, and finished with coffee frosting.
