Ranked as one of Portland’s top food carts, Hurry Back Ice Cream is open year round in the Sellwood district – yes, right through those cold wet winter months. They’re closed on Mondays, but open for the remaining days of the week from “noonish” into the late evening.
They scoop classic dairy ice cream but also have non-dairy “the absence of cow” flavors. These dairy-free and vegan varieties are made with velvety coconut milk, cream of coconut, and cane sugar. Repeat flavors include Ghirardelli Chocolate Coconut, French Roast Coconut, and Pineapple Coconut. Limited edition and seasonal options can include Blueberry Coconut, Oreo, Pecan Coconut, or White Chocolate Macadamia Raspberry Swirl Coconut. Each small batch is made right in their food cart, so availability can vary.
You can top your scoop with rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles, or chocolate sauce – all are dairy free. And enjoy it in there cake cones, waffle cones, or waffle bowls. Their cones and bowls are made without dairy, but do contain wheat and soy.
And when you feel like something special, you can order a float! Their floats can be ordered with any ice cream (including the dairy-free flavors). They use Henry Weinhard’s root beer, cherry soda, and orange cream soda, which don’t list any dairy items in the ingredients.
Hand-packed pints and quarts to go are available to order. Just call or text them via the phone number below or make a request while enjoying a scoop.
