The Fifty Licks Ice Cream Shop Opens April 28; Take a Tour

East Burnside gets one of the hottest ice cream shops in the city

One of Portland’s best ice cream and sorbet shops opens its second location today, April 28. Fifty Licks will begin scooping its eggy, small-batch flavors at noon, at 2742 E Burnside, and as the photos show above, the new, 1000-square-foot ice cream parlor features a long birch counter for faster service as well as birch-wood booths, capable of seating 23.

“The new shop is built out of 20-percent birch and 80-percent sweat,” writes owner Chad Draizin on Facebook. Fifty Licks opened its first location on SE Clinton Street in 2013, and its follow-up will bring a bit more space but the same seasonal ice creams, sorbets, boozy sorbets, and ice cream floats — with a selection by the pint for grabbing on the go. The shop prides itself on using real ingredients and making the base for its ice creams in-house.

Starting today, Fifty Licks 2.0 operates Sunday through Thursday, from noon to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, from noon to midnight.
