I went here SO excited because I've had their ice cream sandwiches (store bought) before. I was very disappointed when the store bought, pre packaged ice cream sandwich was WAY better than the fresh in store.

While I prefer plain iced cream, I like that they got a bunch of weird flavors for when I is feeling dangerous.

We were introduced to Ruby Jewel from a small restaurant in Vancouver as they serve the RJ Ice Cream sandwiches for dessert. They were great so we looked up the company. Great surprise was finding the retail locations. The service was great and the ice sandwiches were fantastic. I must say the parking sucks. Real pain. But worth fighting.

This is likely the best ice cream in town! The monthly flavors never disappoint and the flight of 6 for $7 is perfect for two!

Some friends and I were in downtown Portland right before this place closed and the staff was super nice and accommodating. They still took our orders as they were cleaning up to close - and set us up with generous portions at best. I would try their different ice cream flavors! i went in and tried several but ended up...

Nice atmosphere. There was a small line, but it moved quickly. Their salted caramel dark chocolate ice cream is to die for. They're very generous with their scooping, so if you want a double just get a single, it's more than plenty. My husband tried his ice cream sandwiched in between two chocolate chip cookies. He said it was amazing,... More

What is better than homemade ice cream sandwiched between 2 homemade cookies. Lucky for me the special cookie of the week was brown sugar pecan, which I had with espresso ice cream. Excellent. Totally worth the vacation calories!

This is a unique little spot that makes homemade ice cream an incredible homemade ice cream sandwiches. We would recommend getting at least two different ice cream sandwiches which will be different than any ice cream sandwich you've ever had before in your lifetime!

In North Portland recently, we walked around Mississippi and loved seeing all of the restaurants. We decided to get a treat at Ruby Jewel My husband chose a prepackaged ice cream sandwich. You can custom order them by choosing cookies and ice cream but we were a little short on time. I ordered a child's scoop of strawberry in a... More

My girlfriend loves ice cream and we love checking out new independently owned businesses. So much to read about the business when your eating your ice cream on the walls. Very comfortable location, both indoor and outdoor seating- all very cute by the way. Plenty of space to stretch your feet and find a nice cool place to talk with... More
