Los Angeles
Ice Cream Shop
$$$$

Ice cream is more than just a sweet treat at this Westwood parlor - it’s an experience. Using traditional Persian methods by adding ground orchid root to their batches, Saffron & Rose creates ice cream that is lusciously creamy, rich, and slightly thicker in texture than your average American creams. The flavor offerings are nuanced and aroma-obsessed, with menu highlights including orange blossom, cucumber, and lavender. Don’t let the line deter you – these fragrant fro-yos are worth the wait.

Some people say Persian ice cream (known for its stretchy consistency) isn’t for them because the signature flavors—such as Lavender, White Rose, and Jasmine—are reminiscent of perfume. Don’t listen to the naysayers. Located in Westwood’s Little Tehran, Saffron & Rose often has a line of eager customers snaking out the door, waiting for its dense, gooey ice creams (and yes, flavors that often sound like fragrance notes but taste incredible). If you’re into sweet-tasting scoops, they’ve got you covered with milky Cookies and Cream or a luscious Caramel Crunch, while those with a preference for fruity flavors should order the light, delightfully refreshing Cucumber or Watermelon.
