With summer temperatures in the triple digits, it’s more important than ever to stay cool. When you’re in beautiful Southern Oregon, you can beat the heat by picnicking under the shade in the local parks, rafting down the wild Rogue River, or indulging in artisan ice cream.

While our river guides have spent numerous hours on the water, they love to head to dry land for a scoop or two of local ice cream.

There are many awesome ice cream parlors throughout the Rogue Valley, but our river guides especially love Mix, located in Ashland.

Sweet, Savory & More

Mix makes their fresh ice cream using organic dairy products from Straus Creamery, and other local ingredients. Whether you prefer your ice cream in a cup or cone, Mix serves up some of the best cool treats around.

Offering a variety of refreshing treats, Mix also has a main menu of flavors you will find on their online store. If you want to order your ice cream in advance, choose either a pint or quart-sized container of chocolate truffle, vanilla bean, salted caramel, or earl grey chocolate chip. Each flavor will have you dipping your spoon in again and again for a second and third helping.

Or if you have a hankering for something savory, Mix has breads, sandwiches and pastries. Additionally, satisfy your sweet tooth even more with their cookies, desserts and cakes. Because nothing embodies summer more than a slice of perfectly baked strawberry shortcake or lemon meringue tart.

A History of Delicious Treats

Mix is more than a bakery — it’s where the community gathers to indulge their palates and nourish their souls with artisan foods and treats. It has the sophisticated vibe of a French cafe, but all the charm and heart of a small town. It’s easy to see — and taste — the attention to detail their bakers put into everything they do.

Additionally, the bakers are happy to answer your questions! Ever wonder how things work in a bakery? They’ll explain the operations and let you in on how it’s done. 

Mix is open every day from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Sunday, and until 9:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. With treats for every occasion, everyone will find a new favorite once they step through Mix’s doors.
