St. John Scoops is the island's one and only place for homemade ices and creams. We make everything in-house and fresh every day! This means that our flavors are constantly changing, so what you see on the menu one day can be completely different the next day! We offer local fruit flavors like passion fruit, mango, and guava, along with old-time staples like strawberry and vanilla. We mix it up a bit by throwing in some local honey and lavender, or some St. John Brewer's Root Beer (yes, as an ice cream)! Don't worry, we also make some amazing chocolate, cookies & cream, and pistachio among the many other flavors on the rotation. Did we mention that we have something for just the big kids, too? That's right, rum raisin with real rum, painkiller ice cream, champagne sorbet, and the list does go on! When you walk by, you're sure to smell those fresh waffle cones being made...Nothing like a fresh scoop on a fresh cone, that's for sure! We are excited to offer vegan, superfood smoothies made with whole fresh frozen fruits (NO ICE) and an array of amazingly healthy additions to keep minds and bodies happy! Add some hemp or plant protein to make it a complete meal, and you won't feel so bad about all the bars you hit the night before. Virgin Island Coffee Roasters' Fair Trade Organic Sumatran Blend is served hot all day long for those in need of that caffeine buzz. We have lots of options for dairy-free and gluten-free guests, including sorbets and our yummy Slush Puppies.

Best ice cream on the island

If you're anywhere near Mongoose Junction, you are drawn to this counter by the scent of vanilla that permeates the air. Our kids found it on our second day on the island and fell in love so we were back MANY times! Note: They have a "club" card, which makes your 10th item free, but that must be a... read more

This stand has many flavors of ice cream. The waffle cones are made onsite. This was a nice treat on a warm evening.

We love ice cream, especially after dinner. The smell of the freshly made waffle cones will lure you over here. And that is when reality overcomes your lofty expectations. The ice cream is ok- maybe even good - but not worth the frustration. We went at 8pm and when asked for hot fudge the guy said he forgot to turn... More

We went out of our way (figure of speech) to try this ice cream based on the reviews. The homemade waffle cones and ice cream were so good!! Fun stop!

The ice creams I tried were all amazing and delicious (chocolate, cookies'n'cream, mint/grasshopper, and coconut). The mint "grasshopper" was probably the best mint I've ever tasted. They make their own waffle cones right on the spot and you can smell the toasting goodness as you approach the little stand. My one complaint: my husband is Type 1 Diabetic and would... More

My wife and I stopped in for a scoop of ice cream while shopping. The first challenge was prying the girl away from her newspaper. It took a loud"excuse me" to get her attention. Not a smile-barely a word from her as we ordered. Tremendously unfriendly, and mind you I'm not hard to please. The ice cream was good and... More

This place was fabulous!! Stopped for a snack and a drink, loved them both. The homemade honey lavender ice cream was amazing and the fresh brewed iced green tea was equally excellent. If I lived nearby I would be there every day! Reasonable prices for the area; the tea was $3 and a decent-sized ice cream was $5.

The ice cream was great, the workers...not so much! We went twice. The first night, we asked the man working what his favorite was. His response? "I don't really like sweet stuff." We all got fresh waffle cones. The salted caramel ice cream was awesome. The second night, there was a girl working. She said they were "out" of waffle... More

I did not eat there. But, the wife and daughter did. They loved it. The portions were huge. It has a great location coming and going to the beaches. Just whip in and grab a scoop.
