Description: 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.

Painkiller ice cream! This place is awesome! Friendly staff and Great fresh made waffle cones too. I wish we had found this place sooner. We will be back. If you're on St. John you've got to stop by this place.

Had a great visit to Scoops last week (more than once, actually!). All of the staff took great care of us, and offered suggestions from their extensive list of choices. My favorite was the salted caramel! Enjoying it in a waffle cone would be my recommendation!

Since we were only in St. John for six days, we wanted to try different restaurants and attractions every day so we could get the most out of our experience. However, the ice cream here was so good that we had to go back on our last night. I tried to order the snickers the first day but they were... More

Very small batches, so fresh flavors every day. Some off-beat flavors as well as liquor containing flavors which can be served with a shot of booze as well. Good ice cream for young and old.

Name says it all. Who doesn't like berries, booze and ice cream? Wife had the strawberry and it was quite tasty.

$5 gets you 2 good size scoops of ice cream. And you can mix it up and pick two flavors. The offerings are always changing and I would recommend getting outside your usual flavors. The blueberry pomegranate took the top of my head off. So much flavor. We went at least four times during the week we were there. Oh... More

After having dinner we asked a local where to go for good ice cream. They recommended Scoops and it was great! I had the mint chocolate chip (called grasshopper) and it was the best I have ever had. The waffle cones were fresh and crisp. (Not a small feat on a hot and humid day). The rest of our group... More

We both got a $5 ice cream cup because the cones were $7. They don't offer tastes to see what you like. I didn't like that because the flavors are not your usual flavors. We ended up liking what we got, but the ice cream was not appreciably better than ice cream at other places in the States.

If you are in St. John's you must try this place. We found it on our way to walking to the Mongoose junction. I think it was the only Ice cream shop we found. The Waffles are so fresh and homemade , they kind of taste like gingerbread cookies. I am not a big fan of Oreo cookie ice cream... More
