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.

No one turns down ice cream in our group. I chose the coconut Mmmmm!!!! We asked if they ever carried pina colada sorbet or bushwacker. He said he’s gotten requests for bushwacker so maybe in the future. He left the little store and came back w pina colada! But said it wouldn’t be ready to serve for 24 hrs. No... More

My family of 9 enjoyed the ice cream at St John Scoops a lot. We smelled the waffle cones from our parking spots next to Mongoose Junction after returning from an evening sunset sail. The smell got us and the alcoholic and non-alcoholic ice cream won us over. We had great service and were lucky enough to find the small... More

Excellent ice cream . A generous serving for $5 per cup . Waffle cones $2 extra and looked very good. If you want ice cream on St Johns...this is THE place. Limited outdoor seating though.

The service was great. It's cash only. The ice cream comes in alcoholic and non-alcoholic flavors. The waffle cones are delicious and freshly made. The ice cream is all natural and they take pride in simple ingredients.

This is one of the only places to get ice cream on St. John. It also happens to be wonderful ice cream. Walking up to scoops there is a wonderful aroma of the fresh cones they make themselves on site. This is a great place to get a refreshing treat.

We have enjoyed an ice cream cone here in the past, and always enjoyed the experience. NOT this time. As in the past, the ice cream in a waffle cone was great. However, the service was terrible. The woman that served us was either constantly talking to herself or talking to someone else via a Bluetooth device. We stood at... More

Ice cream and alcohol... this is what makes paradise such a great place to live. Give me rum and ice cream any day. I had the salted caramel with a shot of rum. Made my day.

This is truly one of the world's best ice cream stores. Their flavors are always incredibly creative and delicious consisting of only the very finest ingredients with a touch of liquor or liqueur if you prefer. Had a Toasted Coconut ice cream with hot fudge and loved every bite. But then my good friend ordered a Blueberry Pomegranate and what... More

The homemade ice cream is amazing!! Some of the best I've ever had. Service... not so much. No personality, not very helpful. Other than less than average service, everything is was great- hope this little ice cream shop makes it in STJ!
