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.

Great afternoon stop

I have a sweet tooth and it's hard to smell the freshly-baked waffle cones and pass by without stopping. The ice cream is always delicious!

My husband and I stopped by here after doing some shopping. The ice cream flavors were interesting and tasty. Good location in Mongoose Junction. The reason I did not give them 4 stars is this: I believe the owner may have been there, doing some stocking of items. Thought she was a bit snippy toward the employees and didn't acknowledge...

Amazing homemade ice cream. Big selection. Great waffle cones, my brother liked them and he doesn't like waffle cones. Salted Caramel was great. Alcohol ice cream too (whihc we didn't try). Great location with plenty of parking. Loved it.

Yum! This is a great stop for when you're heading back into Cruz Bay after a day on one of the north shore beaches. It's located in Mongoose Junction. Prices are very reasonable -- only take cash, so have small enough bills ready!

Great ice cream - must stop if you are in the area. We stopped here while on a tour of the island. It's in the Mongoose Junction shopping area which is a quaint area with shops, bars and restaurants. The shopping was nice and the ice cream very tasty!

Once one acknowledges that this is St. John -- making food expensive and ingredients difficult to acquire -- this ice cream is plenty delicious and served at a fair price. Wide selection of flavors. I agree with other reviewers that there is an icy texture to it, but found it refreshing after a hot day on the beach. If you... More

Went here way too many times, but basically anytime we were driving to or from Cruz Bay we'd stop in for a treat. Great little low key spot for a delicious bite.

This place is normally crowded. I had the salted caramel and threw it away after a few bites. The ice cream had almost no flavor. Others in or group had the chipped raspberry and said it was OK. Another had the cookies and cream and liked it. I was not impressed with my first visit but may try another flavor... More

We are regulars here and love everything on the menu especially the alcoholic flavors that pack a punch and are well worth the $6 for a cup. $5 for the non-alcoholic cup. The freshly made cones smell delicious and make for some lovely aromatherapy around Mongoose Junction.

Made it a habit to visit St John Scoops each evening. I would not recommend the S mores Ice cream but by our last stop, it was removed from the menu (so maybe someone else felt the same way). Everything else was wonderful. The guy working there was so pleasant. There was a group of young (intoxicated!) boys in front... More
