Not only are the flavors really,really good but the hours are great (open until 10pm or 10:30). The fruit flavors taste so fresh I have never had ice cream taste so good. I love that they use local organic ingredients, but the best part: split scoops!! I don't have to decide on just one flavor: i can get two small... More

I know it seems hard to believe but it is true. I was in Burlington Vt when Ben and Jerry's started. It was a far cry from the paltry mass produced sub-cream of the present. I know great ice cream and the scoop leaves all others on its wake. The highest quality ingredients show in the end product. No milkshakes... More

Though not cheap, this cute parlor has a delicious array of homemade flavors of ice creams. The place itself is small but decorated for families of all ages and sizes. There's a carousel horse 'booth' inside and an area outside with a partially-submerged creek and greenery.

Superb quality and surprising favors that are changed every day. The "Ice Cream Specialist", Garreth Nada, is constantly introducing new and exciting flavors with very highest quality ingredients. Go, enjoy, become addicted ... I Scream THE SCOOP!

I took my grandchildren to Scoops for ice cream cones. The ice cream tastes homemade and is really delicious. They use organic ingredients too. The restaurant has cute furniture -- a carousel rabbit, "scooter booth", giant wooden bugs for chairs, and kids ice cream parlor. The prices were pretty high, but for a treat it was OK. The kids loved... More

I bought an ice cream maker right before Arcata Scoop opened that the damn thing is still in the box. Flavors change rapidly and there's always something new. There's a flavor there for everyone!

We decided to get ice cream after dinner and found this shop on TripAdvisor. The flavors were interesting but my husband found the creamsicle to be grainy and pricey. It was obvious that this is the one place that most people go because there aren't any more choices available. We probably should have saved our money and bought ice cream... More

This restaurant is a nice place to stop if you're in the mood for ice cream in Arcata. They have some unique flavors that you are free to try prior to purchase. However, don't expect anything that you'll find in a large city. This is a great stop for Arcata, but don't expect anything to knock your socks off to... More
