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

This place is the best ice cream in humboldt by far. The owner takes pride in making his ice cream with the finest quality ingredients. Made with strauss creamery products and local fruits you can't ask for anything more fresh. Depending on the time of year will determine the flavors that are available but the staple flavors are the lavender... More

This place is amazing! My husband had two scoops of raspberry swirl on the freshly made waffle cone and wouldn't stop raving about it. My daughter had the chocolate orange chip and it was yummy. Tasted like chocolate with grand marnier flavoring. I had the vanilla almond rose. It was truly the best ice cream I have ever had. Unfortunately... More

First of all the cones were not great at all in terms of both texture and flavour. It's not because they're unpleasant but they were not how they should be. Watermelon sorbet was weak in flavour and gelatinous in texture. Honey, vanilla and lave bed was almost great. We didn't get any honey flavour and the actual lavender flower bits... More
