Low fat

I love ice cream but don't like the calories or the fat content. I enjoy going to the Scoop because I can get a no fat soft serve twist and not tell that I'm not eating the real thing. The only thing I don't like are the lines. I guess when you've got a good product you've got to expect... read more

Just found this little ice cream gem. Homemade, organic and absolutely delicious!! Blueberry-ginger a favorite, coffee terrific, and chocolate/cherry very good, just wish they had used real cherries, and don't think they did which was a little surprising. But the ice cream is creamy and delicious.

Ice cream was outstanding. According to my friend the pistachio was world class. Comfortable seating both inside or on the outside deck. Open late until 11 pm. Enjoy!

Delicious ice cream with an excellent assortment of flavors. There were choices for everyone in our group. The service was pleasant, and it was a great to take a break from the heat.

What's not to love - fresh ice cream in delicious, imaginative flavors - my favorite is raspberry chip but almost every flavor I have tried has been equally good. The only reason this is not a 5 star shop is because sometimes the young people who are helping you don't place customer service as a high priority.

I recommend that you ask for samples because they are so many great flavors it is hard to pick just one. The chocolate sea salt was exceptional as were all the others we tried. I am sure you will want to visit them more than once. One of the best ice creams I have ever had.

Definitely try the key lime ice cream. Fantastic! Also, check out the door handle as you walk in. They have a nice porch to sit and enjoy the calories.

I'm not a huge ice cream fan, but this place is good. They make their own flavors on-site, and they change every couple of days. We didn't try the sorbet or fat-free froyo, but they have it too. I had something called Carmel Moose (vanilla ice cream with carmel ribbon and chocolate covered carmel cups....YUM), hubby had Black Rasberry. We... More

Hubby had the Cookie Monster, which is blue a strange color for food but very good. I had the Mexicali chocolate, wow, that has a kick...loved every bite.
