I went for the first time to cools scoops this year. I could not believe the amount of memorabilia they have displayed there. Every room had something to remind me of my child hood. Their ice cream was very good and the service was fast and friendly. They have Cadillac car booths and the old fashion ice cream shop areas... More

Even though summer was unofficially over Labor Day weekend, we lucked out and got a couple of nice sundaes, before we drove back home. I got a classic hot fudge sundae with wet walnuts, and my son got... More

We have been going to Wildwood for 12 years and never went here before. We went this year and just could not get enough! The store and it's "stuff" is just so cool. You could just look at everything for hours.

Stopping at Cool Scoops is a tradition every time we are in North Wildwood. We have been going to Scoops ever since it has opened. My daughter insists on it. The atmosphere is such a blast from the past with all of the retro decor. Their Java Chip ice cream is my "go-to" flavor but at my most recent visit... More

A wildwood MUST! Scoops is not just fantastic ice cream but an experience. I could spend hours just looking at all the memorabilia, not to mention the retro candy. My kids fondly refer to the waitress statue behind the counter as the "frozen lady"...they can't wait to see her year-after-year. A must see...you won't be disappointed!
