Ice cream

Was a small place with about 10 flavors of real ice cream as well as hotdogs and chili and drinks, walk up to window and order and take out or eat at a small table. A little expensive but got a discount for first time customer.

I wont go here again. Stick with Swiss Miss- I had a peek inside Scoop's serving area and it was filthy. Ice cream was just ok. Trash and mess in seating area. Wont come back.

I stopped here with my friend after someone gave us a 50 cents off coupon. I ordered a chocolate soft serve in a cone. It wasn't very chocolatey but the cone itself was nice and crisp and fresh. My friend had a butter pecan cone and she didn't care for her ice cream at all. The whole area at Scoops... More

Good if not exceptional ice-cream. Scoops suffers for the moment due to damage caused by a fire in a neighbouring building. The lower floor was more like a building site than an ice cream parlour and the approach was less than tidy: difficult but perhaps more could be done to clear the place up a little. Staff seemed a little... More

There are two Scoops, sort of. A basement entry and a street level entry. They have a wide selection, and some of these are 'home-style flavours'! They will serve in a standard come, a waffle cone, or a cup/tub. The hotter it is, the more you should consider a cup/tub, unless you are a 'fast licker'! Their prices are a... More

This ice cream shop probably does pretty good business in the summer, because it's well-signed and activates the taste buds. But I visited on a Tuesday in mid-September and the exterior was kind of junky - empty buckets, puddles, hoses laying around - and the staff rather inattentive. Ice cream was just average. There are several more establishments in town... More

Holy cow this stuff is good! It's a wonderful ice cream shoppe, that I hit up every time I'm in town. My students love it! They rave about for weeks after our trip every year!

The ice cream was good but $20 bucks for 5 scoops good, IDK. The service was horrible and the exterior of the store front was covered in dirty dusty spider webs full of dead bugs and debris.
