“Delicious handmade ice cream/sorbet.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Took my twins here and ordered 2 kids' cones. You know what happens next...1 scoop drops to the floor after one lick. The employee proceeds to ask a 3-year old if he wants another scoop. Of course he says..so sweet of the employee. Much appreciated, but more importantly, the ice cream (honey lavender vanilla) is fantastic. Make a day of it.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

This is the most incredible ice cream you will ever have. It is a tiny little store in Fairfax, you'll know it by the long line leading out of its door and around the block. Always worth the wait though. They have a wonderful home town atmosphere with pictures up on the walls and fliers.

“Best Ice Cream in Marin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This place uses fresh, organic ingredients and is a town favorite. It's always a treat to walk downtown to see what new flavors are at the scoop

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I hesitate to review the Fairfax Scoop, only because it is so good and on a hot day the line runs out the door. Honey Lavender Vanilla is their most popular creation but everything is good. Strawberry is always filled with chucks of fresh strawberries. Their Salted Caramel is also great. It's a tiny shop with a few tables and chairs. As a Fairfax resident for 25 years, I consider the Fairfax Scoop as one of Fairfax's gems.
