Delicious home made ice cream in many flavors including cookie dough and salted caramel which are their favorites. Of course it is pricey but it is an island.

Visited St John Scoops multiple times while on island to volunteer in rebuilding efforts. Loved the daily choices of dairy free and vegan homemade ice creams! Super friendly local staff from the owner to the local teens working there. The place was always busy, making...More

My wife and I stopped here after hiking the Lind Point Trail to Honeymoon Beach and back. Being a typical early March day on St John, we were hot at the end of our hike. What better to have on a warm day than ice...More

The ice cream here is less than mediocre, and the serving sizes are small. Definitely not recommended.

My husband could not stop talking about how delicious the homemade butter pecan ice cream in the waffle cone was our entire trip! Great little stop after a day at the beach or shopping in Mongoose Junction.

This is a great summer treat - island style. They put booze in your ice cream. The famous painkillers turned into lucious ice cream - awesome. They have flavors for all palettes - with or without alcohol. Come and enjoy. You'll smell the delicious waffle...More

St. John Scoops is by far the best ice cream on St. John and maybe the best in all the Virgin Islands. Being only twelve years old, ice cream is my life. The ice cream here was maybe some of the best I've had, especially...More

This is the perfect stop on your way back from the beach. Homemade ice cream in a homemade waffle cone or a cup. Gluten free people are accommodated (my wife). We visited twice. I liked the coconut and the chai latte flavors.

Scoops is in Mongoose Junction, located on the opposite side of Cruz Bay, from the ferry dock. It is about a 5 to 10 minute walk.

St. John Scoops is the island's one and only place for homemade ices and creams. We make everything in-house and fresh every day! This means that our flavors are constantly changing, so what you see on the menu one day can be completely different the next day! We offer local fruit flavors like passion fruit, mango, and guava, along with old-time staples like strawberry and vanilla. We mix it up a bit by throwing in some local honey and lavender, or some St. John Brewer's Root Beer (yes, as an ice cream)! Don't worry, we also make some amazing chocolate, cookies & cream, and pistachio among the many other flavors on the rotation. Did we mention that we have something for just the big kids, too? That's right, rum raisin with real rum, painkiller ice cream, champagne sorbet, and the list does go on! When you walk by, you're sure to smell those fresh waffle cones being made...Nothing like a fresh scoop on a fresh cone, that's for sure! We are excited to offer vegan, superfood smoothies made with whole fresh frozen fruits (NO ICE) and an array of amazingly healthy additions to keep minds and bodies happy! Add some hemp or plant protein to make it a complete meal, and you won't feel so bad about all the bars you hit the night before. Virgin Island Coffee Roasters' Fair Trade Organic Sumatran Blend is served hot all day long for those in need of that caffeine buzz. We have lots of options for dairy-free and gluten-free guests, including sorbets and our yummy Slush Puppies.
