Visited scoops every day after the beach for a pick me up, and some much needed sugar. Delighted to see an expanded menu ( slushees, sorbet popsicles, and new flavors on the regular menu) but being dairy free, I only wish coconut sorbet was an...More

This is the same owner as the old "I Scream" near the Beach Bar. Nothing wrong with the old place, but this location and the ice cream is now top notch. SO many flavors, including bushwhacker, pain killer and other adult flavors, not to mention...More

This has actually been the best ice cream I've ever had. It might just be the flavor, but it was amazing. I got the Honey Lavender icecream and it was seriously to die for!

They wouldn't let us try anything before picking. I didn't end up loving the cookies and cream as I'd hoped so I was very disappointed. The waffle cone was good, probably wouldn't go back since there are so many other options around.

The ice cream is delicious! I had the chocolate coconut— yum! They don’t offer samples though, which is kind of a bummer. They had some exotic flavors that I was curious to try (like papaya and mango), but didn’t want to commit $5.50 to without...More

Stopped here on the way back to our villa from the beach. It's a popular spot with homemade ice cream in Mongoose Junction, St. John's version of a mall. We all agreed that the ice cream was some of our favorite ever.

Worth a trip on a hot afternoon or evening! Each flavor was rich and creamy. Waffle cones were fresh and crunchy. Highly recommend!

Although there are many places to get ice cream on the island - this one is the BEST! Homemade waffle cones and the owner is Awesome.

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

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.
