Ice cream simply can't get any better! From the local/organic ingredients they use to the creative flavors, Scoop will never disappoint.

I love this this place and you can try every flavor made with local fruits. The ice cream is made fresh on site. It is very cute as well. The building is very nice to.

One of the major treats of being in Arcata is being able to visit Arcata Scoop, spend time in this attractive space and enjoy a wide selection of really delicious organic ice cream. Yummm!

After a frustrating night of trying to find a decent restaurant in this town, we wandered into Arcata Scoop and were greeted by happy friendly folks behind the counter serving some of the best ice cream anywhere. Totally saved the night.

This in house made ice cream was excellent. There was a line out the door. Inside there is fun seating in a giraffe glider. I'd be here frequently if I lived in this town.

There's not a ton of seating but who cares? More fun to walk around with ice cream. Not far from the plaza and the theater, this is a staple of our Arcata daytime culture.

Very good and original ice cream. Everyone loves it. Although I am not the biggest fan, it seems like lots of other people are.
