The atmosphere is very inviting! You might have to wait in line, but it is well worth the wait. I highly recommend trying this ice cream!

It'll be a long line, but the lavender vanilla on the waffle cone is worth the wait. Better lick fast 'cuz it's so creamy, it melts quickly. Wished they would expand to another larger spot, but it might lose the charm of waiting in a snake line until you reach the tubs of ice cream to choose from.

Scoop has the best icecream I've had in a while. It is a very cute shop but the lines are always long when I've gone. They often have new flavors and care about the community because it is locally owned. Raspberry Sorbet is my favorite flavor and I would recommend you try it.

We were recommended so I put up with waiting in line. I'm glad we did. Quite excellent ice cream. Try the waffle cones, I'm sure your worth it!

This is a locally owned ice cream shop with local ingredients and worth the indulgence if you are going to eat ice cream. Lines can get long so just be prepared or go early. Can also buy quantities to go.

Fairfax Scoop is small batch handmade ice cream and waffle cones and cups. Possibly the best ice cream on the planet try the lavender honey vanilla mmmm good! Amazing eclectic flavors always a line in front but worth the wait!

Standard flavors of ice cream, all good but nothing so unusual that you should drive out of your way to come here

I'm here with my brother and his wife and they tell me Fairfax Scoop makes the best ice cream. I'm truly impressed. I got chocolate chips and vanilla flavor. I'd do it again if I come this way!

Could be in the whole of the Bay Area. Sooooooo creamy and yummy! Lots of different flavors to choose from. And they rotate frequently. Very Fairfax. Very awesome. Worth waiting in line for.

This ice cream is far superior to any other brands. I once favored Haagen Daz, Three Twins, Ben & Jerry. They are not even in the same league. The flavors of The Scoop, the texture, richness, consistency is above any other brand. Their Lavendar Vanilla is to die for! On warm summer days there is usually a line, but well... More
