Great choice of homemade flavors all of which can be a super yummy shake! You'll likely see lots of local kids hanging out here nursing a sweet tooth and taking advantage of the free wifi!

The Scoop is a small but very popular spot that serves delicious ice cream. The night we went my husband got his regular choice of chocolate (rich and good) and I got Cinnamon Apple Cider Doughnut which was also very good. Would recommend this to ice cream lovers.

Delicious home made ice cream in the center of Lenox. We ate there instead of going to dinner -- twice!

My life is a certified expert on chocolate ice cream. She has done "taste tests" half-way around the world. We visited The Scoop in Lenox after having dinner at Bistro Zinc and, my wife, allows that their chocolate ice cream is some of the most "definitely chocolate" ice cream she has ever enjoyed.

Apple cider donut ice cream. Bliss in a cone. What else need I say? Worth the price. Many unusual flavors. Was torn between this one and the girl scout cookie flavor. Happy with my choice.

Bet you won't be able to resist either. They will split the 'small' which is two big scoops into two flavors if, like me, you just cannot decide. We were 6 people so we tried 12 flavors. All delish, but maybe the Coconut was the supremely irresistible one. I wouldn't pass on the double chocolate either and...well, you get it:... More

The title says it all -- come here for the salted caramel ice cream -- or is it gelato? It was very rich so I am not sure what to call it but this flavor is a huge winner. Also tried the chocolate chip and was not as impressed but also good. It's hard to have "bad" ice cream but... More

Description
The Scoop sweets cafe is in the heart of Lenox and has been in its location on Church Street since 2011. A specialty ice cream and candy shop, we make our own ice cream on the premises called Blondie's Homemade. We also offer coffee drinks made with No. 6 Depot coffee and daily fresh baked goodies. Flavors rotate seasonally, but there is always sweet creamy deliciousness to appeal for every customer's sweet urge.
