Description: 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.

We got ice cream and smoothies here four of the five nights we were in St John. Very fresh, natural ingredients and very clean shop! Highly recommend it!

“Awesome flavors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

This ice cream shop rocks! They have the best flavors (St. John Brewery root beer FTW!!!) and the ice cream is just perfect for those hot carribbean days. I wish I remembered the manager's name because he is such a friendly guy. We ended up standing around chatting with him for about 20 minutes. Super nice. Highly recommend for anyone with a sweet tooth.

“Service/Selection Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

We went to this place twice during our visit. The first time was okay, although they were "sold out" of most flavors. The second time they had even less selection and only had "one scoop" of the flavor I wanted. Since there wasn't enough for the two scoops that you get for $5, the lady asked I wanted something else. I decided on a second flavor and she charged me additional for getting a second flavor, even though I had no choice. She was extremely rude about it too. The ice cream was okay, but the workers were rude BOTH times I was there. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere!!

The perfect end to a hot day at the beach! Or after dinner or lunch or breakfast! Tried the berry and was surprised at the bold flavor.
