Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Area for kids to play, homemade ice cream flavors to die for and coffee to knock off your socks - need I say more?

“Family friendly”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

The Hop's ice cream is home-made and you can tell. Better yet they are very family friendly with a kids area in the shop and weekly activities for kids. Check them out!

“delicious ice cream”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

I usually go to The Hop in West Asheville. They have a back patio where you can enjoy your ice cream. They rotate flavors and usually have a pretty yummy selection, including vegan choices. Very kid friendly!

“Great Asheville Tradition”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

The Hop is an Asheville institution. We visited the West Asheville Hop on a Sat. evening about 9:30 pm. The service was great and friendly. The lady behind the counter give us tastes of ice cream to help us decide. For 4 of us, it was $20 which I consider a bargain especially since I got the Brownie Delight - delicious! All of us enjoyed our ice cream. The restroom was nicely maintained.
