Fairfax Scoop makes its ice cream from organic ingredients. It is the creamiest ice cream I have ever had. In addition to the usual flavors they create new ones which are delicious! My favorites are the coffee, the chocolate swirl, love parade and coconut.

High quality, fresh, organic ice cream and amazing flavors! Scoop's salted caramel is out of this world, the vanilla honey lavender is exquisite and seasonal specials like eggnog, chai, fresh local berry flavors in summer...right in downtown Fairfax

This is the original homemade, organic ice cream shop. Can't go through Fairfax without trying a few flavours.

I totally agree with those who say that it's the best ice cream in Marin! Try the mud pie & salted caramel... and the waffle cones are also very tasty!

This icecream shop does not have a massive range of flavours, but what it does have is top quality. A cone from here is the perfect way to finish off your visit to Fairfax. By popular acclaim, the salted caramel was voted best on the day.

Loved the flavors and taste! Big scoops and very generous portions coma ore to other icecream shops in Marin. Definitely suggest trying the lavender! We can't wait to go back.

I LOVE this ice cream and have been enjoying their delicious flavors for many years. There is always a line, but it is more than worth it. Plus there are interesting photos to enjoy while waiting in line. My favorite flavor is the Honey Vanilla Lavender!
