There just isn't much that can go wrong with ice cream. The staff was friendly and the ice cream tasty.

They have several different flavors of ice cream, sorbetto and gelatos. The shop does have access to outdoor seating.

This little mom-&-pop place was quite charming. They make all their own ice cream, and the flavors we tried were delicious. The owners were friendly and helpful in serving us. Make this your must-stop dessert place in Salida.

Have not been in Scoop for quite some time because every time I walk by there is a sign in the window covered with bugs. If they are in the window I assume they are everywhere.

Not impressed with he ice cream, service, or store, but still a treat for the kids on a hot day. The patio that’s being added out front will be a nice addition.

Went to get ice cream for the family and had a few 4 and 5 year olds with us. When ordering a few kids come we were almost harrassed about how old the kids were. Ice cream was okay but service ruined it.

We enjoyed our ice cream and the service. We stopped in last night about 20 minutes before they were closing and the two guys working still served us with a smile. We would go again when in the area.
