Hard to find little place, but the ice cream was very well made and they had interesting flavors like cherry chunk and nutella with oreos. Open late, friendly service.

We had dinner in Lenox and we're not ready to go back to hotel. Unfortunately, everything in Lenox seems to close at 5:30 or 6pm. We had ice cream/sherbert at scoops just before it closed at 7pm.. It was very good .

We enjoyed a stop here after visiting Herman Melville's house. It was tricky for us to find, but we were rewarded with delicious treats which we enjoyed at nearby Lilac Park.

If you like ice cream you HAVE to go here! They make their own ice cream, “Annie’s,” and it’s great. We had Coconut Chunk, Espresso Oreo, chocolate chip and Boardwalk Crunch. All were creamy and yummy. We especially loved the Coconut Chunk. Hope we can...More

We really really loved this store! As other reviews have said, bring cash, because it will save you money. There’s ample seating and free WiFi. I personally loved the blue lemon - it’s something you wouldn’t be able to get at any average store.

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. Closed for winter Nov-March.
