We've been twice so far this trip. I've ordered the orange pineapple sorbet and the toasted coconut ice cream and both were great. It's a great after dinner spot at Mongoose Junction.

When the server didn't seem thrilled about his own product, I should have known better. As an ice cream connoisseur, Scoops misses the dip. The waffle cone was fresh but the ice crystallized ice cream was not. In addition, both flavors, coconut and sea salt...More

Love Love Love St. John Scoops! The flavors change all the time and they are delicious! Some interesting flavors like Honey Lavender and even adult flavors that have alcohol in them. Their homemade waffle cones are a must!

My wife and 5 of our kids visited Scoops during our visit to St John for an after snorkeling treat. The ice cream was very good. I enjoyed the coconut. My wife liked salted caramel. The kids all enjoyed their choices and seeing "Jack" the...More

This is my three sons (and my husband's!) favorite stop to make in Cruz Bay - it's a really fun way for us to finish off our day. They haven't tried an ice cream flavor there that they didn't like and they rotate flavors every...More

Scoops is the perfect stop after a day at the beach. Both flavors we had were great, and I'm sad we didn't get to stop there more than once.

We were disappointed by the quality of ice cream and policy of not giving tastes before purchase. Ice cream was rather gritty in texture and also lacking in flavor. Waffle cones are made in house but from a mix (not homemade). Seems expensive for what...More

Just needed some great ice cream! Scoops delivered then we discovered they freshly made their own cones! So delicious and a great variety to choose from. We will definitely go back next trip. Very conveniently located in Mongoose Junction!

The ice cream flavors were great but the texture was gritty.ciy.. We expected smooth and creamy instead. Won't go back.

I'm an ice cream snob--it's hit and miss and Scoops. The coconut and chocolate banana are both so good you will eat them every day--We did! But normal flavors like strawberry, etc are disappointing. Step outside the box on flavors and you will be a...More

Scoops is in Mongoose Junction, located on the opposite side of Cruz Bay, from the ferry dock. It is about a 5 to 10 minute walk.

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.
