The almond praline. I need not say anymore. We were in GS for 3nights and 4 days. Yes everynight we had the cone with 4 scoops of almond praline ice cream. I don't care that we spent roughly 7$ on a cone. Totally worth it!!!

This was the only ice cream shop we found open this time of the year, and we were not disappointed. Edy's ice cream by the scoop with a large variety of toppings. The menu is large but not overwhelming. Soft serve is also available in a couple of flavors. A few tables are available inside this small ice cream shop.... More

Good service and ice cream was tasty. This was the first ice cream place we have went to in AL so I don't really how anything to compare it to. If you go try the Fizz.

We visited twice during our vacation. The location is good - just a few blocks from the beach. Parking is tough when it's busy - you almost have to wait for someone to leave and there can be a line of people out the door! The shop is cute and the staff was friendly. It's Edy's ice cream and there... More

Sorry to diss on Matt's but you can get way more for your money here as opposed to the "homemade" stuff that wasn't that great at Matt's. Busy but workers were friendly and patient with our indecisive girls. Great spot to go after the beach!

Spent a week in Foley, went to Scoop's twice. Should have gone more! Small, but wide variety of ice cream and sherbet. Wonder why ice cream tastes better on a hot day or evening....me too. Young staff, but efficient. Can east in a/c inside or outside. Nice tables outside and clean. Parking can be difficult because Scoop's draws a crowd.... More

Cute, a few blocks off the beach, tons of outside seating to enjoy the fresh air. Your typical ice cream place but definitely worth the visit. Within walking distance of a few restaurants and souvenir shops as well.

Cute little ice cream shop with a nice variety to pick from. Tasty ice cream and Coke products. I had a chocolate marshmallow sundae and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place.

It's Edy's ice cream so nothing special but the portions are generous and there are plenty of flavors to choose from.

Good ice cream, good prices. Only complaint, which is minor, is the menu is on a chalk board and a little hard to tell options.
