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.

Little storefront with great ice cream in fresh waffle cones, slushies, and proteinfiber shakes. Something for everyone. We went to Scoops at Mongoose Junctions at least four times. The ice cream flavors varied (fruit flavors as well as more typical flavors). Only problem is eating it before it melted in the tropical heat and maybe they should think about having two people working in the afternoon, because there was always a line.

During a recent vacation in the islands my wife, baby, and niece took several trips to St John. This was the perfect place to stop on the way to the north shore beaches after hopping off the ferry. The kale smoothies are really really good and a nice light way to get the day going. They're made with fresh fruits and vegetables, and used a high quality vegan protein add upon request. The consistency was thick, fresh, and full of flavor! We also stopped later in the day for ice cream, which was good, but not the best we had on the islands. Would definitely recommend checking them out!

They make their ice cream from scratch which I really appreciate. I had the 2 scoops for $5. Chose 1 scoop of coconut and 1 scoop of chocolate, both great! Would go back again.

Stopped in for a post-snorkel ice cream treat today with my family. Delicious ice cream with creative flavors. Can smell the waffle cones baking throughout Mongoose Junction. Was a bit shocked to have to hand over $21 for three cones...but perhaps that is par for the course in St. John.

However, upon taking the second bite of my cone, it broke down the side, almost to the bottom. When we asked for a replacement cone, we were literally told "tough luck". She did not even offer a bowl or cup to help deal with the messy, leaking cone that would soon be unable to contain my melting ice cream.

In general, the counter person was rude, acted inconvenienced by our presence, and ruined an otherwise pleasant outing for my family. Despite the good ice cream, we won't be back.

Fresh waffle cones made before your eyes - yummy ice cream, it all totals up to a very tasty experience! A tad expensive, but what isn't on St. John!? I highly recommend this treat at least once during your stay!
