“Well worth the trip!”
Review of Scoop du Jour

Scoop du Jour
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in East Hampton
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 April 2012

After seeing the Giada Hampton's episode, I made a mental note to visit Scoop at the next available oppurtunity. I love to sample ice cream from the authentic "mom and pop" stores, and my chinchilla Hans enjoys homemade donuts (with Tab, not easy to find). So... homemade donuts AND ice cream together made the journey a no-brainer! A business oppurtunity arose in that neck of the woods and Hans and I jumped into the wagon and headed out. Long story short... the ice cream and donuts were sublime!!! I had a waffle cone (made from authentic waffle batter, not that fake nonsense) with a very creamy scoop of Chocolate and a scoop of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough that had just the right amount of chips and dough in each delectable dollup. Hans wolfed down his donut and ran in circles (outside, they were very strict about no chinchillas inside. Understandable), which is how he displays joy. We brought our own Tab. The friendly girl even supplied us with and empty cup because Hans no longer drinks out of cans (VERY long story). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my business takes me back to East Hampton on a regular basis so I can regularly taste the goodness that is Scoop du Jour (French for scoop of the day. Nice.)

...and I lived in East Hampton for 2 years! So I went more than once!
Scoop du Jour is the place where you go at lunch time, looking for a sandwich and finding greasy grilled cheese sandwiches, quesadillas and eggs with bacon on rye...
The people behind the counter are...not very clean, not to say disgusting.
The hygiene in Scoop is just non existent (hair is dirty, outfits as well, will not get into the nails of the girls preparing food...etc...)
And everybody goes for ice cream (well, there really is no other place in town!), but it is artificial.
Avoid milkshakes if possible.
The only pro: they have amazing donuts (plain)

I was disappointed with your review of our shop. We hold our employees to the highest personal hygiene standards, if you found anything improper you could have asked to speak to me or our General Mgr. in my absence. Also please note that while in food most things are a matter of personal taste and everyone is entitled to their opinion, the FACTS apply to all of us.
The Fact is our ice cream and yogurts are 100% natural and of the highest quality.
Please feel free to contact me at anytime if you are unhappy with anything.
Thank You.

You can smell the waffle cones for miles. Scoop du Jour is the best ice cream in town with tons of flavors and a great location. Love that it isn't a Ben and Jerry's chain and one of the best family owned businesses that still exists in town.
