Scoops, Los Angeles


Brown bread, black sesame ginger, Thai ice tea, Guinness chocolate, mascarpone oreo, banana marsala wine, pistachio jasmine, grapefruit reisling….if these ice cream flavors haven’t already enticed you head over to Scoops, we don’t know what you’re waiting for!!

There are a variety of creamy ice cream, fruity sherberts, as well as soy and vegan based iced creams. The texture of the ice cream is not the richest or creamiest we’ve ever had, but the flavors are just outstanding. There’s a white board in the corner for you to suggest flavor combinations–go ahead, post your wildest flavor combinations and it might just be the next flavor at Scoops. You often see Tai Kim, owner and mastermind, around the shop with an apron talking to customers. A “single” scoop will run you $2.75 but that gets you two scoops of up to two flavors. Only 1.75 for refills. There’s free toppings, although we never partake–hate to mess up his ingenious flavor creations! Just don’t fall in love with a flavor because you may not find it again the next time around as flavors change frequently.

There’s only a handful of small tables and a single love seat. The decor is minimalist with rotating hipster art on the walls. Best seating is outside patio on a summer day. Parking can be tricky, but you can use the metered parking at LA community college right next door. There’s always an adventure of flavors waiting at Scoops.

    Cool beans! I've been meaning to check out Scoops ever since I heard about the krazy flavors on offer. The Thai iced tea is sounding mighty fine.

    Wow, I've never heard of Scoops before (where have I been?!). The flavors sound amazing… nothing like Baskin Robbins! I'll have to try it sometime.

    Gastronomer and Krissy: You guys gotta check it out. It's just north of Koreatown so makes for a great night of Korean food followed by Scoops!

    This is one of my favorite place to be in Los Angeles, esp after dinner either in K Town or Thai Town. I love how Tai changes flavors daily with the exception of Brown Bread, of course.
