Respond to Review of Scoops - Melrose
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: We have been coming to Scoops for years. It's right next to the LA City College and the place is simple with a few tables (love the spoon mobile hanging from the ceiling). There are always several vegan options to choose from. All the flavor combinations are unique and as they constantly change, there's too many to list, but Oreos with something else (banana, chocolate or maple for example) are a common theme as are flavors with alcohol or chocolate. The sorbets often have tropical fruits with more than one flavor mixed together. I love lychee and passionfruit ones. The size of the scoops are generous for a great price. And yes, if you bring back your plastic cup, you will get a discount (the small scoop becomes $2). In fact, our cups are so old with a different style that we recently got an even better discount for being long term customers. :-) They also make soy milk shakes which are delicious. And ice cream cakes too! We had a pumpkin one for the holidays. And not to leave out the fact that you can also buy it by the gallon (special order). Dirk got some for his work's monthly birthday celebration and no one knew the difference! The vegan ice cream is so awesome. One of Dirk's favorite foods is ice cream, so we are here often and all the employees, including the owner, have been so nice. And don't forget to eat at Pure Luck across the street too!
