If you like ice cream this is the place to go to. Every type of ice cream that you can imagine. The décor is very 1950ish and very clean. The waitress is very friendly and service is very quick too. Lots of parking is available.

Love the retro feel of this place and the ice cream isn't bad, either. We had hot fudge sundaes and the banana split we saw was perfectly built and big!

I'm surprised Harlingen hasn't discovered this great little place. The banana splits are excellent, reminding us older Harlingen natives of Hygeia in its prime. The "Dream" banana splits allow you to choose three scoops from about 30 flavors of Blue Bell ice cream. Yummy! The...More

The Scoop retains the charm of the original Hygiea Dairy Bar. Our group had banana splits and a sundae. All tasted fresh and delicious.
