It's so smooth and creamy you'd think it was great Italian gelato! This place should not be missed if you are in Hot Springs! Cash only

We had noticed Scoop's sign when we first arrived because the sign says that it's homemade and any ice-cream that's homemade is always good (that's a fact). Anyway we didn't go here until the last day of my vacation: BEST DECISION OF MY TRIP!!!!!! I had no idea what I was doing or wanted when I got there, but I... More

Excellent selection. Really good ice cream. However if your traveling be sure to have cash. Hard to believe a place that doesn't take debit cards. But they have an atm which will charge you $3. Can't give 5 stars.

A favorite stop when we're in Hot Springs. Wide variety of ice cream. A bit on the expensive side. Cash or check only.

AMAZING ice cream! Thick, smooth and creamy.Highly recommend the banana. It tasted just like homemade banana pudding. The server said it was made fresh in the store every day. Best ice cream I've ever had!

this is not fake ice cream, It is the real deal. It is a very smallish shop, but does have tables to eat your delicacies at. It has been in Hot Springs at least 5 years or more, and is still going strong even in the winter time.

Their ice cream is on the high side but very good. We decided to buy a pint instead of separate cups to save money but was still pretty pricey but as I said their ice cream is really good. Service was super!

Single scoop ice cream cones are $5.75 each. We really wanted to try some, but that is out of our budget for a quick snack.

We tried the cafe late and the fresh banana. They we both very good. The ice cream is made in store and the store is super clean. The cheapest option is a small and it is $5.25 so the prices are a little high but worth it.
