This place is the home to all that is COOL !! That would be quality ice cream and nostalgia galore. All over every wall, ceiling space, the tables, the chairs, the bathrooms, and in every nook & cranny is unique vintage items that take you back to the 50' & 60's. The owner must painstakingly detail everything all winter long so customers can be joyfully reunited with yesteryear. It's wonderful. One can relive being in the back seat of a car with the drive in movie speakers cranking out music from the days of happy.
So what about the ice cream ? Well, that's some of the best ice cream in the world. The rum raisin will have you dancing in the streets, especially when you couple that with some coffee chip ice cream. Of course they have the standard VAN-CHOC-STRAW for all you traditionalists but it's made with the best ingredients.
Are you a vegan or need lactose free, or even gluten free ? All that is covered with some unique flavors, as my wife appreciated having her special desert diet needs met by getting her ice cream desires satisfied.
With all the autographs and such throughout the shop, you know this is the destination for the famous who come to WILDWOOD !
The one thing this place is NOT about is - THIS IS NOT A McDONALD'S PLAYGROUND FOR UNRULY KIDS. This is PREMIUM, TOP GRADE ICE CREAM establishment with a TOP GRADE SETTING. If you have kids that act like wild banshees and you have no control over them - GO TO McD's, buy them cheap ice cream, and set them free on the monkey bars.
Even though Cool Scoops is all colorful and full of fun, you can tell that the ownership put their hearts into making this place wonderful for people who appreciate life and what we have been here in America. Cool Scoops brought my wife and I to relive a little moment of happy days gone by and some tasty cool creamy flavors. LOVE IT !

The ice cream is fine - not the best I had but you go to SCOOPS for the place. Anyone over 50 will enjoy the toys and items representing your past and childhood heroes. Service is quick and clean. Get a scoop and walk around the place for total enjoyment

A little expensive for ice cream but worth it. Fun decor for the family. You can sit in a 60s car booth. Definitely worth going.

Enjoy sitting in boothes made from classic cars. Worth the trip just to view all the memorabilia from 50s 60s and 70s. Wish they had more ice cream flavors to choose from. Great selection of cones and bowls. A fun experience.
